    Some closup Pics of T129. My own clicks



    A warning Just under the optronics Ball at the Nose of the Helicopter. You see the Gun's bullet feed mechanism on the right. The optronics ball can be seen facing downwards.
    [MENTION=4322]T-123456[/MENTION] what does "Tehlike" means? I saw this and "Dikket" written on many parts of the T129

    An instructional sign at the back of T-129. It summarizes some maintenance instruction about the tail rotor gear Box.
    I think the little round Glass port is a means of checking Gearbox oil.

    Crew's emergency escape is based on some sort of Explosive devices and warning displayed. Also note the Nitrogen filling port,which i guess is for Filling Nitrogen in the shock absorbers of Landing gear. No Idea what "Static port" means.
    Also note the Ammunition box for loading Gun munition.

    For sideways and forward speed,the helicopter uses instrument on that boom sticking on the side

    Infra red Emitter. To distract IR based heat seeking missiles. It emits IR at different frequencies.
    The transparent Bulb like structure in the middle.

    Avionics bay situated on the port side.Similar bay exists on starboard side. Probably one for each pilot station.

    Two flair dispensers on each side. facing upwards/backwards and facing Downwards/Forward.
    Looks like the helicopter has two flare dispensers on port side and one on starboard.

    Avionics ball and gun can face in different directions. This option s not available in Cobra gunships and many older Russian Gunship helicopters,where Avionics ball and Guns are mounted on same gear assembly and have to face the same way.

    Scissor shaped wire cutter situated on the nose above the gun.

    These are not antennae for radios like most people believe. They are part of the Wire Strike Protection System (WSPS). The WSPS is made up of several components to protect the helicopter from high wire strikes. It was developed because of the increased risk of wire strikes while flying at NOE altitudes. If a helicopter hits a power line (Telephone line, electrical line, guy wire for a tower, or any other wire obstacle), the rotor system may become entangled with the wire, and catastrophic failure of the rotor system could lead to total destruction of the aircraft.
