Carrier operations on the deck of WW2 Essex Class - USS Shangri-La in year 1962, somewhere in the Mediterranean Sea.

 

With takeoffs and landings of the first, lightweight F-8A Crusaders being quite new, in service from 1957 (notice lector still calls it "F8U" along with the older Navy designation changed in the same 1962)

 

There are also A-4D Skyhawks light attack planes, F4D Skyray high altitude interceptors with huge lift to mass.

(Make sure you selected 1080P since video has great quality for 1962, year of Cuban missile crisis, it's way before Vietnam.)

 

 

 

Thanks for the video.  That was awesome.  We want that angled-deck, 2-steam-catapult equipped Essex-class carrier in DCS.  Shangri-La, Oriskany, Bon Homme Richard, Hancock, Lexington, Ticonderoga, and Intrepid.

 

BTW, it's A4D, not A-4D.  Those were A4D-2 or A4D-2N...A-4B or A-4C after 1962.  I think these were the A-4C with radar.  A(attack), 4D(4th attack model for the Navy by Douglas Corp, -2N(2nd sub-variant with Night capability radar added).  Like F4U-5N Corsair is F(Fighter), 4U (4th model of fighter for navy by Vought Corp, -5N (5th sub-variant, with radar added--night fighter).  Douglas had the AD Skyraider, A3D Skywarrior, A4D Skyhawk, F3D Skynight, and F4D Skyray...all in the late '50's and early 60's.  On top of that was the F4U, F6U, F7U, F8U, F2H, F3H, F4H, F6F, F7F, F8F, F9F, F11F, FJ, A2J, A3J, And I think that's why McNamara changed the whole system to something compatible with the Air Force system.

And similarly for the F-8 (F-8A thru F-8E):

 

F8U-1

F8U-1E

F8U-2

F8U-2N

F8U-2NE

 

The RF-8A was the F8U-1P.

The upgraded models logically never got any old Navy designations, as the retrofit-programme started after the re-naming in 1962.

 

As a fun fact and addition to what Andrew already wrote above:

There later was no A-4D, in order to avoid confusion with the earlier, initial Navy "A4D" designation.

Hence the skip from the A-4C (A4D-2N) to the A-4E (A4D-5). The A-4D-3 and A4D-4 were never built, but some technology and innovation was carried over into the -5.

 

So much for our little history lesson of the day. 😃

So ein Feuerball, JUNGE!

Slightly OT but that simulation (strike fighters )  is much better than its often given credit for btw.
Sure it can't compete with DCS in terms of FM and graphics, but it's got its strength in other areas 

and its far from arcade-ish. Survey sim is a better tag.

Interesting to see the Crusaders taking off in dry power. I guess it helps that they were flying clean.

 

At <> 240Kg and near zero drag for two pylons and 2 AIM-9 it wouldn't make much difference, I serviced the AIM-9B on Mirage IIIE for AdlA Dijon so I can make a good estimate...

So hyped for the Crusaders.. Got Strike Fighters 2 Vietnam just to fly them.. although I fly Phantoms, Intruders, Corsair 2's. Here is the cockpit supposedly

Yeah, that... Now create a mission, unlimited fuel and amo, gun only vs Mig-17 and 21, you'll perfect your rolling cissors technic, I loved it!

True and you can turn a Mirage F1 into a Rafale by changing its parameter for ToW, turn rate, climb rate etc, the level of cunstomisation achievable with this game is unequaled.

This is one of the planes coming to DCS that I'm most interested in, but I wouldn't expect much on it for quite a while yet. Corsair isn't out of the door yet (which I'm also looking forward to), and we haven't heard too much about that one in a while either. So I'd think we'll probably get Corsair in at least a month, probably a few months, and then they'll get cracking on the F-8 more heavily.

So many great planes coming .  So little time to fly. (Sigh)

 Chance-Vought F-8J Crusader

F-8J_Render_001.png

 

Since our artists are busy with the Corsair,  our programmers have been working diligently on the Crusader’s radar system.

 

While the ground mapping functionality of the AN/APQ-124 is very limited, the radar can be used for coastal mapping.

 

Below is a zoomed in screenshot from the video, displaying major geological features from the radar’s return off the coast of Poti Harbor City in the Caucases.

The Corona virus outbreak has certainly hindered our efforts for opportunities in the scanning department.  But we pushed through and were able to get some photogrammetry of the cockpit.  Our initial work wasn’t that far off from the real deal!  Work will continue in adjusting the geometry.

 

We hope to have some great news by next season regarding laser scans!

Same. Apart from the HB stuff and the RB Mig-23 the F-8J and F4U are my most awaited planes.

I know this Crusader should be fine from Nimitz-class carriers, but I don't know that F-8's (or F-4 Phantoms) ever operated from them.  They operated from Forrestal and Kitty Hawk classes of supercarriers (and the Midway's).  But I sure think it would be neat to operate the Crusader it from an angled-deck, Essex-class carrier.  There would two subgroups of the 7 Essex-class carriers modified with steam catapults and angled flight decks.  The first group of Intrepid, Ticonderoga and Hancock differed mainly in having the right (starboard), deck-edge elevator quite far aft.  The second group of Lexington, Bon Homme Richard, Oriskany and Shangri-La had the starboard elevator substantially more forward, just aft of the island.  Of course, I would be thrilled just to have the Oriskany.  But with two models, they could just put the numbers 11, 14 & 19 on the first model and 16, 31, 34, & 38 on the second model.  I'm sure there were minor differences between the individual ships of the 7, just as there were minor changes in armaments and antennas of each ship between yard periods.  I think just the two elevator differences and their nominal radars and armaments configuration during the mid-1960's would be good enough.  These 7 Essex-class carriers filled in until more supercarriers could be built, but the F-4 Phantom and A-6 Intruder were too heavy for the Essex ships, so the lighter F-8's and A-4's did the job on these ships.  The F-8J would be perfect from these ships, along with the A-4E-C Skyhawk.  Then maybe some pretty well detailed AI versions of the EKA-3B Skywarrior (tanker), E-1A Tracer (AEW) and SH-3A or D Sea King (or SH-2 Seasprite) helicopters and it should be all set!  And when the A-7E comes along, we'll be able to add that to these ships, too.  (It was actually the A-7A & B on these ships...but close enough.)

 

So, hopefully, the F4U Corsair and the WWII Essex, plus this version of the Essex-class when the F-8J comes out!  I can hope, anyway.  We'll see what happens.  Money in hand, waiting for the F-8J !  🙂

....but the F-4 Phantom and A-6 Intruder were too heavy for the Essex ships, so the lighter F-8's and A-4's did the job on these ships.  The F-8J would be perfect from these ships, along with the A-4E-C Skyhawk.  Then maybe some pretty well detailed AI versions of the EKA-3B Skywarrior (tanker), E-1A Tracer (AEW) and SH-3A or D Sea King (or SH-2 Seasprite) helicopters and it should be all set!  And when the A-7E comes along, we'll be able to add that to these ships, too.  (It was actually the A-7A & B on these ships...but close enough.)

No doubt Andrew has done his homework and come up with some very interesting facts about the angled deck Essex class carriers I was not aware of. I find it hard to understand though, the statement that the reason for the Phantom and Intruders not being operated from them was their weight while the A-3 Skywarrior was routinely embarked on them. That just doesn't compute. I am not doubting the accuracy of Andrew's statement that Phantoms and Intruders weren't operated from them, just can't accept that their weight was the reason. The KA-3 had to weigh far more than either of the Phantom or Intruder when launched with its full load of fuel, the fuel alone could weigh as much as 34,000 lbs! I am just thinking that there must have been a better explanation for why the F-4 and A-6 weren't flown from the Essex class carriers.
