For the A-team Skunkworks USAF A-37A file which can be found in their THIRD PARTY section. In 1967, Operation Combat Dragon was underway in Vietnam to evaluate the new A-37A Dragonfly. A handful of these planes were chosen to test a new "sky camouflage" scheme of either solid pale blue or a blue/grey combo. The experiment was a HUGE SUCCESS....which is why it FAILED and was scrapped!! Want to know more?? Download and find out.....:)

A skin for the Skunkworks recent release of the A3D-1 Skywarrior. Here is VAH-3, the "Sea Dragons" of NAS Sanford in Florida. This was the RAG (Replacement Air Group) for Atlantic fleet Skywarrior squadrons. See the enclosed Read Me file for historical background and installation.
An SF2 Series upgrade of Suhsjake's A-4A Skyhawk. Two new skins have been added:

By the mid-1950's, the entire Corsair fleet was considered "obsolete" and both the Navy and Marines began to phase them out of active squadrons and into scattered Reserve units throughout the country. This AU-1 depicts the LAST ACTIVE MARINE UNIT to operate the AU-1. This was AES-12 (Aircraft Engineering Squadron Twelve) based at MCAS Quantico,Virginia in 1957. It is unusual because it was one of the few examples where the Corsair was around just long enough to receive the new "grey over white" paint scheme the navy mandated in 1956.
Please see enclosed read me for history and installation instructions.
For the Mirage Factory AU-1 as posted by Crusader.

The C-135E Stratolifter! Now you can haul 16 jeeps through the air and deliver em' to the troops at Saigon, Can Ranh Bay or wherever! Nobody does it better than the MAC......once known as Military Air Transport Service (MATS).

Something a little different....but different is good....ENJOY!!
includes: C-135E file, sounds,jeeps(weapons) and some USAF pilots to make it happen.
This is an upgrade mod for the A-team Skunkworks A-37B Supertweet. You will need to obtain this file first (Located on their Modern Aircraft page) and do some very minor surgery since no 3D files come with this package. A step by step READ-ME is included for installation. The drop-tank and antenna package along with new pilots are included as well. This version of the Dragonfly is the standard "B" model WITH the nose refueling probe. The skin included is for the 604thSpecial Operations Squadron, Bien Hoa Airbase Vietnam 1969-70. The tailcode is the proper "CK". There will be several ADD-ON skins to follow, both USAF and Central/South American air forces.Requests for a custom skin will be considered. A historical read-me is included.

Another skin for the skunkwoks T-28A Trojan which can be found in their Third Party section.
In 1958, the United States allowed the sale and export of 10 T-28A Trojan trainers to the Batista government in Cuba. They were to be used as primary and advanced training aircraft for the FAEC (Fuerza Aerea del Ejercito de Cuba)....the Cuban Air Force.
With the overthrow of the Batista government in 1959, the U.S. placed an immediate embargo on the sale, but four planes had already been delivered. These four fell into the hands of Castro and were placed into service with the FAR(Fuerza Aerea Revolutionaria)....the Cuban Revolutionary Air Force. They were apparently in service during the Bay of Pigs Invasion of 1961.....however what(if any) role they played is unknown.
An upgrade package for the Dehavilland Hornet F3 which can be found at the A-team Website. This is NOT a complete aircraft file since no LODs are included. You will need to get them separately.
