You make a good point. There's also some combat footage of Taliban on top of a cliff shooting a Dushka on a tripod down onto a NATO convoy in a valley. A model of that would be awesome, but unfortunately this one points up, just as the Brittannia one.

no problem with this one to point down, gunner and gun are seperate and the gun ist 3 parts
perhaps i get a second model for shooting down into canyons :ph34r:

but up or down, i saw french footage from the 80s taken in the panshir valley and the mujahideen there happily blazed away at any elevation ;)
