Sufficiently accurate for train busting and also carried by Beaufighters for ship busting.I remember many years ago reading a statistic that about 1% of rockets hit their targets, and estimating that a squadron of 12 Typhoons carrying eight rockets each might get one rocket on target.
Well done Trigger!No there was a ME 108 Taifun (Typhoon) and so you can't call the Taifun Taifun. They did the same with the Puma, first they would call it Panther, then they got cold feet and called it Igel (Hedgehog). After much trouble they called it Puma. I hope nobody told them that the SdKfZ 234/2 sometimes was called Puma or they will rename it to Pink fluffy Unicorns.
Sad F 104 GE AF saga -I think you will find the GE AF had so many F104 Starfighter widows in the 1960's they had their own association.
Politics are real, but the Germans are more about their French besties these days.Ah, procurement decisions.....
German F-35 decision sacrifices NATO capability for Franco-German industrial cooperation
Israelis [/B]and Italians, as well as the Luftwaffe from this unit again.
I hope all are well.
Odd that the Beeb describe them as being from the 'German Armed Forces', that will be the Luftwaffe then- or does that leave them feeling uneasy?
