#1 Just when you think the Tigers are down, they come up with something like this. Of course, they lost both planes, so they only have 1 left, if that. They'll trumpet it as a victory even though it was a last-gasp spasm like Operation Bodenplatte.

#3 No, the Tiger terrorists legally bought several light planes in the 1980s from the Europeans. They have lost most of them in the past two decades and have NO good sources for replacing them, since the LTTE is now internationally recognized as a terrorist group.
