basically modify an aircraft into a new role by adding radomes or lumps and bumps.

eg.

aew hercules - build up a hercules and add the radome to it like the uscg version or add radomes to the front and back like the aew nimrod.

anyone else in?

Several AEW proposals to throw into the bag:






I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Another damm fine idea. In fact, I did this a few years ago. Navalised a Canberra and made it a carrier borne ASW machine. There were pictures of it on the old site, but alas it no longer survives. It was wilfully destroyed by a nasty little kid.

The 737, 707, and DC-8 are all aircraft I've wanted to convert into some sort of jet powered sub hunter.   In the prop world, a D.H.-4 for WW-1, a Heller DC-6, and an A-26K have come to mind in various scenarios as well.

Got an old Airfix Trident half done that I might convert into summat like that. Add some lumps, hemp paint, ...

B-52 with twelve Mk46 torps under the wings and a MAD boom? (Would need to get a B-52 first, though...) An SH-64, with torps rather than Hellfires, and a dipping sonar in place of the cannon.

Hehe, an air-launched version of ASROC for helicopters would be cool...

And, while not quite fitting the theme here, how about converting a Raptor or a JSF into an underwater craft? :-)

V-22 with a towed MAD boom, dipping sonar, ejectable sonobuoys, and torps from an ASW helo.
