    I fear I will have to vote against one of the most beautiful jet fighters ever designed.

          The Mirage III is one of my favorite jet fighters. Still I felt the C-130 was more influential.

                  we all so used the mirage 3. SAAF used to attack some heavily defended targets by flying under 30ft in Angola and long tossing the bombs before dropping back to 30ft and high tailing it out of the area

                        How do you drop back to 30 ft? and what were they heavily defended by?

                              a example

                              Air Defence Deployments at start of Operation Moduler (Aug 1987) Cuito Cuananvale Airbase

                              The airfield was protected by the following SAM deployments: 2 x SA-3 sites, 2 x SA-6 Bty, 4 x SA-8 Gecko Bty, 2 x SA-9 Bty and 3 x SA-13 Bty.

                              Anti-Aircraft Artillery consisted of: 57mm (5 x 6 point sites); ZU-23-2 (10 x 6 point sites); 20mm (2 x 4 point sites), ZSU-23-4 (2 x Bty).

                              Radars included: Spoonrest (2), Barlock (2), Flat Face (4), Side Net (2), Flap Wheel (2), Low Blow (2), Landroll (4), Thinskin (3), Straight Flush (2), and Gundish (4)


                              The airfield had an extensive cover, the latter excludes doctrinal deployments associated with the Brigades that had their own organic MANPADS, AAA and SAM systems, that were staged there on their excursions to the East of the Cuito Cuananvale river.
                              Any thing but flying low means death

                              you think you a real "bleep" solders you "bleep" plastic solders don't wory i will make you in to real "bleep" solders!! "bleep" plastic solders
