Looking at the Updated Korat RTAFB recently posted reminded me of something I have been wanting since I read When Thunder Rolled. Could someone make a relatively accurate static terrain object of the dog Rosco, 388th Tactical Fighter Wing mascot and honorary base commander, and the necessary data in the Targets and Types INI files for him to appear outside the Korat RTAFB Officers Club from May 1966 to September 12th, 1975.

Below are links to some sites with photos, a bit of film, and info about Rosco for modeling and skinning reference.

The Vietnam War Years of Korat Royal Thai Air Base - Roscoe - Photos and stories about the dog who "commanded" an Air Base from those who raised Roscoe, to those who encountered Roscoe, to those who have guarded his legacy and legend!

Robert W. Smith - autobiography - Limited Weapons, Assured Defeat Chapter 5 - Limited Weapons, Assured Defeat, 13 October: Rosco photo.

Find a grave - Roscoe Dog (1965-1975)

There is film of Roscoe in the video below, the link should have the correct time set, if not then he appears from time index 26:36 to 27:09, about 33 seconds in total.
