Volker,

Could you tell me the year range for the mod 2 and mod 3 bombs when they were in service.

That is because my filing system is in terms of aircraft models and their year in service.

 

I'll try looking for them.

Yan

The first photo in your first post appears in a book entitled: US Marine Corps F-4 Phantom II Units of the Vietnam War. Osprey Combat Aircraft 94

not much details mentioned in that book.
