      Delivery Dates for PC-9's??

      Does anybody have a rough date for the delivery of our brand new shiny PC-9's. Is it not supposed to happen any day now?
      There is no problem that cannot be fixed with high explosive.

              They just had to add the day-glo orange.But anyhow vroom vroom.I'd have gone for a slightly darker gray but anything new and advanced with IAC on the side is welcome.

                    Slovenia upgraded its fleet of 9 PC-9Ms a few years ago into a version known as Hudournik (Swift). It is able to carry up to 1000kgs of ordnance, mainly of "dumb" bombs, unguided rocket launchers, gun pods, aux. fuel tanks and by some informations I've got, it is also wired to carry AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles. The conversion was done in cooperation between Slovenian defence industry and Israeli Radom. It also features a NVG compatible glass cockpit with a HUD.

                    im assuming so that our ones would have a pretty similiar load.

                      There isn't too much too difference in looks between the Super Tucano and PC9 so that colour scheme would be top notch.Probably one of the best trainer colour scheme for a trainer I've ever seen but that might be one of the attack versions of the Super Tucano.I was just writing up a post like that above but got beat to it.Skyraiders rock, but how about the experimental gunship version of the OV10 Bronco.Search the AFM boards for pics of it.The search things the same here.Just type in Bronce.There a whole thread about them.

                        Our PC-9s will be fitted with HMG and Rockets only, no MK 82s

                          So....when are they coming then?
                          If you have to do it, you always have to do it right. Either it makes a difference, or it’s good practice so that when it does make a difference, it gets done right.
