Today, a video is published for a Syrian Air An-26 carrying the serial YK-ANC about to land in Hama AFB. The strange thing I noticed in this transporter is the two pods -as mentioned above- suspending from the fuselage.
This is not the first time to see these pods fitted to the Syrian An-26's, during the 'Live Fire Maneuvers' a photo for this aircraft showed the same pods, also, a very clear shot for the same YK-ANC was flying over Lattakia clearly showing them as well.
I spent an hour 'googling' trying to identify this pod but failed, are they camera pods for recon? weather surveillance equipment? any idea?
