Hunter FGA.9 Rhodaf (SW)


Rhodesian Air Force Hawker Hunter FGA.9 as modified by the South African Air Force to carry either Sidewinder or V3B "Voorslag" IR missiles. This was carried out at the SAAF's TFDC at Waterkloof in August 1979.

The main difference between the Rhodesian Hunters and other similarly modified Hunters is the addition of an extra weapons pylon between the two existing ones; most Air Forces simply used the external pylon.

 

At least two aircraft were modified this way. It is unclear what happened to them after Independence.

 

Credits go to Spinners for converting the stock FGS.9 to flyable, AleDucat for making the indispensable pylon and rail, and Jeremiah Weed for the idea and support. Thanks!

 

FREEWARE ONLY WITHIN THE TERMS OF THE COMBATACE AGREEMENT.

 

THIS IS FOR STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 ONLY AND WILL NOT WORK AS SUCH IN WOX/SF1.

You're right - the thing got left out. Apologies all round - too many things going on at the same time.

 

I've just submitted a fixed version.
