alas, he didn'tIf only the good Colonel has access to this level of military tech..
debatable, looks are subjective..What a machine! The most beautiful fighter ever produced.
The colonel's forces didn't have two things :alas, he didn't
so what'll it be .. burnol or fresh ones ?
Maybe I will watch the vid tomorrow but let me say now that the Thunder is not a good-looking plane at all.Enjoy the camera work and Imagine as If you are watching Thunder not Raptor...
In its class, I think its fine.The colonel's forces didn't have two things :
1. Good air defense.
2. A powerful ally like Russia. Russia learnt from its non-assistance to Libya in 2011 and assisted Syria then on. If you watch that interview of the Jamahiriya spokesperson Moussa Ibrahim he says the Libya didn't have powerful friends. I have tagged you in that thread.
But let me tell you that perhaps the first remote weapons station for a military ground vehicle was done in the Jamhiriya either during or before 2011. There was a small Western article with photo of such a captured vehicle during the 2011 invasion. Though this system was not very sophisticated it can be that other militaries got inspired by this system and now RWS is common in all many new armored vehicles.
Maybe I will watch the vid tomorrow but let me say now that the Thunder is not a good-looking plane at all.
