The Hellenic Center of Polar Research operates several aircraft, including fixed wing aircraft and helicopters, all "iced". Types in service today are:

Fixed wing : CC-154 Bison C.3, HAI AC-142P*, DHC Dash 7-150(H)**, DHC-6 Twin Otter, Pilatus PC-6 Turbo Porter
Helicopters : Allouette III, AB-412HP, AS-332L2 Super Puma, S-92H(P) Super Hawk***

* This is the iced version of the Hellenic AC-100 series passenger aircraft. They are based on the military AC-120 series with side door, increased fuel capacity and strengthened landing gear.
**These Dash 7 are similar with that of real life British Antarctic Survey. Originally bought through Olympic Airways funding, they are maintained by OA together with OA own Dash 7, which are still in commercial service.
***Iced variant of Sikorsky S-92, ordered through a large order of S-92 for Hellenic Army Aviation and the civilian Sky Aviation helicopter airliner (which main activities are serving oil platforms in Hellas and Hellenic Orthodox Church in Holy Mountain and Fanari Exclave).

And the CC-154 Bison C.3 of HCPR. Despite having civilian registration, these 2 aircraft still retain the refueling probe and crews are also trained in refueling, but not as often as RHAF ones. However, HCPR crews qualified in flying the Bison are full capable for air refueling.

Note that registration would be "SX-D##", meaning Hellenic registered civilian aircraft with four engines. Next 2 letters mean aircraft type and number in service. But I am not sure yet.

Say, do you need SB-scale aircraft drawings for your AU? I've done the Bison already.

Two new variants of Alta 1700 in previous page:

Antitank variant with ARIS IX, a hellenic derivative of Israeli LAHAT missile. The ARIS IX launcher holds six missiles and is unique to HLK.

City buses from my AU:

Left 2 belong to Thessaloniki Urban Transport Organization, right 2 in Athens Urban Transport Organization. Note that half of those Citaro buses have CNG engines. Manufacturing under license program will be completed in 2021. In ELBO bus models, numbering system is "C" for city bus and ''T" for regional buses and coaches. Then follows the year when production started, eg 2012 and 2014 for the Citaro and Citaro G. All feature the most powerful engine option, with 326hp (diesel) and 295hp (CNG), coupled to a 5 speed ZF auto.

In Athens, more numerous bus was the venerable Mercedes O405N/GN, with 1,160 from 2,400 buses in its peak in 2006. About half had CNG engines. Fleet includes also latest gen MAN Lion's City and local derivatives of Volvo B7L/LA, B9L/LA, B10L from ELBO and Sarakakis factory, plus Vanhool A300/A308 diesel or CNG. These where re-engined with EURO 4 engines some years ago. In Thessaloniki Volvo and Scania almost dominated streets until 2016. Before these Citaros previous Mercedes buses where a local derivative of MB O317, in service from early 1960's to mid 1980's. These Citaros were also first CNG buses there, while Athens operates CNG buses since early 2000's. If someone wonders about, rest city buses in Thessaloniki were Scania N112/113 and a local derivative from ELBO with Steyr diesel.

Talking about city buses, most numerous city bus in HLK is the O405, followed by local variants of Volvo B7R/B7RLE, B10L(Sarakakis exclusive), B7L/B9L while older B10M (in standard and shorter 11m version) are still in service (latest 1990's B10M MkIII chassis in Sarakakis "Alexander" derivative). Other are DAF SB220 Castrosua, Vanhool A300/Α308/320 and various minibuses in cities with narrow roads.
