    Went away, but now I'm back. :)

    How about an easy quiz, so as not to strain anyone's brain this early in the new year?

    Please give the more common designations for the following weapons:

    1) Fagot
    2) Fishbed
    3) Flogger
    4) Flagon
    5) Hip
    6) Badger
    7) Blinder
    8) Bear
    9) Hokum
    10) Fitter
    11) Frogfoot
    12) Fresco
    13) Havoc
    14) Gainful
    15) Mainstay
    16) Papa
    17) Osa
    18) Sagger

    Bonus question:

    Using NATO standard military symbology, what size unit would be marked with the symbol "XXXXX" ?

    Have fun,
    /bruce

    2) MiG-21
    3) MiG-23
    4) Su-21
    6) Tu-16
    7) Tu-22
    9) I think it's the Kamov KA-50 helicopter
    11) Su-25
    13) Mi-28

    I probably got all these wrong, trying to remember some stuff I read for my NATO/Warsaw Pact project back in High School.

    Very good!

    Except:

    Mainstay is a IL-76 based AWACS plane. I'm not aware of the A-15 designation.

    Cheers,
