Outline of a four-engined jet with swept wings to the left, and a single-engined delta wing jet to the right. 707/KC-135 and Mirage III/V?

If so, I'd guess:

French Air Force or RAAF or Israeli?

Hmm, none of my SSI experts can NOT ID this.. Try looking at the Norway-Sweden_Denmark patches, as what most of the guys say the logo is of a French jet or a Sweden Mirage or a SAAB made,thats all what I have gotten for info

Norway, Sweden, and Denmark did not fly pure delta wings, however; even the Draken was a double-delta, which the half-silhouette to the right is not. It looks more like a stylized Mirage II/V (or maybe a Nesher/Kfir, absent canards).

The half-silhouette to the left looks like a four-engined jet transport - 707 or DC-8 analogue. Of course, military DC-8s are very few. So, what Cold War era air forces flew delta-winged fighters and 707-based transports or tankers or etc?

France, Israel, Australia ... can't think of another.
