      friendly, Etienne
      The caption on the photo is erroneous. The aircraft is from Botswana; A2 is that country's registration prefix.

        Belgrano1977:

        Following on the Iraqi Mi-28... I think the machine with the dark gray IR suppressor on the exhaust is a Russian MI-28UB. The following pic shows a Mi-28UB and it looks very similar to it..

          It has only "come together" recently. They are still working on the Mi-28NM as well, so it has some way to go on its evolutionary path. Remember, the program stood still for over a decade, and only resumed somewhat in the 2000s. Serial production really only took off in 2009 when a dozen were made.
          Got two big orders from Iraq and Algeria though, along with a few rumored interests.
          Thankfully today the domestic order book is big so the plant is loaded with that alone.

            till next time thus,

            P.S. 2 ; there is an ERROR in the first page of ;http://www.sa-transport.co.za/aircra...tary/mil4.html >>> see Botswana DF ; 4 th pic !!!!
            For myself, the Trislander A2-AGX picture is, as Gkozak and Gerard mentionned, clearly a Bostwana DF aircraft. It's the caption under the second picture which is wrong.

                was this pic ever posted here? I can't remember. Anyway, Kuwait Lightning with the old roundels still in use. These are no longer used since the 1st Gulf war.

                          Unfortunately, a very nice looking plane too little used by the military.

                                Update on Croatian fighters:

                                Croatia's defence ministry says the current turmoil in Ukraine has nothing to do with a roughly five-month delay in returning its Mikoyan MiG-21bisD fighters and UMD-model trainers that are being overhauled in Odessa, instead citing technical problems.

                                These include issues with integrating new navigation and communication equipment from Czech supplier CLS, along with digital to analogue signal conversion.

                                Being performed under a 13.9 million ($19.3 million) deal forged through Ukraine's Ukrspecexport organisation, the project includes the overhaul of the seven aircraft and the provision of five additional single-seat examples, which are being refurbished and equipped to Croatian air force specifications.
                                http://www.flightglobal.com/news/art...kraine-397135/

                                If I have understood this correctly, this looks like a bargain for Croatia - 7 MiG-21 aircraft overhauled in a big way + 5 additional overhauled aircraft supplied. And all for less than $US20 million!

                                          I've searched, Gerard, to find the name of the bird on the Gyuana's A/F logo ; it's most probably a HOATZIN = the national bird of Gyuana.
