As far as I see it is already included in the mega folder
That's an old image, from before December, one of the original images from when the phone first came out in October. Notice the date in the filename. August 17, 2021 (the original images that came on the phone when delivered were from August)

There should be a new update in a couple of weeks though.

I really should of downloaded the images I did not have when google stopped the update. But I really was not expecting a remove all evidence type of action.

Then there the whole lawsuit cease and desist for p6p.

I am in usa so only did the usa images.

If I'm not mistaken, then you can still download the December 2021 images directly from Google's servers. Only the listing has been edited, but the files aren't physically removed till date.
You're absolutely correct, thank you! They only have three of the images linked to on that site. I think the fourth (AU) was added to Google's page later. I'll add the official links to the OP, and duplicate copies of anything I didn't already have.

I'll try and remember to upload the a4 OTA Friday night. Not by my pc till then to get the file.
As per @SkandaH's post above, I'm downloading the A4 OTA directly from Google's servers, so you don't need to go to any trouble. I greatly appreciate the offer!

Wish I had done the same for oriole.
Take a look at @SkandaH's link below. It has all the original Google links (except the A5 for AU) for the December images and they still work.

Edit: Found the A5 links https://9to5google.com/2021/12/15/pixel-december-21-security-patch/.

Awesome, thank you again! Monday is just barely "late" January, but it's better for companies to prepare us for the worst and then surprise us with good news.

Good news. Interesting that they are releasing it on a U.S. federal holiday. Usually they don't release on a holiday but wait until the day or few after. Maybe MLK Day doesn't fall on their list of holidays, lol.
I'm certainly off Monday :D - of course I'm "off" everyday. They'll probably wait until 1PM ET and announce that because of the holiday there'll be a 24 hour delay. No matter to me. Hurry up and wait! ;)

    No one should need these December images anymore. There is a single January update available now - 12.0.0 (SQ1D.220105.007, Jan 2022). It doesn't specify if it's a consolidated image to replace all the separate images, as Google usually or always does eventually for each Pixel, or if they'll release additional images.

    It's available at the usual place: https://developers.google.com/android/images#raven



    OLD:
    The December full firmware and OTA zips have finally been removed from https://developers.google.com/android/images#raven and https://developers.google.com/android/ota#raven.

    NEW - official download links for the images and OTAs still exist
    If I'm not mistaken, then you can still download the December 2021 images directly from Google's servers. Only the listing has been edited, but the files aren't physically removed till date.
    Note, I found the SQ1D.211205.016.A5 (AU) official direct Google links here.

    I and others are uploading them to make them available here for anyone who wants or needs them.

    Here there be dragons. 🐉 I am not responsible for anything at all. 😹

    I highly encourage everyone who downloads full firmware zips to check that the hash matches what you download, especially when dealing with unofficial downloads such as this, but even when official. You never know when a piece of nasty malware is going to infiltrate a site and modify the files, giving you an instant trojan when you flash this, and it might not be known about for months or longer.

    Thanks to @SkandaH for making me aware that the official Google download links still work.

    Thanks to @fards for offering to upload the A4 OTA

    Dumb question, how would I know which of the Raven's to sideload?
    By whatever area you use a carrier in. If the United States, you would use the .017. Below is the full list of the December factory images that were available. I don't have any of the December OTAs, only the full factory image for US Carriers (.017) and the the one for UK, IE, FR, DE (.016.A4).

    A couple of users are going to get me another full factory image I don't have yet, and a couple of the OTAs.
