Default A4 Skyhawk - Haiphong Harbour Campaign Videos

]I love the A4 Skyhawk and to celebrate the update to Ver 1.4 I have been working on a series of videos to "simulate" the Vietnam era Rolling Thunder missions. Hopefully they will link together to make an interesting story. If folks like them, I will turn them into a campaign for others to download. Here is the first one. Let me know what you think and subscribe to follow along

Thanks. I really appreciate the feedback. Now up to 4 videos. The latest one features the AGM-45's and also the nav computer and the radar - which also don't get a lot of love on YouTube beyond some basic tutorials, but are actually very cool technology for the time.

Default Alpha Strike

And here's another installment. With some additional voice acting this time. It's short and sweet, but with 12 A-4's firing Zuni's and dropping bombs, its a busy 4 and half minutes.

Default Snake Eyes at Sunset

Just posted the sixth video in the series. Have a look for some low-light low-level flying. See the Nav Computer and the radar in action in profile mode. And of course, watch us drop some Snake Eyes right in the face of the enemy airfield.

Feedback always welcome. Let me know what you think.

Hmmmm... no one seems to have gotten the pun in the wingman's name in the SnakeEye video. Really? Did I make it too hard for you guys ;-)

Sidekicks videos are awesome, they are some of the best promotion Ive seen for DCS world and they promote a free module.
