    Unusual Danish Navy MH-60R Stores Question

    The Danish Lynx fleet could be equipped with door mounted .50 cal machine gun only. The aerial running along the lower part of the tail boom is a good oldfashioned HF antenna!

    Belgian F-16A MRP questions

    Mind you there are (at least) four different versions of the MRP with different sensors. Useful links: http://www.f-16.net/f-16_users_article2.html http://www.f-16.net/f-16_versions_article24.html https://www.terma.com/surveillance-mission-systems/mission-solutions/airborne-tactical-reconnaissance/

    Unusual Danish Navy MH-60R Stores Question

    It's an Emergency Life Raft Pod (ELRP) for the crew in case they are forced to ditch. Unlike its predecessor, the Westland Lynx, the Romeo has no flotation gear installed to keep it afloat after ditching so the crew have very little time to get out - let alone get out with a dinghy. Since the Romeos are flying a lot in the North Atlantic region, it was deemed necessary for crew safety.

    Moroccan RC-130H

    A SLAR is designed to look outward and slightly underneath the aircraft for mapping purposes. Some aircraft will carry a centerline or under-fuselage version designed to cover both sides of the aircraft with one antenna. Other aircraft may carry two separate antennas to cover one side of the aircraft each.. Very simple, the standard SLAR (usually) generates a picture of the terrain as it passes perpendicular to the aircraft. Thus, the platform need to be as stable as possible, and any aircraft maneuvering and instability (such as the antenna being mounted on the wing) will degrade the image produced. A Goggle search for “Airborne SLAR mapping” will give some interesting hits. The USCG tested a C-130 way back with a SLAR mounted under the tail planes.
