A-7 Corsair repaint

Recommended Posts

Two A-7 Corsair jets of the Hellenic Air Force (including a cool Special Color) made a stop over at Aviano airbase on their way to RAF Fairford’s RIAT (Royal International Air Tattoo).

The Hellenic Air Force operates world’s last ageing but still much loved venerable Ling-Temco-Vought A-7 Corsair II jets.

The aircraft, flown by the 336 Mira (Squadron) “Olympos” belonging to the 116 Combat Wing from Araxos, will be phased-out in October this year.

For this reason the one at the RIAT 2014 at RAF Fairford could be the last overseas appearance before retirement. To celebrate this event, the Greek Air Force sent to the UK two “special” Corsairs: an A-7E in a black special livery with the famous “Fly Low – Hit Hard” motto and a TA-7C two seater Corsair that was recently painted with a new wrap-around camo.

      These manuals were one part of a training series put together by Jimmy Thach. There are various videos floating around the internet which match the titles of these manuals. Excellent stuff if you want to know how USN and USMC pilots flew and fought in the Pacific.

      Fictional ‘What if’ Royal New Zealand Air Force A-7 Corsair II Skins
       
       
       
      As requested in MAKO69’s topic (http://combatace.com/topic/82082-a-lot-of-what-if-ideas-for-the-moders/?do=findComment&comment=658905) here are my RNZAF A-7 re-skins.
       
       
       
      Fact: When the New Zealand Government selected the A-4K Skyhawk for the RNZAF in the late 60’s/ early 70’s the A-7 Corsair II was on the Air Force’s short list along with the F-4 and F-111. A modernised version of the A-7 was again considered in the late 80’s as an alternative to upgrading the RNZAF Skyhawks.
       
       
       
      You will need the stock Third Wire A-7D and A-7E_74 as well as the Mirage Factory A-7D_84 and A-7K_MF
       
       
       
      Instillation: As usual simply drop into your mods folder and allow it to override when prompted, none of the aircraft files will be changed just the skins added.

      On Oct. 17, the Hellenic Air Force organized a ceremony to celebrate the retirement of the last A-7 Corsair flying with 116 Combat Wing (116 PM) jets at Araxos airbase after 39 years of active service.
