VRC is doing the Super Sabre D, so that's already our ride

We have AI F-4 and F-5, so it helps.

More than the map, I think we're missing aircraft. You can use a map to simulate another region jist fine - it's been done before a thousand times, and it will be done again. Wasn't there a fantastic campaign for BS1 that used the Caucasus as India or something like it? Plus a lot of old Il-2 great campaigns used the same region to simulate Southeast England.

I had this idea... Someone should really grab Thud Ridge and recreate some missions with the available planeset (perhaps using equivalents e.g. A-10 replacing the Skyraider?) and map, just to get the feel of it (and explore the Caucasus as a stopgap for a 'nam map).

A Vietnam map would be great but we are lacking the essential UH-1B .

Well, you can't have Thud Ridge without the Thud. The F-105D/F/G is a must have for any map covering North Vietnam. Of course you would have to have the F-4B/C/D/E/J, F-8E/H/J, F-104C, F-102A, EB-66E, A-1E/H/J, A-4E/F, A-7B/C/E, A-6A/B, F-111A, KA-3B, EKA-3B, RA-5C, RF-4C, B-52D/F/G, CH-53B/C/D, MiG-21PF, MiG-17F, and MiG-19P. For the war in the south we would need (in addition to a few of the types previously listed) the O-1E, O-2A, OV-10A, F-100C/D/F, UH-1B/C/D, CH-54A/B, CH-47A, OH-6A, AC-130A, AC-47A, C-130A/B/E, C-7A/B, C-123B/K, NC-123K, AC-119G/K, AH-1G and AP-2H. The map would also have to include more than Just North and south Vietnam but also Cambodia, Laos, Thailand a considerable part of the Gulf of Tonkin and South China Sea as well.

During the Korean War jet fighters, notably, the U.S. F-86 and the Soviet MiG-15, were extensively used. The U.S. F-100 and F-4; the Soviet MiG-21; and the French Mirage III saw combat service in the Middle East and in Vietnam in the 1960s and ’70s.
Do someone have more information about Mirage III in vietnam ?

It would be great to have this fully operational and have someone in an O1 or OV10 providing FAC support for jet jocks. With the lack of any targeting pod, etc...its all Mk1 eyeball combined with instruction and WP rockets for targeting.
