    Re: Radar and the TBM/TBF, particularly TBM-3. I can find lots of info on TBM-3D/-3E with APS-4 radar, etc. There is even some info on the -3J (all-weather) version. However, all that I can find about the TBM-3H simply states that it was "a version with special surface search radar." Does anyone have any photos or information on this particular model? Were there just a handful made? What was the "special" surfaced search radar? Inquiring minds want to know. Thanks to all.

    I have nine books on the TBM and no mention of an H. A list of the variants made, again no mention of H...
