This image I snapped in Dallas last week of a Hughes 500 type light observation helicopter mock-up at FN’s booth made me think of another image I came across years ago.
Note the FN 12.7mm M3 gun pod on the skid and the FN P90 PDW stowed as a bailout gun by the observer’s seat.
The “other image” dates from Vietnam:
Loach cockpit showing smokes and the grenade bag filled with tear gas, baseball grenades, M26 grenades and white phosphorous. Also visible is the makeshift cyclic stick for the Scout in the event the Pilot is shot
