An in depth history of a fascinating military model , the Norwegian Heuer 1550 SG Luftforsvaret .



good article, but the "70's" photo of the P3 Orion over a Russian submarine - the submarine appears to be an "Akula" class submarine entered service in 1986, someone on here is an ex submariner, could be @Biker? they could possibly elucidate more?

The top picture from the Orion looks like one of the older Tango class hunter/killer boats, this would have been one of their diesel offerings.

The Tangos, when dived were utter pigs to find as they were quiet and could dive deep as the pressure hull was titanium, as they got older they got noisier and that was the only way could find them.

The second picture shows the P3 flying over an Alpha (Akula) class nuclear powered submarine.  The Akulas are still in service today.
