First of all, this is not another topic focused on one aircraft...this is simply my topic about recent works on old good SLUF. As recently I was absolutely occupied on work with the ODS30 team I neglected my Vietnam era mod. Then when ODS 30 cam out...I figured out I need to re-work my own Vietnam mod. So just tweak here and there...ended up with the whole Navy A-7 Corsair deployment in Vietnam War.

Some squadrons had tendencies to slightly change paint markings, some squadrons remain pattern for each tour of duty. Nevertheless, very colorful considering it was combat deployment.  But things were different back then.

This is still WIP..but more or less it is nearly finished.

Thanks.

And answers to all your questions are - yes. 

Squadrons non-involved in Vietnam War from the Atlantic and  Pacific fleet are in progress now. Although not so extensive.
