Without the benefit of large maneuvering areas, any attack on Singapore or its airspace has to be shut down immediately or the war is lost.

Tarangus and MPM announces the first test shots of of the forthcoming Saab 37 Viggen in 1/48 scale! “The Viggen is an iconic aircraft which has been somewhat neglected from a modeling perspective.
