Hawker Hunter FGA.9/3 inch rockets

Recommended Posts

Hi chaps

I know this is an old thread, but I thought it would make sense to post my question here...

As I am in the process of building an Iraqi Hawker Hunter F.6 I stumbled around this... There is a known photo (can be found on internet) of an early Iraqi Hunter carrying 3 inch rockets. Now I wonder, are those 25lb? 60lb?

Can this Aerobonus RAF rockets set be used in this case?

thanks in advance,

cheers

Probably no! The two sets show traditional WW2 type rocket launch rails, whereas the Hunter had tubular racks. The rocket attachments appear to be different too...

Thanks Bill.

I was kinda skeptic about the rails but thought the rockets might be OK.

I guess I could scratch build those tube racks but without appropriate rockets that probably won't happen...

cheers

I wish my Grandad was here he'd have sorted it (ex-armoured on Hunters in Aden).....
