For the first time in many years, we are offering the E-3 Sentry on a scale of 1:500 from new tools and moulds. In the new development, we had in mind not only the previous E-3A variant, which is in service with NATO and the US armed forces, but also the E-3F variant, as used by France, as well as the E-3D version – or AEW.1 as it is called in Great Britain. In addition to a new fuselage, the CFM turbofan engines required for the D and F variants have been redesigned, and other details have been added. The British variant in particular has additional eye-catching sensor containers at the wing tips as well as an air refueling nozzle above the cockpit. Seven E-3D Sentry entered service with the Royal Air Force in 1991 and were immediately used to support air operations during the first Gulf War. The British AEW.1, more precisely our original with the registration ZH101, flew their last mission over Iraq in 2021 as part of Operation Shader to combat ISIS. The aircraft of the 8 Squadron had been transferred to the Akrotiri air base in Cyprus, from where it took on valuable reconnaissance and command tasks for the ground and naval units.
