      Thanks for the confirmation.

      By the way do You know more about the specific version ? Regarding the nose I'm surprised, the typical pitot is missing, hinting, a radar (maybe that small AESA we've seen some time ago?), while the rear section seems different to the standard L-15/JL-10 AJT-version but more like the AB-equipped LIFT version.

      He was my North, my South, my East and West,
      My working week and my Sunday rest,
      My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
      I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.

      The stars are not wanted now; put out every one:
      Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
      Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods:
      For nothing now can ever come to any good.

        It should be the version based on the 06 prototype with variable nozzles (Al-222K-25F?) and the PESA radar - looks like a modified NIIP OSA if you ask me..

            Very interesting picture of the Rwandan Gazelle. Wonder what the insignia on the tail is? Might it be the current flag?

              I guess it is... but not quite sure if it's the current flag or unit insignia.

              I'm somewhat leaning toward the french gazelle, not the rwandan one as long as there was french intervention in the rwandan genocide in 1994.

                This is the only other pix I have of the Rwanda Gazelle to compare.

                    Holy cow.. You sure have an outstanding collection Chris.

                    I'm super excited about your pic of Rwandan Gazelle right now.

                    Thanks for providing it.

                    My kudos to your insane collection of military aviation around the world.

                    What else can I expect more from which this Rwandan Gazelle was published.

                    That would be great if you could post anything that is Rwandan something like
                    Rwandan Alouette lll or Ecureuil, Dauphin.

                    Greeting from Jin-ho, South Korea.

                        Most of my pix of Rwanda probably came from this forum.

                            Following the latest info, the Zambian L-15 are standard AJT-versions "only".
