Pariacaca Mk3 fuerza aérea de la Argentina, 1979

the first foray of Argentina into the maritime recon role, the Pariacaca ( An Inca God of water ) was a pedestrian affair with two piston engines , and a trail dragging undercart. She had a crew of 6 and only in the mk3 version was a radar added to the airframe.

Operated over the South Atlantic in the maritime recce role, search and rescue and transport role for over 20 years until she was taken out of service in 1980 so missing the falklands war and it's chance of glory

THE SHORTS BLACK EAGLE

During the summer of 1978 Operation Hickman was held in the North Atlantic and Canadian coast, the senario was based around the possibility of The New Commonwealth re-enforcing Canada in times of Trouble.

As usual the U.S. took a great interest in what was said and done in these manouvers and how the New Commonwealth responded to probing from its bombers and elint aircraft.

As usual U.S. aircraft took off from bases in Ireland and delved deep into the Atlantic coming upon the Carrier Groups from the East and South, well away from possible New Commonwealth interceptors..........or so they thought.

The Carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth was steaming on a roughly Westerly heading after completing the days traing schedule, she was broadcasting in a clear radio code and was using her search radar to sweep the area, in effect she was lit up like a Christmas tree for the elint aircraft and like moths drawn to a flame they started to cluster around her.

Then the radio intercept ratings upon Queen Elizabeth heard it, the clear cry of a startled pilot, a cry warning of air interception radar locking on. The consternation was infectios and a babble voices was heard warnings of radar and of aircraft closing in, aircraft that drew along side, aircraft where the crew waved and took hand held pictures, aircraft where the crew could be heard to laugh over the radio, but most of all aircraft with the God dammed British roundel.

The British Ambassador reported that the lights in the Pentagon burned long into the night over the sudden apperance of the new long range interceptor. The US Airforce had no answer to this at the moment and their bombers where now vunerable in places they had previously thought safe.

Thus was the world made aware of the exisance of the shorts of belfast Black Eagle, ( named for a soaring eagle which flies 100s of km every day ) the new very long range interceptor and patrol fighter of the RAF and New Commonwealth airforces as well as the Commonwealth allies of Portugal and Poland.

The aircraft is portrayed as one of those on that first day high over the Atlantic, she has the standard mixed armament of 4 Skyflash missiles and 2 Blue Bamboo ii Nuclear tipped missiles. She also carries the two extended range tanks which enabled the plane to complete this mission sucsessfuly.

The Black Eagle was only ever a limited service aircraft and its numbers where always limited and never revealed by any New Commonwealth source, but the did become a familiar sight to US, Soviet and Red Chinease bomber crews far from base

During the Great Patriotic War the Soviet Union found its self desperatly short of aircraft and decided to copy the Spitfires supplied by the United Kingdom. When the plan was put before Comrade Stalin the poor artist given the job of visulising the plan had never seen a Spitfire. He collected all the information possible for his drawing, But alas his information was faulty and he drew the wings back to front. This mistake would probably have gone un-noticed had not Comrade Stalin commented on the unusual shape of the wings. Rather than admit his mistake before Stalin, Brianovich compounded the error by claiming he had improved the design. Thus was born the Brianovich Br1. A medicore copy of the Spitfire. ................PART1 OF THE BRIANOVICH STORY.

This is a little series I'm putting up of some very very bad models i got from the £1 shop.

The kit has only 9 parts fits like a pile of 💩 but for all its faults i sort of like it lol.

A Lancaster to come maybe?
 

Mobile Launchers for AH2.jpg
Standing tall

Almost fifteen years after the completion of Mobile Launcher 3, the construction of ML-4 and 5 was commissioned by NASA from Ingalls Iron Works. $25mn each and 380 feet tall, the two new mobile launchers and their associated Launch Umbilical Towers were fitted to support crewed and un-crewed launches of Saturn V and Saturn I+ boosters.

Built on site, both launchers would play key roles in the Ares Programme, launching test flights of the Caelus Interplanetary Injection Booster and the Mars Exploration Module, as well as KS-IVB Orbitankers.

What if
The German Empire had Spaceflight program in 1980s ?

Explanation to image
The Rocket in middle was build by Werner Von Braun for German lunar landing program in 1960s,
This "Saturn" use kerosine and hydrogen peroxide in first stage and "CSM" and lunar lander, second and third Hydrolox engines.
The Rocket on right is Saturn big brother with 6 engine in First stage, bigger second stage with high pressure Hydrolox engines.
and first stage has wings for reuse !
top Right you see Lunar program with "CSM" and lunar lander and Germany first space station (yes that there version of Skylab).

The Rocket left and down is Germany Raumfähre called Sänger.
The Payload bay is same size of US Space Shuttle and that has it reason:
Either Eastman Kodak or Carl Zeiss AG can't not bend the laws of optics on reconnaissance satellite and hardware
Here the Germans use the Sänger with there version of KH-10 Dorian in payload bay.

The Launch site is in Mittleafrika east coast, south of Daressalam and is called "Weltraumbahnhof Von Braun" since 1977.
