    Nice! You can crash them things a lot quicker than you can build em.

    True, this one is a scratch build! Just because they flew over my head in Vietnam! I'm not gonna fly this one, it's gonna hang from the ceiling in my man cave!

    I had seen them before from a distance.... I knew they were STOL, just thought they were all mainly observation platforms. Never knew them to carry armament.

    Actually they have several options in the cargo bay, one option is a recoil less rifle and I think it had a magazine of several rounds. Another option was a rocket pod!

    Here's an interesting report on the Bronco, which is also being used to fight ISIS:

    I have a Lt. at work whose dad and uncle both flew them in vietnam. Both of them died while flying too. He has a love hate relationship with them. He loves the plane just because he grew up hearing his dad talking about them.

    I talked my way into almost everything that flies except phantoms, B-52s, and Broncos! Sure wanted to get in one of those for a hoot!
