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>
