  1. I believe the sensors you’re referencing are AAR-47s, not APR-47s. The AAR-47s are missile warning sensors, not RWR. The RWR sensors are the black dots on the nose and look like APR-39s.
  2. I believe it was part of the Limited Night Rescue System (LNRS) that was equipped on a limited number of HH-53s in the early 70s.
  3. That should work. No optics or anything on the weapon since gunners walk the rounds onto the target rather than "aiming" per se. The only accessory would be a PEQ-2 or PEQ-15 on the side of the forward rail assembly.

    They are telemetry antennas since it’s a test aircraft.
  5. He's talking about a CSAR rescue mission commander (RMC) role. Think a Sandy but for the Navy and not as specialized.
  6. Then that must have changed. All of the ones they use now are stenciled on.
  7. The Eglin birds are a different red than the Edwards aircraft. The Eglin aircraft used the same scheme as the Indian Springs aircraft did in the 1980s with insignia red as the color. The Edwards color isn't international orange but it's not insignia red either unless it's really faded. I don't think that the AF would have slightly different shades for the same thing but weirder things have happened. Edit: I think that the Edwards scheme is International Orange. This 416 FLTS F-16 is International Orange based on all of the decal sheets for it. And it makes sense they’d
  8. Ref https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a248695.pdf This video has some forward interior and ramp shots
  9. The pintle post has a detent that would "lock" it into place into the windstream. The weapon would then just hang.
  10. So I didn't know where to put this since this the the closest thing to an ODS MH-60 thread but I found an interesting picture of an MH-60A during ODS. There's no tail number but it's definitely an MH-60 based on the FLIR and the M134.
  11. It's called a K (Kangaroo) duck. It is attached to the FRIES bars.
  12. http://www.nmusafvirtualtour.com/cockpits/CW_tour/CW-29.html Look at the attached virtual exhibit from the AF museum. They are located on the side walls just behind the green brass bags.

  14. That is the Bulldog system. It was the only flare system for the H-60G until the IEWS in the late 90s. The second part of this thread has some more photos with Bulldog.
