airlistbox[edit]

[minor change] I took the {{airlistbox}} outta the page because with the table it was kind of poorly juxtaposed. i'd be tickled if somebody would fix that for me. Avriette 17:29, 12 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Newspeak[edit]

What does "designed for close air support, prohibition, and forceful prevention" mean? -- Jeandré, 2006-07-15t18:58z

Beats me. I've removed it, in the hope that anyone replacing it will use actual English phrases to explain the meaning. -- Rogerborg 15:05, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

Use by Luftwaffe[edit]

Unregistered IP had posted this:

Other nations: Luftwaffe F-4 Phantom II only, NOT TORNADO

at the bottom of the article. Someone knowledgable about this sort of thing should verify and, if confirmed, incorporate the correction properly. TeraBlight 22:00, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

Is there any point at all in listing what aircraft in other countries are carrying the AGM-65? T96 grh (talk) 20:16, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

it say Philippines uses this on f-16 when if fact we dont have f-16s —Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.96.187.236 (talk) 08:18, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Although it correctly identifies New Zealand Navy as a current operator, it has been left off (not coloured blue) on the map. 1.129.96.47 (talk) 22:39, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

AGM-65[edit]

[anyone else notice...] AGM65 sucessfully redirects here, but AGM-65 does not, despite containing the correct command? the page just stalls and nothing comes up!? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 84.9.108.74 (talkcontribs).

Seems to work OK for me. I run IE7 on WinXPH. - BillCJ 20:37, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
Works for me using Firefox on Ubuntu. -- Jeandré, 2007-01-06t00:03z
tested it on my other machine running firefox on fedora - works fine; but running IE6 on Win98SE, it doesn't redirect. must be some strange quirk. :¬/ —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 84.9.108.74 (talkcontribs) 2007-01-06t00:42:35z.

Photograph not right?[edit]

AGM-65 M-48 pre impact.jpg
AGM-65 M-48 post impact.jpg
An AGM-65 test-fired against an M-48 tank (1978)

In the two pictures purportedly showing a Maverick striking an M48 tank, the lower photo is definitely not by the same camera nor is the tank the same. The upper picture is from the front right quarter while the lower picture is directly from the side and the camera in the lower picture is much lower down than in the upper one. The tank in the lower picture also looks more like an M60 A3 with its turret turned rearwards -- notice the long overhang at the back of the turret and the flying object in the air, which looks a lot like an M60's machine gun turret.--Death Bredon (talk) 18:29, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

You are right, Death Bredon. I add the images at the right side, here, and I complete your comment: in addition of your observation, it must pointed out that in the Commons image database the first image is dated 1978 and the second is dated 1988. If so, they can not correspond to the same tank and missile... less than one of the two indicated dates is mistaken. Even both photos dates, as indicated in their Commons pages, could be mistaken. Also, both photos could be from 1978, both from 1988... or even both indicated years could be mistaken. In any case, it is obvious that there's a loud mistake somewhere.

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:
