Still working on Spudknocker's Iran-Iraq campaign with an imporved initial OOB

The Iran units are ok, but the iraqi units are still bugged : very few fighters encountered, wrong loadouts, only "tactical reconnaissance" missions proposed ...

Tests are a nice opportunity for screenshots:

Flying some CAS

You should look for a place to land right after takeoff or have a personal refueler on the way to your targets. ;)

VSF Squadron/ VA Squadron detachment A-4B and A-4C Skyhawks.

VSF Squadrons and VA Squadron detachments were assigned to small ASW carriers for air defense but with the escalation of the Vietnam war they returned to the attack role. VA-34 from the USS Essex actually flew a CAP/ escort mission during the Bay of Pigs invasion with the intention of protecting the Rebal A-26 Invaders but due to a timing cock up were an hour late and missed engaging the Cuban T-33A fighters. VA-93 painted fake  black radar-domes and tail RWR receivers during one of their detachments.

I modified some of Wrench's decals along with Nyghtfall's latest templates.

Cool story and nice skins, didn't knew about that A4 role, where did you read about the Cuba part? I found this long long ago.

With the upgraded Udaloy I & Slava ships by @WhiteBoySamurai and @KJakker in the Kuril reinforcement fleet, it now takes a lot of ASM-3s to sink one of these ships.  But I'd rather have a real warship to have to engage than not.

Cool picture! I have done a VA-34 A-4B skin with the marking removed based on the only photo I can find of VA-34 in Cuba in 1961. 

If you google Bay of Pigs and VA-34 or Skyhawk etc the story about the botched Escort mission comes up in a few placed eg https://www.history.com/news/5-things-you-might-not-know-about-the-bay-of-pigs-invasion scroll down to #3.

Hard to see in the screenshot but the over sprayed markings are a darker fresher grey

Thanks for the link, love to learn this curious facts about aviation history.

Maybe the drawing I posted is a bit colorized in order to be more attractive? On the drawing you can see the VA-34 markings on the tail not completely covered, so the blue is still visible, same for black numbers in the nose, and even the canopy is painted blue! Also the grey used is much darker so it gives the impression of being painted more crudely lol.

I really like the look of the markings in the drawing! Might not be the most likely rendition but it looks cool...

Pappychksix,

You're right.  It is your skin.  I intended to credit you and thought I had, but it seems to have fallen through the cracks... in my brain.

I apologize.  I also love this skin.  That's why I used it.

Thanks for the skin and the correction.
