I know why, but since I'm still a nugget around here, I'll keep my yap shut.

Don't tell him why many many years ago F-15 guys put a cheap 4x kmart quality scope on their dash next to the HUD.


Was it to make Ivan think that it was some sort of IR pointer as in the Mig-29? Heard of another story where F-15 crews attached a MXU-648/A baggage pod with odd antennas as a fake EW pod. It was shown off to a Bear crew, who photographed and reported it back to Russian intel

Watch History Channel's Dogfight series. You'll learn all you should know from that.

The scope was for low level bikini spotting when flying over water.... :lmao:
