Dermot, that looks so right, the Blackhawk looks to me like a bit of a brute of a chopper but with IAC markings it could be called the 'Notorious' :bat: :bat: :>

Irish Army Panhard VBL

In the mid to late nineties, the Irish Army realised that its AML fleet was approaching the end of its service life. It was decided that a replacement should be looked for, one of the vehicles look at was the Panhard VBL. The Irish Army had a long working relationship with Panhard over the years, and it was decided to purchase the VBL in the Light Recce role.

It was the decided that they would be purchased in batches. The VBLs that were in the first batch arriving the year 2000, fitted a standard ring MG mount, and as the requirements changed over the years the final batch which were fitted with Kongsberg PROTECTOR Remote Weapon Station were delivered in 2010.



This model depicts one of the vehicles from the last batch.

Stuff looks small beside E100 .What calibre is the second gun ?
Panhard looks cool enough to be an everyday SUV but would probably be a bit heavy on juice

Hi John,
The secondary armament on the E-100 was a 75mm gun...

The Back Story

In early 1973 the small fleet of DH Vampires T55's of the Irish Air Corps were approaching the end of their useful operational life after being in service since 1956 and a suitable replacement was required.

While there were a number of suitable types available the team tasked with selecting the possible replacements for the venerable Vampires drew up a short list of four aircraft types that met the criteria with the four candidates being, in no particular order;
-Cessna T-37C
-Fouga Magister
-Aermacchi MB.326
-BAC Jet Provost T.55

In June/July 1973 and at the invitation of each of the four manufactures a team of IAC aircrew and ground crew conducted an evaluation of each aircraft in operation with a number of European users, Jet Provost-RAF, T-37C-Força Aérea Portuguesa, Fouga Magister -Armée de l'air & Aermacchi MB.326-Aeronautica Militare.

With the necessary reports detailing the pro's & cons of each type submitted and including a recommendation on a winner for a Vampire replacement, the Government of the day decided that the next two seat jet trainer for the Irish Air Corps would be the Aermacchi MB.326 with the first of 7 deliveries due to commence in May 1974.

The first announcement in the aviation press on the selection of the MB.326 was made in Flight International magazine on 2 August 1973.
