Your headline is bad and you should feel bad.

I'm sure it's much better and cheaper than what they could purchase from Russia, good for them.

What "expensive" Russian planes might look like.


Good for them, all African. Does it have a fro?

Let's just say, the AHRLAC isn't going to be putting the fear of god into anyone...

I guess to get a green you just have to use direct Family Guy quotes that have nothing to do with the article?

I like how the All African plane has a Canadian engine. So basically the important piece isn't African, go figure.

Strangely similar to an OV-10...

It's a recon airplane... they tend not to frighten anybody excepting those who understand that what the recon airplane sees now will likely get shot at in short order.

Good for them, but unfortunately they are getting this thing to market just as UAVs like the Predator are making such aircraft unnecessary and obsolete, and doing so at a comparable or lower cost. No point in putting a live human (whose training costs money) up there in the air to serve as a target if you don't have to.

No one really fears those things. It's more of yelling at someone to get the MANPADS SAM and shoot it down before it finishes calling the strike in. Shoot it and vacate the area quickly. Now Attack Helicopters, those farkers are scary. They poke that radar mast over the trees and a second later you're eating a pod worth of rockets. Do not want.

That's nothing. They're well on their way to having a functioning space program -

African space research: Dreaming of a manned shuttle

Which isn't to say they haven't run into their fair share of problems..

"A lack of local facilities is hampering the project and I asked Chris how he plans to simulate zero gravity, for example, in Kampala.

"Easy" he said. "I've got a jet engine on order so I'm planning to build a tunnel, put the engine at one end and when I throw a guy in he'll float..."

Y'know, the way Family Guy takes random anecdotes that have nothing to do with the current plot of an episode?

No, that's an Opa-Opa from the Sega game Phantasy Zone.

Reminds me of the marine assault helicopter/plane in Avatar.

It looks like they've managed to create a $10,000,000 ultralight kit plane.
