    Yes, that's what i mean. Looks like 3 different types. Also, it's not a full load. Does that mean they are posing on the craft after battle, minus the weapons that did the deed.
    Also, excellent pic TURDAD, on the F5. Love the F5. Too bad the F20 didn't go far.

    How does a pilot loot?
    His patch shows as a refueler.

    Greetings Poppy,

    in Armenian and Assyrian languages, names are spelled diffrenet with Persian and English,

    for example:

    Persian: Mokhtar
    Armenian: Mekhitar
    Assyrian: Mekhter

    Persian: Teymoor
    Armenian: Timout
    Assyrian: Timor

    and Looter is what Armenians say to "Lothar"

    Target: Saddam Hossein



    In November of 1982, The IRIAF’s Office of Operations Intelligence had issued an alert NoTAM indicating that Saddam Hossein and/or his high ranking officers will be inspecting the front lines soon. High numbers of deceptive attacks by fighters were expected as diversionary actions during the assessment of the Iraqi commanders
    In the morning of November 20th, 1982, Capt. F. AliMazandarani and WSO Lt. Reza Tahmasebi took off from Esfahan’s 8th TAB for west of Ahvaz known as 3rdCAP area. That day Iraq had several fighters maneuvering in the area; hence, prompting the F-14 crew to be extra vigilant having the recent alert in mind. As usual, the crew locked on to many enemy targets forcing them to return as the F-14 began patrolling closer to the border
    During one of these encounters, the F-14 identified several enemy targets and locked on to one of them; however, the enemy fighter flying at 2,000-3,000ft above the ground at a speed of 400-450Kts did not return and continued flying towards the border. As the F-14 was also getting close to the front lines, the crew fired its Phoenix missile at under 20NM and 5-10 seconds later fired another Phoenix missile towards a second target, splashing them both which was confirmed visually, by the F-14 radar and the ground radar, as the rest of the fighters turned away.
    [SIZE=10.5pt]Upon returning to base, Capt. F. AliMazandarani was debriefed and reprimanded for firing at targets inside Iraqi territory[1][/SIZE]. His personnel file showed a 48hr disciplinary detention and the credit in shooting down the two enemy fighters was expunged from his file despite his argument regarding the alert message and enemy fighters’ continuous advance towards the border as well as the downed fighters being technically inside Iranian occupied territory
    [SIZE=10.5pt]The incident remained muted and classified until the documentary of Tomcat Fights[2][/SIZE] was being produced and statistics given in the book “Iranian F-14 Tomcat Units in Combat” by Tom Cooper and Farzad Bishop were being cross checked with IRIAF data. Although much of the information provided by the book is inaccurate, one of the confirmed statistics however is the two uncredited kills of AliMazandarani

    [​IMG]

    One of the Tomcat Fights’ consultants was Brig. Gen. Fazlollah Javidnia who was in contact with Tom Cooper, cross checking the data collected by him. During one of the communications as they went through their lists and Brig. Gen. Javidnia began invalidating many of the claims, they reached an incident in which Tom Cooper insisted of its credibility emphasizing that his source was the Iraqi helicopter pilot carrying Saddam’s generals, presumably Gen. Adnan Kheirollah, Gen. Maher Abdul Rashid and others

    The pilot explained how he was flying towards the front line while escorted by a pair of MIG-21s & MIG-23s when he saw a burning MiG-23 fall down his left side and moments later a second MiG-23 went down on the right side of his helicopter. Not understanding what was happening as they were still far from the front line for the fighters to be shot down by enemy AAA or SAM; he immediately turned around flying extremely low towards the rear of the battle lines, taking the generals to safety

    Gen. Javidnia went through the IRIAF documents and found out that the date corresponded with AliMazandarani’s CAP mission on that day and recalled the incident as he was the squadron’s scheduling officer at the time. After several interviews by IRIAF officials with Tom Cooper, in 2013 the IRIAF’s Study & Research Center officially registered the kills in the name of Capt. Fereidoun AliMazandarani & WSO the late Lt. Reza Tahmasebi after it had been muted for over 30 years

    As a result, Colonel Fereidoun AliMazandarani’s official and confirmed kills has been revised to eleven kills as of 2013, eight enemy fighters by the Phoenix missile, two during dogfight using the F-14 M61-A1 20mm cannon and one by the adapted MIM-23 Hawk missile named Sedjeel as well as five indirect kills because of enemy fighter crashes


    [SIZE=10pt][1][/SIZE][SIZE=8pt]The IRIAF had issued a mandate six months after the war had broken out that all enemy fighters must be fired upon inside Iranian territory due[/SIZE]​
    [SIZE=8pt]to limited quantity of Phoenix missiles as well as being able to confirm the kills and/or capture the pilot.[/SIZE]​


    [SIZE=10pt][2][/SIZE][SIZE=8pt]Tomcat Fights documentary series was aired for the first time on Press TV in August of 2012.[/SIZE]​
