    This is a thread where we ask questions that pertain to identification of equipment, aircraft or any other military paraphernalia...

    For example, some people might ask questions about identification of aircraft, some about guns, some about torpedoes, all are valid and legal on this thread...

    The whole deal goes like this -

    1. Question is posted (a picture)
    2. Guess what that picture is
    3. Question asker will confirm whether your response was right or wrong
    4. If it is right, you get to ask your own question
    5. If it is wrong, go back to guessing :D

    Sometimes, it may so happen that the equipment given for identification is very difficult and people may struggle. It is the prerogative of the question asker to give ample hints and tips along the way to facilitate identification.

    If the question remains unanswered for more than two days, then the question asker must reveal the answer for that question and pose another new one in its place...

    If the question asker is uncontactable for three days after posing the question (doesn't respond or isn't online to help on the thread) and the question isn't answered by then, then the members can decide amongst themselves and pose a new question on their own to prevent the thread from going stagnant...

    (Moved from Military Aviation Quiz thread which was closed and archived)

    Ok... Identify this fighter aircraft...

    Have blacked out the appropriate places where some markings could have been seen which could facilitate identification (essentially the markings said the answer in Plain English)...

    Hint 1 - Look closely at the structure of the cockpit, the shape of the wings and the way the bottom of the nose tapers as it goes toward the propellers... That should narrow down the options for you...

    It is a World War 2 era interceptor but only limited numbers were built...

    Nope, not the JF-17, but that's very similar in performance to this plane... the JF-17 is almost as good as this one, but just misses out...

    The JF-17s speed is almost the same, airframe is as antiquated and the engines are as inefficient as this one, where the JF-17 loses out is its weaponry, this plane has better weaponry and hence is declared winner :rofl:
