Yep - anything that could carry Firestreaks could carry Red Tops with a few black box changes. However I think (but I'm not sure) that either of those missiles requires a radar, because even though they're heat-seekers, they're designed to be cued onto the target by radar input.

As another customer, how about Oman?

1) Pretty much as supplied, but with modified aerials etc...
2) Indian
3) Centreline GSh-23, two tanks on the inners and four R-60s on twin adaptors on the outboard pylons.




I agree with this....a pair working in conjunction with a Mig 29 maybe......something like the RAF Hawks n Tornado's ADV a while back..........or........along the same lines with a Finnish colour scheme with same sort of load out...nice
BODY,BODY....HEAD..!!!!

Bump!  Any progress Carlos?  Might be worth resrurecting it for the Gnat Themed Build?
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.

Apart from the fact that this version only has one engine, it does bear some resemblance to the Mk 5......  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
