Hi Gang,
it might be a long shot, but does anybody know what type of radios used in USAF JTAC. I saw some JTAC HMMWV at Grafenwöhr with lots of radios in the back.

I guess Harris AN/PRC-117G is an option


vehicular kit :



The AN/GRC-206 is an older configuration (maybe too old, considering your request ) but it matches some pics I've seen showing Air Force M1145 setup :

Hi Frenchy,
that pics of the AN/GRC-206 is very close. I saw the array on an M1165. Definitly no Harris Falcon. Now I have a start for googling.
