:) :) !!

Ι think I have a profile of that VT.2 with the Bofors 57 somewhere, while the last illustration shows OTO Melara 76.

Do you know what year that Italian magazine was published?

1977-78, I think Iraq received SR.N6 Mk6C just before the war with Iran, probably 1979-80.

If you search "SR.N6 Mk6C" in Google, there is an article in 1983 War Machine Book and few more photos. The Iraqi hovercraft were painted in a green-grey camo.

BTW, these dummy missile launchers on above photo look very much to these in BH.7 Mk20 drawing on which I base my SB-scale drawing...Also on the article from italian magazine...

I have started the BH.7 Mk6 (a WIP exists in this thread) and will also do SR.N6 Mk6. There are SR.N4, SR.N5 and single prop SR.N6 in the old archives somewhere.

Question : Where can I created a new thread for the drawings? Some are never where (BH.7 Mk 6/Mk 20) and other entered service (e.g SR.N6 Mk6C)
