Default A few questions

Hello All,
I've got a few questions for the SP folks:
1. Do all the SP birds have the radiator in the rear?
2. Do they all have CAT 3208's?
3. Do they all have ZF Tranamissions?
4. What's thier weight?
5. What's thier fuel capacity?
Thanks so much for helping a rookie out! - Tom

Not always noted, but they are on the edge of axle capacity, not much CCC. Woodies program not with standing.

Default Would your aircraft be in Bagram Afghanstan?

Hi Guys,
Like to read about the SP,s. They seem to be the right BB for me, need some storage space for aircraft tools and other stuff.
See some Navy planes based in Bagram, might it be yours?
Going back for my next 6 weeks in Bagram 01 Jul.
Just think the SP would be the right mix of room inside and storage space. Also being able to stay at public campgrounds would be nice.
Being an aircraft electronics/ AP mechanic, the controls for the ZF and Cat would not be to tough to figure out.
Fun reading on this site!

I've not observed that on mine. I'm loaded up pretty good for fulltiming with storage box on roof too. I'm 13,300 on the front with a 14,400 axle so 1,100 lbs to spare there. My drive was 21,600 on a 23,000 axle, so another 1,400 lbs for a total of 2,500 lbs spare capacity. I've since gotten rid of my motorcycle lift so I probably lost another 200 lbs off the rear.
