Camera or some kind of periscope is possible. Will draw this thing exactly as appears.

Both above variants ready:

-Drawing of FAC variant with Sea Cat/Sea Skua is three quarter and I am not exactly sure for the correct position of Sea Cat.
-Also, I took the optic device on bridge from old drawing of Turkish Yildiz Class FAC, because it seem very close to that on BH.7 Mk 20 FAC drawing. However, Yildiz had Signaal LIOD Mk2.

Signaal LIOD (NOT LIROD) :

Do we have these in new part sheets? If yes, I will be glad to use.

And finally ready (with all shading)

The FAC variant is symmetrical from both sides, while the Minenunting has a inflatable in the opposite side of the PAP 104 ROV, otherwise identical. Is nessesary to mirror her to show the inflatable?

I don't think those 20mm guns are going to be operable in any kind of seaway

Ι can turn them around, no problem. The MCH however needs to be mirrored, explained why in text below.

The guns are single 30mm, they are reworked from Type 23 frigate. Indeed there is problem with guns in any kind of seaway, but these hovercrafts were designed like this. Drawing is as close I could from that in Sources thread.

The BH.8 appeared in 1966 but did not go further than a model in Hovercraft Museum. Only reference I have found is this cropped article from Aviation Week, showing the model as well. Does anyone has info about its dimensions, displacement etc? If yes, please post here.
