Not bad, for off-the-cuff. What do I win?
Here's a great aviation picture site.
Yeah, but the Galebs trade outright speed for nose authority. Just about any airframe can be modified to carry a Python IV which can negate any supposed advantage.
There's a story floating around about how a Super Galeb and some Mig21's bombed the NATO base at Tuzla.
Makes for interesting reading however unlikely it may be.
You get to pick the next airplane to identify.
Softball. Not much of a fighter, even less of a jet
I don't know older planes as well, nor am I up on the post-war British military planes.
Here's one for you Luftwaffe fans
I vote this the snootiest thread.
A real snoot fest, but fun to look at.
This one? (Trick question)
The F-2? Japanese version of the F-16.
Edit: Electronics by Mitsubishi.
here's a sorta hard one:
The NATO name was Bounder. M50? But I don't know much about that plane, or the manufacturer. I think it was unsuccessful. That's a pretty obscure one.
Any other interesting planes?
yeah, i'm damned any time i try searching the manufacturer
i think i made a thread about these guys once, not really "aircraft" in the technical sense, but damn cool
That's one of those ground-effect Soviet transports the Russians were playing with. I'd have to google around a little to get the name. What a cool machine. The Russians seem to be willing to go out on limb a little with their aeronautics.
I'm thinking M4, just guessing though.
That looks like one of the ground effect aircraft the Solviets were trying.
I really doubt the thing flew.
Shit! 205'ed by Bubba.
the Bounder (first pic i posted) was an actual flying aircraft, from the late 50s, totally dumb soviet attempt to match the B 58. no modern aerodynamics (note the fuselage looks like a barrel) i think it barely cracked 1000 mph, even with a ton of power.
the second pic is the Ekranoplan, the ground effect plane, that happens to be the largest of them, but there was a whole bunch of different types.
