First Look

ALQ-147A(V)1 IRCM Jammer Pod for OV-1 Mohawk

If you haven't visited the Cobra Company website recently, you haven't seen the interesting research (and fun) that Chris Miller has been doing - he has restored a full-scale OV-1 Mohawk nose! So when you look at a resin detail set for the Mohawk cockpit, you'll see that this was a labor of love as well!

This set is designed for the 1/48 scale OV-1D Mohawk kit released by Roden in 2006. This set represents the AN/ALQ-147(V)1 "Hot Brick" infrared countermeasures (IRCM) that was carried on an underwing pylon. The "Hot Brick" was designed to jam the SA-7 man-portable air defense (MANPAD) shoulder-fired surface-to-air missile (SAM) that started appearing in Vietnam in quantity during the early 1970s.

The set contains the jammer pod, intake air scoop, exhaust duct, four stabilizer fins, a rear protective cover, and the exposed jammer elements. The instructions indicate that the pod could be carried on any of the three pylons under either wing and also provides painting intructions as well.

This set is definitely recommended for the Mohawk modeler and will provide another essential detail for your combat OV-1D Mohawk.

My sincere thanks to Cobra Company for this review sample!
