  1. recently declassified photos of secret operation over Bilya. Until a few years ago, it was stated that COL Ted Masters had been released from internment by the Bilyans after intense negotiating..... (a request someone has been telling me about for a while now)
  2. A-10 Hog sites?

    you know, joe baughers is great for what came off the factory floor, what contracts got cancelled and what crashed. but save for small batch high profile cases (like the B-1B) it tends to be counter productive on the where they were stationed.
  3. cant find a good usable decal for this units planes? fine, i'll make my own decals. but with blackjack. and hookers
  4. hmmmm, I better get that request in the the AFHRA soon then on the units for Provide Comfort. they are thorough, but slower than molasses poured uphill in February Reserve units in Deny Flight too. i have a few down, but they rotated through for about two months at a time and that took place over two and a half years time. Its why the last release was "Part 1:"
  5. Viper Pit

    not really a like, but theres not a YOUCH! button so...
  6. Viper Pit

    you and me really need to talk id say you got the newer markings and i've got the older ones, except i did do both since there was a little over a year seperation between the two styles also, theres new ADFs coming at months end. B model and A model w/o the tractor beam that was on what i originally worked with did you put your Buccaneer head on skin or as tga? frankly, i should have gone tga myself, it was a PITA gettin him squared up on each side and each aircraft! (dammit, gotta fix that rescue mark on the B. number 93 on the list now.....)
  7. A-10 Hog sites?

    thank you. first one is good for where they are, but i need a where they've been. especially with the big chunk that were retired in the drawdown of the 90s. the second one is not of much use to me --------------------------- i appreciate any replies, but im afraid it may be spitballing here. not to many sites out there have comprehensive histories on each (or even most of) the airframes across a production run. i got really spoiled by f-16.net and was hoping the Hog might have something similar
  8. Viper Pit

    these lil sonsabitches been hard to pin down. still cant find the squadron bird
  9. Anyone know a good site to get unit and serial info on the A-10? As im working through my F-16 project, keep thinking of doing more whole wing releases like i did with the 23d Wing. but the other wings arent as well documented as the one that carries the Flying Tigers heritage im looking for something like f-16.net. its proven to be a godsend for the Viper project and there isnt too much reading between the lines on aircraft assignments.
  10. might i suggest some reading for the next few nights https://combatace.com/forums/forum/268-thirdwire-strike-fighters-2-series-knowledge-base/ general knowledge base of how to mod stuff in here https://combatace.com/forums/forum/270-thirdwire-strike-fighters-2-series-mods-skinning-discussion/ mods and skinng threads. lots of tips as people discuss what theyve made or are working on https://combatace.com/forums/forum/269-thirdwire-strike-fighters-2-series-general-discussion/ as it says. general discussion 90% of what youve been asking is discussed somewhere in these forums. i wont say use the search function like others will, i think itts a pita myself but i do try to go cruising through pages and past work before posting about how to make the wheel again.
  11. yeah well funk him said the guy with a rather unique signature.......
  12. took me twenty minutes, all images from Google
  13. parts probably. the Marines have caught hell when they opted out of the Super Bug, preferring to wait on F-35B. Problem is, theyve waited much longer than anticipated and their old Hornets are wearing out. Not to mention theyve used up nearly all the parts for the C/D fleet (allegedly raiding museums for parts to keep operational aircraft flying) Hell, they even took the few F/A-18As left in the desert and upgraded them to A++ standard, almost to C. So im not suprised at all that they want them. probably keep the Ds and a couple of C flying and turn the rest to parts bins.
  14. View File Vipers Over Bosnia Pt 1: USAFE F-16C/D Operation Deny Flight Vipers Over Bosnia Part 1: USAFE F-16C/Ds During Operation Deny Flight In April 1993, NATO had documented over 500 unauthorized military flights over Bosnian airspace since the United Nations passed Resolution 781 that prohibited those flights. The Umited Nations then passed Resolution 816 that extended the flight ban to all fixed and rotary wing in the country and authorized memeber states to use all measures need to comply. On 12 April 1993, NATO began Operation Deny Flight, combat air patrols to enforce the no fly zone over Bosnia Herzogovina. In June 1993, Resolution 836 allowed NATO to also provide close air support to UNPROFOR on request (This was not often used because requests had to go to the UN in New York, then to NATO then back to the pilots and ground forces involved). As a result, the typical loadout was of air to air missiles as well as a pair of bombs and jaming pod. The closest American air base to the conflict zone was Aviano AB in Italy. Many US Fighter units forward deployed there at the beginning, including elements of the 86th Fighter Wing (512th and 526th Fighter Squadrons) which was transitioning from the F-16C Block 30 to the F-16C Block 40. This unit was in the middle of that transition on 28 Feb 1994 when elements of the 526th FS engaged 6 Serbian J-21 jets with the USAF claiming 4 downed (the Serbs claim 5 were lost). Later in 1994, the 86th Wing ceased fighter operations and the two squadrons were moved to Aviano to become part of the 31st Fighter Wing (510th FS and 555th FS). These squadrons continued operations over Bosnia through the shoot down incident on 2 Jun 1995 and the air strikes conducted as part of Operation Deliberate Force. With the adopting of the Dayton Peace Accords, Deny Flight was determined to no longer be necessary and terminated on 15 December 1995. This mod represents the four USAFE main F-16 squadrons that took part, the 512th FS Dragons, 526th FS Knights, 510th FS Buzzards, and 555th FS Triple Nickel. It also covers the two different blocks of F-16 flown at the time (30 and 40) Included F-16C Block 30 and 40, F-16D Block 40 new F-16D Block 40 various period specific weapons and pilots various ini edits to match the era new hangar and loading screens NOTE: The D models have very few serial numbers to each unit. most units only had one or two family models. The best use for these is to add on as a member of a flight of single seaters. The load outs are the same so you will be able to load the same weapons.
