Built by the Sperry Company, if I'm not mistaken.

Oneshooter, my father was a Marine Corps Aviator from '52 to '71. I was raised at MCAS El Toro, Tustin and Iwakuni. He thought I was going to be a Cobra Pilot. When I went armor you would have thought that I told him that I was a heroin-dealing, homosexual campaign worker for Hillary Clinton. He calmed down after a few years. lol.

The A-5, if I'm not mistaken, also had an interesting way of dropping its nuclear ordnance. It spit them out of a pod between the engines.

Looks like you can see some of the designs that later went into the Vulcan in the AW 52.

Merry Christmas Oneshooter. Now post some tank or APC photos, so I have a chance.

Oneshooter, I'm still here. I just got back and have been a little occupied with: Planning a wedding; buying a house; packing up my stuff from storage, etc. I will have to say that the tractor does throw me though.

M551 Sheridan. The picture looks like their last deployment during DS/DS in 90-91. This was a scary vehicle for armor guys: bad missile/gun system, aluminum armor and a host of other bad products. Thank goodness by 1990 the only people using it were the 82nd.

Looks like the radial engine for a C-47. Very successful, per the thousands built.

I knew it was a military unit, and most units with heavily decorated patches are USAF or USN. It didn't look like any Navy Squadron I'd seen, so armed with that I Yahoo'd the entire writing on the patch. I looked at the first couple of entries and then found a hit. You'd be surprised how many Korea and Vietnam Squadrons have websites. No magic in finding it, but it was a good search. Can't wait for your next challenge.

Oneshooter, not trying to steal your thunder, but here's a cockpit for you. BTW, I haven't posted much here, because your questions have been too hard.

Weekend of 8-9 Jan 2005. USS San Francisco hit an underwater mound 350 miles from Guam, during high speed ops. One killed.

Russian Mine Dog, WW2. Trained to crawl under panzers with a tilt rod detonator on the pack on its back. Sometimes had problems though differentiating between Russian and German tanks. Tankers had a tendancy to shoot any dog that came near their vehicle. In the Marine Corps we had the same problem with artillerymen (just kidding).
