Product Description

Hobby Master  Mitsubishi T-2 JASDF CCV Experimental Test Bed  Gifu AB 1989  1/72 scale diecast metal and plastic parts. Fully assembled.  HA3404

The Mitsubishi T-2 is a two-engined two-seat jet trainer manufactured by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and was operated by the Japan Air Self Defense Force from 1975 – 2006. The flight instructor sat behind the student in a raised seat that allowed him to visually monitor the student’s actions. There was a windblast screen between them that created separate clamshell canopies for each person. T-2s were also used by a dedicated Aggressor Squadrons until they were replaced by F-15 Eagle.
 
The Mitsubishi T-2 was chosen by the Technical Research and Development Institute (TRDI) of the Japan Defense Agency to test new technology. The aircraft selected was the third T-2 manufactured; serial 29-5103 c/n 003. It would be the test bed for the CCV (Control Configuration Vehicle) studies. Fixed canards were mounted on the intakes just in front of the wings with a movable canard under the fuselage. The objective was to study airflow to see if such a configuration could improve maneuverability.
