Portugal AF C-295MPA With New Pods.

Wed Jul 17, 2013 5:59 pm

Hi,

I have photographed a Portugal AF C-295MPA Persuader (16710) with this new pods attached to both fuselage sides.

I would like some info about this pods. I think they are ESM/ELINT pods, but I am not sure.

All opinion or advise is welcome.



Regards
