Very interesting. Looks like a Predator or some kind of UAV feed.



I could do with one of those at work :D

I haven't received the 2006 edition of The Military Balance, I can't ID those Colombian aircraft.

Tucano, perhaps?

He almost made it to the border, based on the comms. I take it that ROE does not allow for pursuit over the border.

Pretty good ID off of that crappy imagery. I had no idea what it was.

I'm just guessing, but both AC looked like single engine Tucs. I know they're very popular in South and Central America for counter drug/insurgency.

That's probably what they should outfit the Iraqi Defense Forces with. Someday.

How recent was that video shot, Irish?

The super tuc was being considered for the Irish Air Corp But we picked [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFJpys6CY1Y&mode=related&search="]this[/ame] instead
