"Business Side of A Stinger"

stinger with 20mm on ramp

4 Nov, 1972, Nakhon Phanom, Royal Thai Air Force Base, Thailand
- Another nice shot of a Stinger 830. This photo shows the two 20 millimeter cannons, four 7.62 mini guns, Radar, and the Illuminator. Note the straps hanging inside the aircraft and across the opening. These were the "monkey straps" to keep the gunner from falling out while scanning for Triple-A.
