Dassault MD.450 Ouragan - El Salvador

MD.450
Serial: 714
Unit: FAS

Later during their careers with FAS, most of surviving Ouragans have had their wing-timp tanks removed and were partially repainted: brown of the USAF-style 'SEA'-camouflage pattern was replaced by dark green and serials applied in different style ('Elephant' font). In early 1981, one of these venerable fighters intercepted a light transport carrying arms and ammunition for rebels, and shot it down, scoring the first air-to-air kill of this war. Additional similar encounters followed, but their results remain unknown. Contrary to some reports, FAS Ouragans were never armed with Israeli-made Shafrir Mk.2 air-to-air missiles. Instead, their main weapons - aside from four 30mm cannons - became unguided rockets, foremost US-made 19x2.75in and SNIA BPD HL-7-80 rocket launchers (the later usually carried in pair, on an adapter under the outboard underwing pylon).
