A long time ago, I built an Israeli Mirage III from the Matchbox kit and did a kit bash of a Argentinian Dagger from a kit I don’t remember.  I don’t have either anymore.  Therefore I’d like to get this kit when it comes out.

Looks like the Israelis just shot down a Syrian warplane.  The article doesn’t say it but I am guessing it was an Su-25.

I wonder what this is all about.  I suspect the story is correct and it WASN’T an Israeli IRBM.  But, what was it?
