70's NATO Vs Warsaw Pact in Europe GB Chat

Recommended Posts

With the 80's era NATO Vs Warsaw Pact in Europe having just started today we got chatting about some of the subjects that just miss the cut-off date. You can imagine it, lots of silver heavy metal in the skies, MBT's rumbling about, surface ships including the last of Britain's Fleet Air Arm going about. Sound fun? Okay the fashion and music could be dodgy but so were those things in the 80's :lol:

Why not! :thumbsup: - I'm old enough to remember the '70'es - Sundays without cars on the streets because of oil shortage, disco, Grease, the rise of the young Arnold Schwarzenegger and - what is more interesting in this context - The Armsdeal of the Century - which plane would grace the skies over Europe - The YF-16? - The YF-17? The Viggen? or the Mirage F.1? :hmmm:

Well - we know now, but back then - it was so exiting. I even built a F-16 in green camoflage - Well the RDAF F-100 was green, as was the Draken, the F-104 and Hunter....!

So - Yes - I'm in as well! :winkgrin:

Cheers :bye:

No need to think about it from my side, it's a resounding yes ! Speaking of aircrafts alone, these 10 years saw the last months of service of some old classics like the Sabre and the F-86 and the arrival of aircrafts still in service today like the F-15. There's potential for a large number of subjects with some interesting markings
