    Regards to post #14, This is a B model and I think it is a Warlord from the 123rd CAB, Americal Division.

    Pic #17 is the B Model with the TOW system that was under evaluation for use on Cobras. I think there were three equipped like this. During the Easter invasion in 1972, they were loaded up and shipped to Pleiku where they stopped an armored invasion cold.

    Pic #18, the Air Force mounted a minigun in the doors, my cousin flew one. I told him it was the best weapon the AF had, getting the main armament out of the hands of the pilots.

    I've been doing well guys, thanks for asking. I completed a chronological account of the evacuation of Kham Duc that I posted on another site, and from that I was asked to do research for a book being written on the same subject. We left North Carolina and now live in Pennsylvania from the spring until Jan when we go to Charleston, South Carolina until it gets hot and humid. We have kids and grandkids in both places.

    I have found another example of RW's post and the images to that post were via Photofuckit I used the image url and managed to recover some of the photos but as you would expect form Photofuckit that didnt work every time. At least some have been recovered for now, I will attempt it again another day.

    Why PB make things so hard for people I have no idea :).
