Thanks Jon.  That looks like it started out as a MiG-17.

Thanks folks  :D

Jon: Cheers, I'd forgotten about the MiG-17SN  :-[  I love those pivoting guns (it's amazing how often the Real World turns out to much weirder than what-ifs!). Anyway, it looks like Messrs. Mikoyan and Gurevich beat my Chinese 'innovation' by about 15 years  :-[

... Adding AAM to the mix certainly gives it a more dangerous look.

Thanks Jeffry! BTW, RW North Vietnamese MiG-17s could carry a pair of K-13 missiles too.
