    ...It's just like how they have brand new Mitsubishi F-2's, instead of calling them overpriced Japanese F-16's! Embarassed Razz

    Just noticed that helicopter in the post above... clever positioning of the optronics ball... above the cockpits but below the rotor so you don't have to expose both crew to enemy line of sight with a chin mounted package and don't have the vibration problems of an optronics package above the rotor...

    Regarding that rifle, I am feeling withdrawal symptoms from my loss of SLR and AK... Sad
