Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

German F-4 Phantom II conducting air policing in the Baltic airspace


E-3A AWACS aircraft from the NATO Airborne Early Warning and Control Force (NAEW&C Force) provided airspace security and surveillance support for the President of the USA during a visit in Germany on 4 and 5 June 2009. The AWACS are modified Boeing 707s (called E-3A), which are equipped with special radar capable of detecting air traffic over large distances and at low altitudes as well as it is capable of tracking ship traffic. The data can be transmitted directly from the aircraft to command and control centres on the ground, sea or in the air.

Well, some of the plane I liked most (and, before you ask, I am only competent on A models):

This one has been published in a study of downwash created by a/c, a French C-160 deploying flares, photoshopped for the downwash effects (my avatar has the original)



The most beautiful TurboProp plane ever built, IMHO (another French one)



The layout:



A German one, for a change, flaps deployed to allow the UH´s to keep pace



German (D model my guess? All?) cockpit, first showing the principal stuff, the other (part of) the secondary:





Details (German, AFAIK):





Goose Bay:



German flares, this time (D model)



Work (A model?):





Artist work



And now, they are going where the planes go when they are dying... Bedroefd (French)
