The Veiled Vipers

I spoke to some of the pilots. The refuelling probe was removed for the ferry flight since there were fuel consumption implications as a result of the attendant drag. The probe will be fitted back shortly.

Does the same go for the FLIR/optical pod underneath the nose?

IF the above mentioned Attachments produce enough drag which will result in much more fuel consumption then these A/c are nothing but TIN CAN....

Funny...'the veiled viper', it looks more like a character from one of the disney movies.Wonder where they get all these weird names from. Wonder why they didn't name it ANALI? Whatever the name or logo I hope next time(hope it never occurs)they reach there on time(Mumbai attack)!

Hnbl. Mr. dallas:

Such is the annul of things!

You see, your ANALI joke goes back to where it came from. Thanks to Anon @10:35 -- well spoken.

So, for the next time, please keep your mouth shut and make sure not let your ANALI escape from where it belongs.
