Agree. Aggressor roles usually involve ECM not targeting, I see no value in carrying a Sniper in that role.

Mark, couldn't get your link to work. I Googled the site and got there by removing changing the "https" to "http" in the address. Couldn't find the Elta 8222. Scalemates lists it as part AIR.AC-055 but when you look for it on the Air-Graphics site it shows that number to be BLU-177 Durnadal Rockets for future release.

 

The only other Elta 8222 I found in 1/72 is the Wolfpack one, which is hard to find. I did find one on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/Wolfpack-ELTA-Jamming-Resin-WP72068/dp/B017COW8V0

Its sold by Lots of Models who are a very good vendor.

Mark's Air Graphics link worked fine for me "as is," but it may take a moment or two for the page to load properly. AC-055 does seem to be the correct product  number, the Durandal set is AC-185.

 

Though it's not currently available anywhere that I know of, a 1/72 Elta 8222 was also done by Paragon (in fact I believe they did them in all three major scales).

That's weird. I get a secure connection failure in both Firefox and Chrome. If I change https to http or use the company link provided by Scalemate (which uses http) then I can get to the site, and the pages load just fine. But, there is no Elta-8222 and the product list doesn't go as far as AC-185, AC-144 being the last set displayed. I think there is a problem with the sites SSL certificate and by using the non-encrypted http address I may be getting to an old version of the site. Not sure why you are not getting a SSL error. Anyone else having the same problem?

Here's the error Chrome throws up:

 

This site can’t provide a secure connection

air-graphics.co.uk sent an invalid response.

While the photo above is most definitely not a Sniper, the 18th in Alaska uses Sniper pods, and the 64th used Litening for one Red Flag. Just as F-15Cs now carry them for air intercepts, it is useful in identification.   I was talking to the 64th a few weeks ago and they said they could really use them to go against 5th generation opponents, and it may be possible now that they are getting block 42 jets .

They are getting block 42’s again?  That’s cool
