View Full Version : Tigers
OooRaah go get them Tigers!
Tim HMM-262 65-67 RVN 66-67
So sad to hear about the first Tiger casualty. My brother is a Tiger, in TQ right now. He was part of the flight, but in a different chopper. Too close to home for me. My prayers are with our fallen Tiger's family.
Thanks for the update Larry, our prayers go out to his family and Marine Brothers and Sisters.
For those of us who are out of date:

* What is the box for just below the painted number 3400?
* What is that gadget that looks like a ship's lantern?
There are actually two items that are part of the ASE (aircraft survivability equipment) gear each deployed phrog gets. The units on the stub wings are flare dispensers and the mounts by the exhaust outlets are to defeat heat seeking missiles.
The "Ships Lantern" is what senses a missle launch at the bird, I was told in P-Cola by the HAC of MQ411 (Lady Ace 09 in Saigon 1975). Once sensed, the stub wing containers automatically launch heat seeking decoys
