Nope. Cut the engine number to half of DC-3s and across the pond and you are closer...

I want to emphasize that the key to this question is technical in it's nature. What "brands" of equipment might aeroplane use ?? ...maybe it is about motive power :wink:

Correct.

The "brands" are:

1) Rolls-Royce (used post-war by Spanish)
2) Junkers (used post-war by Czechs)

...and the highly esteemed but not quite so glamorous as first one is ofcourse Daimler-Benz

...and the nick-name "mule".

Well done, it is your turn again.

Correct!

My source gives the name "Stoikij", but I think were talking about the same ship.

Your turn Kocjo.

I have info that 82. Armour Brigade (Sirian) was equipped wit T-72 and T-62. I'm thinking of battle of Sultan Jakub, where Israely forces destroyed 11 T-72 and 13 T-62 and demaged at least once more tanks.

Your turn!
