There is no paralell in warfare, to such courage and determination in the face of danger, over so long a period. Such devotion, should never be forgotten.

It's Cliffs call but I think the TDN gets it. To be honest the designations are a bit confusing and there's not a lot of difference between the variants. There's also an XBQ-4 (which was what I thought it was), Either way it's an interesting aircraft which was used operationally :shock:
