Aircraft / PolyKarpov I-1616 Dvoynoy Ishak
« Last post by Tophe on Today at 12:25:14 am »
A few weeks ago, a provider sent me a discount ticket to have some cheap things almost for free. I looked if it had aircraft model kits and yes! but not what I wanted to buy this year. At last, I have chosen 2 pieces of Zvezda Polikarpov I-16 1/144, tiny but fun maybe to build a zwilling!
(Dvoynoy ishak means Double donkey, while I am not sure, as Wikipedia was saying the Russian I-16 is named Ishak/Donkey but Google Translate says ishak means a$$Ö in Kirghiz).

I like this idea..I had all of italeris LVT's and the idea of a Aussie version with the Saladin turret would make perfect sense to me's a mod I could see them doing.

Why am I not surprised, Wardukw? :unsure: ;)

Oh, it was a few days ago when I saw a C-17 on approach to the air port / air base, in the middle of the day.

They are not unusual, but not exactly frequent visitors either. My sister who lives near the air port saw one late in the evening and checked Flightradar. Looks like it came from Beirut. That makes me think it had something to do with Peace Keeping operations.

The name Crocodile has always suggested a flame thrower to in the Churchill Crocodile.

Crocodile works because it's an Alligator with more bite. ;D

The Australian Army did operate LVTs after WWII.  They took part in one of military disasters when during their annual camp the 15th Northern Rivers Lancers, in March 1954, was marred by disaster in Stockton Bight.  They never mounted Saladin turrets but they did operate LVT(A)4s.  The vehicles lost by foundering were five LVT(a)4s, one LVT4 and two DUKWs.  :banghead:
