Re: Using a helicopter as a ground attack bomber

Dear Todd,

The photos are of an ad hoc mounting (ie they come from pylons used on Lebanese AF Hunters) used during the Lebanon Army's fight to take over a refugee camp that a radical Muslim group had made their base. I posted a thread about it some months ago. Never saw those photos though.

Finally, see the photo below. It shows a Taliban anti-ambush arrangement (ie pre-9/11)where they took a Russian HIND 57mm rocket pod and mounted it on the turret of an armored vehicle mounting a 14.5mm machine gun. Pappy Gunny still lives on in spirit all over the world. <GRIN>
