      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

F/A-18 Hornet Bomb Carrier (BRU-55) - references?

3 posts in this topic

I'm after photos of the twin-bomb carrier unit (BRU-55) used on Classic Hornets so they can carry 2 iron bombs (and their smart versions) on a wing pylon.

Managed to dig up a few photos from the internet, but no side-on photos and no details of the rear of the unit.

Help appreciated

Tried all that, but maybe my Google isn't as smart as your Google...got exploaded views, cross sections, low res photos of the units from 3/4 front ant and rear, a few photos of the device fitted on aircraft in the air or having bombs loaded...but no side-on photos.

Anyway problem solved. A friend has just send me a few photos he took at an airshow. Photos taken with a modeller's eye.
