Improved Pilot Figure

本製品(HA3844)に同梱されるパイロットフィギュアです。 以前のものより造形が良くなっています。 良い出来ですが、欲を言えばよりシャープな造形が欲しいところです。

This is a pilot figure included in this product (HA3844). This is better than the formoer one in the molding. That's good, but I wish it is more sharpness molding.

about real plane

The 18th Aggressor Squadron

第18アグレッサー飛行隊の前身はF-16ブロック40を装備する第18戦闘飛行隊でした。 2006年当時、アラスカ州周辺で行われていた大規模軍事演習「コープ・サンダー」が「レッド・フラッグ・アラスカ」へと名称が変更になることを受け、在韓米軍で同じくF-16を運用していた第35戦闘飛行隊および第80戦闘飛行隊からブロック30の機体を受領し、第18アグレッサー飛行隊として再編されました。 同隊はレッドフラッグ・アラスカでのアグレッサー任務だけに限らず、太平洋・アジア地域に展開する米軍部隊に対しても教導任務を行っています。

The predecessor of the 18th aggressor squadron was the 18th fighting squadron equipped with the F-16 block 40. In 2006, the large military exercise "Cope Thunder" which had been done around Alaska State changed the name to "Red Flag Alaska". At the same time, the 18th fighter squdron received F-16 Block 30 from the 35th and 80th fighter squadron in Koria, and was reorganized as the 18th aggressor squadron. The missions of this squdron are not only the aggressor training at Red Flag Alaska but also instructions of tactical training for the U.S. military forces deployed in the Pacific / Asia region.
