Question: Were the RAAF F-111s were flown from the right seat and landed on the left side of the runway? Just like your cars/roads?

and a bonus F-111 air crew killing kangaroo

There is another crew option:

So what this is telling me is the navaguesser was so confident in the pilot he just read magazines the whole trip?

^ Gotta get the boom up somehow.  ;D

EDIT:

Question: Were the RAAF F-111s were flown from the right seat and landed on the left side of the runway? Just like your cars/roads?

Like this.

aussiepilots

Okay, but while making the most obvious joke, I remembered another idea.
Reskit does a M230 Chain Gun mount from the AH-64 Apache in 1/72, 1/48, 1/32 and 1/35. Flip it upside down and you've got a neat remote-controlled weapon for an AFV. Just add some optic from another RWS, targeting pod, whathaveyou...

M230updown

I guess having a stand-alone M230 also makes it easier to rearm other helicopters or aircraft with this gun without having to rob an Apache kit.
Wonder if it would fit under a Bronco. Or stick it on a pallet and have it fire out the side of a light/medium transport. Spectre-on-a-budget.

Hmm, I wonder if a 48th M230 would look good on a smaller 35th vehicle...

Why? You'd just end up with a .50cal chain gun! :-\

The M230 isn't that big, anyway, you could fit it fairly easily onto a Humvee or Landy, ammo storage may be less, though, depents on how many crew you want in the vehicle. :smiley:
