    Interesting also to see R-73 training rounds on the plane too, as normally we see these on Flankers.

    Ähhhm??? R-73?? That's an ACMI-pod for recording telemetry data during exercises based on a PL-8 body.

    I thought it looked like one of those R-73 dummies they use for practice and often seen with Flankers, and the ACMI pods still have the rear PL-8 fins in them and are blue. Maybe bad memory. Will correct or update the database.

    No, those blue PL-8 bodies with the fins attached are indeed only PL-8 training rounds. The AMCI pod looks like this:

    Left wing is a PL-10 and right wing has that pod attached.

    Hello All, just wanted to drop in here and remind everyone to follow the rules of the forum, mainly to respect each other and opinions that others post. No one ever increased size of their dick by insulting and belittling others on the web. So chill, relax and have fun.
