    Those look to be rocketpods not drop tanks Marco, so it looks these were really armed up! Notice the rocket ends in the photo were the pilot is captured without his helmet.

    Here is something for he tank guys ... looks to be in Bengazhi, it's a T55



    And this a rare beast a T72M1s during a parade ...

    Weathering is gonna be a breeze! theres virtually no weathering on the aircraft, no faded paint, no dirty panel lines, no chipping, no stains! just dirty tires Razz Laughing

    I have also solved the Aircraft numbering problem Adrian said about it yesterday... one of the aircraft in Malta is 508. The decals I bought for the Lbyan Air Force comes with 2 sets of numbers.... 510 and 408... so all I need to do is take the 5 from one of the sets and use it with the 408 to create 508!!

    thats great!!
    I was thinking about that earlier on today... if you are lucky enough to be given the numbers through 2 different registrations.
    If this kit and aftermarket your buying are good.. i will do the other aicraft cheers

    Now where is marco 109 to tell us the correct libyan FS camo scheme lol!

    yes, rocket pods they are!! mostly like 68mm projectiles and along with the built in 30mm cannon, so the aircraft is armed by the looks of it. I wonder against what they were going to be used. The RP can take out AFVs and soft targets and can be fitted with HE to fragmentation heads

    I think these two "unsung heroes" should have kamikaze'd their Mirages in Gaddafi's quarters while he was addressing the Libyan TV Twisted Evil

    THAT IS A HEROIC ACT not defecting cheers

    They are cowards not heroes Suspect
