Those 'planes are ugly.

Ugly, that is, in the same way as a boxer with one ear bitten off and a broken nose is ugly. If you want to mess with them, it's going to hurt you, big time.

Wow, these are great. I really like the way you built an entire family, bringing them all into the same backstory.

Very plausible back stories and some brilliant modelling there Mart. Outstanding stuff mate, especially the later marks.

Interesting story with the Vigi! Are any of these birds combat veterans (Falklands, GW I, Balkans, GW II)?

Gorgeous work throughout and I appreciate how you got around the re-engining bugaboo that kept NAA-Columbus from every actually doing any major engine change-outs.  Minor JMN nitpick;  I think the Spey has a larger diameter than the J79 for much of its length, not just the exhaust.
