    Though it was never deployed, and probably only ever existed at the training and doctrinal level, I never the less have actually found a model(toy), of a Centurion set up as a SPAAG.

    @Fairline I will try to create its icon. However, I do not have much experience in creating Civ2 icons, so, re-shading may be needed.
    @Tanelorn Yes, that is true. Ferret is not in WW2 icons topic.

    /pedant mode/ Ferret was post-war, but I'd love to see an icon for it. If you need a hand with shading the Coventry, give me a shout.

    My unfinished attempt at creating Coventry Mk.I. If someone wishes, you can continue my work (unfortunately, Civ2 graphics are not my cup of tea)

    Differentiated between the Be-12 Mail (redid the nacelles) and its predecessor, the Be-6 Madge. The Be-6 was later modified to the Qing-6 in Chinese use.

    Mitsubishi F2, Japan's licence built slightly enlarged version of the F16, with a two piece canopy and extended range. The larger wing is derived from the 1984 "agile Falcon" design.

    Say, @Tanelorn, a request for two aircraft, but no rush, as they aren't for my current project, but for one of my four or five unfinished, but good start on, projects that are the highest priority to move to when I'm finished my current project, and I didn't want to forget these two while they're in the head. So, any chance of a Mil Mi-2 (I was quite surprised I couldn't find that anywhere I looked), and one of those newer (less than a decade old) KA F-50 fighters made in South Korea, please? As I said, no rush. Thanks, in advance!

    Well @Patine I happen to already have this. I modded it out of Gareth's F16, which is actually quite accurate as the golden eagle incorporates many parts and the general outline of the viper, as the latter was also made in Korea under licence. The only differences are the intake, the cockpit/front section and the fin. Users include South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and Iraq.
    I am almost certain I have seen a Mi-2 by @Broken_Erika at some point...

    Another very modern advanced trainer/ attack plane, the Alenia Aermacchi M-346 Master/ Yakovlev Yak-130 Mitten. The Italian version is outfitted with western engines and avionics, the Russian carries, well, Russian ones. The airframe is essentially the same. M346 operators include Italy, Israel (where it is called the Lavi, no connection with the older project) Poland and Singapore. Yakovlef operators include Russia, Algeria, Belarus, Laos and Myanmar while war obstructed deliveries to Libya and Syria. Had it not lost to the Boeing/Saab T7 Red Hawk, the Leonardo T100 variant could now be on order by the USAF, which would have been ironic for what started as a Soviet project...

    Thanks greatly. And you might be right about the Mi-2. Erika has a bad habit of putting out swaths of unlabelled units, sometimes making it difficult to pick them out accurately.

    Actually, that was the Mi-4 Hound.
