Looks like the front of the 4 rocket launch rails sticking out the front of the wing.

Rocket rails...why do they look like cannons? Cannons on all series II Tempests (nearly all but 100 were sereies II) were flush mounted with the leading edge of the wing.

Oddly enough, when the original screenshots of the Tempest surfaced, the exact same topic was born.

Exactly!! I just wanted to check which SOB again finds joy in surfacing several years old irrelevant threads... Then I thought the dates of posts must be fubar.

TBH I'm still not quite sure what's going on. It's like a deja vu. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
