A W116 is for everyone!
« on: 03 September 2018, 04:42 PM »
My avatar photo, the weaponized W116 belonging to Walter Scheel, former German PM, during the RAF terrorist heydays in the 70's.

The second photo shows the anti-terrorist squad during training.

Third photo shows  possible terrorist being arrested after a chase.

Impressive. The car at the end with the guy being arrested copped a bit of unfortunate damage though.

I hope you mean the Red Army Faction and not the Royal Air Force.

oops, forgot about them uniformed ones in the UK. I was talking about the old-skool terrorists in Germany, without the uniforms ;)

Rote Armee Fraktion I thought it might translate to something else but it is RAF and they were always known as that.
