MILAVIA: New Aircraft section, or upgrade...
« on: April 08, 2005, 04:52:27 PM »
I am considering to do the next aircraft section in similar fashion of the Su-27 section. Meaning, that will have extended variants, operators, armament, history and hopefully some good quality photography by semi-professional aviation photographers. Now I can pick a new aircraft (N) to add, or upgrade (U) an existing section. It depends on having a source available which can be used as a basis for more updated information from the internet. It also should be an aircraft with quite some versions or operators.

At the moment, I am thinking about the following:

N - MiG-23/27 (although my primary non-web source is from 1986)
U - F-4 Phantom (I've got the Airtime publication)
N - Tu-16 (got airtime's Tupolev bombers)
N - T-95/142 (same as above, although I need another one to supplement it)
U - F/A-18
N - Su-15
N - F-100 thru F-106 (got Airtime's Century Jets)
N - F-104 (most challenging of above, although already some good sources exist on the web)
N - Harrier
U - F-15 (good sources available on the web)
U - Su-25
U - Tornado (although I am planning a dedicated website)
N - Mirage III (got a good book on it)

Any preferences or other suggestions people?

I would love to see some stuff on the MiG-23/27 as that's an all time fave, but the century series jets runs that a very close second. (F-100 especially).

Thanks, yes it would be cool, but I don't have time for everything. I am personally more into the fast jets, than helicopters. But as you can see in the air force pictorials and aviation news, I don't forget about them!

Alrighty, the Su-15 section is online, check it out at http://www.milavia.net/aircraft/su-15/su-15.htm

We can have another vote again! To the list above, I like to add the AH-64 Apache, AH-1 Cobra and Mi-24 Hind helicopters!
