spare parts, special tools and equipment for maintenance plus maintanance

In its late military life the aircraft was equipped with VHF/UHF
Com, VOR, ILS, ADF, TACAN and IFF/SIF. After installation of the
NATO TACAN system the rear part of the canopy was as part of a standard
procedure painted white to protect the system from the sun. In OY-FGA
the instrument panels for VHF/UHF Com, VOR, ILS, ADF, TACAN are
retained in the rear cockpit. The front cockpit is equipped with
VHF Com, VOR/ILS, GPS with moving map and transponder mode C. The
gun sight is removed but all other military cockpit interface including
armament control panels are retained. No change has been made in
the cockpit layout except for the addition of colour markings on
airspeed indicators, mach meter and engine instruments plus installation
of a G-meter and a VOR/ILS repeater in the rear cockpit.
