From Janes Defence Weekly, September 1963
A two place all weather interceptor now entering service in substantial numbers. Rebuilt and reverse engineered from an as yet unconfirmed defection of an RAF type - together with its crew. Details are still sketchy at this time and will be confirmed in later editions.


More to follow  :blink:

Aha! The 'Vickers Viagra' rises again (see last year's Styrene Junkyard GB)!.  Too good a name to pass up, although as Vickers were by 1963 part of BAC, wouldn't the BAC Bo...
No, I'll stop now before I offend any one.  ;D ;D

Oops, sorry kb, don't recall that. I wouldn't want to stiff anyone on getting credit for the name. Please don't be too hard on me and I'll try to be an upstanding member of the board from now on.

You just fill your boots with the name, mon brave, if there were any property rights to it they weren't especially intellectual!   ;D ;D

Comrades, let us see what Comrade Ianski has devised. Remember, Soviet creations are built with the sweat and blood of all Proletariate workers, so beware, comrades, of imperialist dangerous sub-standard tools. Keep your tools safe and clean.
Comrades, Up the Proletariate!! :tank:
