This resin and photo etch set from Eduard is part of the Brassin series and is available directly from Eduard Model AccessoriesThis set includes one Sniper ATP Advanced Targeting Pod in 1/32 scale.

The Lockheed Martin Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod is a single, lightweight targeting pod with much lower aerodynamic drag than the systems it replaces. Its image processing allows aircrews to detect, identify and engage tactical-size targets outside the range of most enemy air defenses, giving it a crucial role in the destruction of enemy air defense missions. The pod's FLIR allows observation and tracking through smoke and clouds, and in low light / no light conditions. It also supports urban engagements beyond jet noise range for counter-insurgency operations. It offers a 3-5X increase in detection range over the older LANTIRN system, and is currently flying on U.S. Air Force and multinational F-16, F-15, B-1B, CF-18, Harrier, A-10, B-52 and Tornado aircraft in service with USA, Norway, Oman, Poland, Pakistan, Singapore, Canada, Belgium, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Thailand.
