Good question. Of course, the answer depends upon when the Buccaneer enters US service. How about 'A-11'?

There's no confirmed A-11 designation in the current system (A-10 was applied in the '70s, A-12 in the late '80s). Going by the F-111C and F/A-18s, I doubt that Australia would apply its own designation. Maybe JA-11 for the JASDF?

Well the airframe is an S2 which entered British service in '62, so '64-'65 tri-service introduction in my world, therefore I could call it the A-7. Either that or go with  Logan's suggestion of A-8 with the A-7 being used for more of a CAS role with the A-8 fulfilling anti-ship and deep strike roles.

Looks great!!  If you are taking requests, I definitely have one for a Buccaneer in Marineflieger markings, either MFG1 or MFG2.


Hmmm sounds like it might be a plan. Could you post a pic or two of the scheme here please?






These should do for samples.


Indeed they do!

@Story - The S-18/1000 is my all time favourite 20mm AT Rifle.  Huge and heavy but oh so pretty.  :)

I have had three models of the S-18/1000.  The first was cast pewter/lead/white metal and may have been 1:32nd scale. 

I think I had the same kit, shoe-horned it into a resin CV-33/35. No pics, gave that one away.

Meanwhile, Hungarian.

Finally finished this project.

Depending on when this is, too, you could just use "A-8". A lot of people don't realize that the Harrier (AV-8) is in the attack aircraft line.

Cheers,

Spent yesterday finishing off my 1/700 LCAC.   





First time I ever had to rescue a whole tank from the paint jar too.

I found this very interesting - re the IL-102:

Quote
"By 1982, Ilyushin had completed 2 prototypes under private funding and re-attempted pitching the IL-102 to the Russian military through completing costs assessments and 372 demonstration sorties. The results came out to that when compared to the Su-25, the IL-102 costed less to build & maintain, was heavier (by ~10,000lbs) but better armored, had more redundancy built-in structurally, and could carry 3,800kg more offensive ordinance. Despite all these benefits, none were ordered and the IL-102 failed to enter mass-production."

Also of interest is the following scaled drawing comparing the difference in size between the IL-102 and the Su-25, and for that matter, the A-10!!
