videoaviation.com has released another useful external store for your 1/32 scale tactical aircraft projects, the SUU-20 dispenser. The SUU-20 has been around for decades though if you believe the internet, the SUU-20 was used only by the F-15, F-16, F/A-18, and F-117. You'll find this handy training device on aircraft from the T-33 to the F-15E including the F-104, F-4, F/A-18, AT-38B, Mirage III/V, F-5, and more. While not something you'd see much in front-line squadrons, the SUU-20 was an ideal training aid for 'nuggets' (young aviator trainees) moving from basic flight training into the more advanced courses within the US and allied training commands. The SUU-20 can carry up to six BDU-33 bomblets (25lb inert bombs with smoke charges that can be seen from the air) and four 2.75" rockets.
This set is beautifully cast in tan resin and consists of the main dispenser shell, the nose section, eight BDU-33 bomblets (six used and two spares), 12 mounts and six suspension lugs.
This is a nice store for your next training project that will provide some visual interest aside from the usual load of Mk.82 slicks. You can find out more about this set and their other offerings here: videoaviation.com.
My sincere thanks to videoaviation.com for this review sample!
