AS.30, interesting shot. Only served with the Marineflieger until the late 1970s short time before being replaced by Kormoran ( which itself was derived from another Nord project, AS.34 ).

lots of red glare but no rockets, just gunfire by this Belarus Frogfoot.

Went to war in Vietnam in 1966! M22 armament system with six AGM-22 missiles ( Nord SS.11 ). Like the British with Milan in the Falklands, the US Army primarily used it for bunker-busting and anti-sniping.

On a similar scale, here's a Bofors Bantam launch from SAAB Supporter.

Yes. AFAIK, the AMX cannot launch AIM-7s

Landing-gear still cycling and AMX reversed left-right would seem to suggest so :) Wonder why he didn't just mirror-flip the missiles?

Bonus Internet Points to anyone who can find a photo of an AMX firing anything, they seem shy.

The original photo is on the AMX website @ Wikipedia.
