VMFA-531 Mission Pack IV, for Wings Over Vietnam (WOV)
This pack covers missions flown by Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 531 (VMFA-531) between the dates of April 25 through April 27, 1965. Where possible I have tried to keep as close as possible to the historical write-up of Mike Wanamaker and Lee R. De haven, given the constraints of the publicly available aircraft and ground objects in WOV. Where necessary, certain bespoke ground objects and pre-requisites are used.
This mod has been updated on request to remove direct links to any Capun and A-team prerequisite models. Instead please contact Capun for access - details enclosed.
