  1. Am planning to build the Airfix Jet Provost in armed configuration that was in service with the South Yemen Air Force. http://www.acig.info/CMS/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=75&Itemid=1 Photos showed that it carried Sura rockets and I have that in my spares box which comes from the Matchbox Strikemaster kit. I also noticed that the armed Jet Provost are (obviously) equipped with gunsights above the instrument panel and a standby comapass(?) hanging on its windscreen centre frame.. However photos I'd seen are not in the best resolution and angles to show clearly its construction and arrangement. Have searched the web, particularly walkarounds and was not able to find any photos or drawings of gunsight or weapon aiming sight on the JP. Would be most grateful if anyone can lead me to any website that depict this or post photos or drawings. As a matter of interest, 7 of the South Yemen Jet Provost T.Mk.52s were purchased by the Republic of Singapore Air Force in the early 1970s to supplement the Strikemasters in 130 Squadron. YK
  2. From the fighting in Yemen, I bring you the 122mm howitzer portee:
  3. Hot Skies over Yemen Vol.2 Aerial Warfare over Southern Arabian Peninsular 1944-2017 ISBN : 9781911628187 Helion & Company via Casemate UK When you think of Yemen it seems to be one of those parts of the world blighted by conflict. In more recent history it was divided between the British and Otter-man empires, then a British Protectorate in the South. Later after becoming independent it became a Marxist state. The two parts would unite only to later fall into Civil war. With no real functioning government the country seems to have fallen into control of extremists with a revolution in 2011, and coup in 2014 and a current civil war. Currently the US and Saudi Arabia are engaged in fighting there against forces said to supported by Iran. This new publication from Helion & Company deals with the aerial warfare over Yemen from where Volume 1 left off in 1994 following the civil war. Since then the Government has fought 6 campaigns against the "Houthis", and the Air Force has reequipped with newer equipment. Original Saudi involvement began in 2009/2010 when the war in Yemen spread over their boarder. The Saudis resumed operations in early 2015 using some of the most modern aircraft in their inventory including the Eurofighter Typhoon and F-15S. Also included are aircraft used by Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Bahrain, Qatar, , The UAE, and Kuwait in the conflict. The book looks at the following areas; Geopolitical Background Sa'ada Wars Begining of the End Storm of Resolve Multi-front War Stalemate The book is A4 softbound and 76 pages long. It is illustrated throughout with black and white photographs. In the centre are eight pages of colour plates showing profiles of the aircraft involved. Conclusion This publication brings the story of conflict in the region upto date with what we are now seeing on the news. If you're interested in the lesser known Air Forces, and conflicts of the war this is to be recommended. Review sample courtesy of
