That is absolutely not true. The F-105G carried bombs on a regular basis in Vietnam to destroy the SAM launchers and support vehicles.

Huh interesting, however id surmise this must be a field mod ( and not exactly standard issue) because the F-105D manual and SAC sheet don't list the Shrike as part of armament.

Plus the Agm78 that the g has is a fair bit better. AFter all the Shrike was not a brand new design for the sead role, Its basically just a modified Aim7 missile to home in on Radiation emmited from radars.

With so many 'Nam era aircraft already in DCS how do ED not have a Vietnam Theatre in the works?

(Yes I have seen there is a mod for 1.5)

There's a Stearman module coming? Def gonna get that! J/K Love to see a 105 any variant. Not just for Vietnam, but any 60s scenario. Spent a lot of time flying Strikefighters in the past. It'd be cool to do in DCS.

Agreed. DCS is perfect to replicate the Vietnam air war....perfect. Problem is, we'll probably get everything for DCS Vietnam by 2035. My grandkids will get to play it.

There are no Vietnam era aircraft in DCS. These are later variants that did not participate in the conflict. Trying to use what we currently have to depict Vietnam War would be like recreating Battle of Britain with Bf-109K and Spit Mk IX.

Honestly I don't care if it's the wrong variant, if it still is the same aircraft. We are never going to get all the correct variants for aircraft for all of the scenarios we want. So better to make due with the Bf-109K vs Spitfire MkIX battle of Britain scenario, because we are never going to get a more accurate one.

Same with the Vietnam war stuff, we are never going to see a correct version of the MiG-21, Huey, and so on. But at least we have the aircraft, so lets just accept an inaccuracy in the variants and enjoy the awesome modules.
