Title: Honduras Airforce Rafale Number 1 of 2.
Post by: chrisonord on December 12, 2010, 01:00:08 pm
Due mostly to a massive weapons and money seizure, by the Honduras special forces, the airforce was able to purchase 2 ex demo Rafale fighters from Dassault. Both aircraft were completely reconditioned and given new electronics to make them capable of using the varied weaponry of the Honduras air force. The one pictured below is armed with both British and Japanese LGB's and a U.S obtained LIGHTENING pod. The aircraft is perfectly suited to the fast and low level precision strike role, and these weapons are a lethal combination when used against Cartel key targets in sensitive areas. The other aircraft is assigned with the role of fighter/reconnaissance, and is tasked with photographing targets before and after attack, and by the other Rafale, or going on recce missions on its own. The aircraft shown below is the strike version carrying LGB's.

Thanks Morritz,
I had done my other Rafale in a wrap round jungle scheme too but the gloss clear coat completely ruined it, and I could not be bothered airbrushing 4 shades of green and 2 of brown again so I have just give it an all over coat of Tamiya matt medium blue, I might keep it this colour as it will be getting used as a recce bird.
Chers,
Chris.
