ah nice so its belsimtek making the f5e, i thought it may have been a ED project.

good to know its official now( more than just teases/hints)

either way mig21bis never saw service in the vietnam conflict, at least not while the us was involved militarily, so for a 100% historical vietnam scneraio we would need a earlier second generation mig21 like the "PFM", and of course a vietnam theatre map to go with it.

I would pay £35 for a phantom and £20 for a big Vietnam map.

Maybe something like Korea would be super awesome

Thanks Neil.

Full disclosure, I spent ten years in USAF. In that time I had a vice wing commander who was a EWO in wave one for Baghdad in '91 and flew with two other Bears (EWO's) who in retirement were flight test engineers. Ever since I've been quite fascinated by any Wild Weasel or F-105 biography/memoirs and have read them.

So, all this to say I'd love to fly a Thud or Weasel.

Now, just a hint as to what I spend my limited free time playing with..

Care to guess what that is?

The "Lopsided" comment above is not very accurate when you look at the various missions that could be run on that map. Helicopter enthusiasts could fly their little hearts out with an AI ground battle raging while the fixed wing guys fly their ground attack missions. Assuming that a decent multiplayer carrier environment comes out with 2.0, the fight up North could very entertaining with Mig-17's, Mig-19's and Mig-21's flying against A-1's, A-4's, A-6's, A-7's, F-8's and F-4's.

The smart way for ED/ third party to go about it would be to do a regional map covering the South China Sea. Extending to Vietnam in the west edge of the map, around Shanghai in the north (so as to include Taiwan), and the Phillipines as the boundary to the South and East.

Build the map first as just terrain, with no roads or structures. Then add on the manmade features to build map variants: 1944, 1970, and 2010.

This would allow you to cover many of the most important campaigns (and what-if/ could-of-been campaigns) since the introduction of military aviation. You could cover significant portions of WW2 Pacific theater, Vietnam, the Vietnam-China war (maybe I should say conflict; it hardly lasted long enough to be really considered a war), the perpetual China-Taiwan crisis, and the current China/ everyone else in the South China Sea conflict as a modern theater.

Unrelated to last post-

What are the prop aircraft used in the Vietnam war and would anyone want them?

Off the top of my head:

A-1 (formerly AD) Skyraider; CAS/ attack/ CSAR escort
T-28 Trojan; COIN/ light attack
OV-10; AFAC/ COIN/ light attack
O-2 Skymaster; AFAC

And yes, want all. Particularly the A-1, as it was used in both Korea and Vietnam, and was in fact a WW2 design that just didn't quite make it in time before the war ended, but would be neat for the "1946" scenarios (as would aircraft like the F8F Bearcat, P-51H, P-80, and others)

Edit: if you want to include transports, the number of aircraft is significantly larger. And, of course, there were AC-47 gunships made on the DC-3 airframe.

The A-1 literally looks like the forefather of the f-86

Good to see healthy discussion re Vietnam scenarios. I'd certainly pay good money for a fully detailed Thud, esp with an SEA map. The A1 would also be awesome...kinda like a prop version of the A10C!! this is off wikipedia:

Armament

Guns: 4 × 20 mm (0.79 in) M2 cannon
Other: Up to 8,000 lb (3,600 kg) of ordnance on 15 external hardpoints including bombs, torpedoes, mine dispensers, unguided rockets, and gun pods.

4 x 20mm cannon...mmm....
