So you are claiming a TECHNICAL?

Too bad you can't pour AV Gas all over yourself and strike a match...

Now that would be a TECHNICAL

Mission #5
 
Operation Ripper

March 6th 1951

 24xF4U-4B


March 6th 1951 Operation Ripper, also known as the Fourth Battle of Seoul
 was a United Nations military operation conceived by the commander US Eighth Army,
General Matthew Ridgway, during the Korean War.

 The operation was intended to destroy as much as possible of the Chinese communist People's
 Volunteer Army (PVA) and Korean People's Army (KPA) forces around Seoul and the towns of Hongch'on,
50 miles (80 km) east of Seoul, and Chuncheon, 15 miles (24 km) further south.
 The operation also aimed to bring UN troops to the 38th parallel.
 It followed upon the heels of Operation Killer, an eight-day UN offensive that concluded
 February 28, to push PVA/KPA forces north of the Han River. The operation was launched on
 March 6, 1951 with the US I Corps and IX Corps on the west near Seoul and Hoengsong and
 US X Corps and ROK III Corps in the east, to reach "Line Idaho", an arc with its apex
just south of the 38th Parallel in South Korea.


The Chinese are moving south towards Seoul.
Our ground troops and armor are on the way to establish a line.
Load up with your choice of ordinance and stop them before they arrive at our line.

Missiom #6 Black Thursday
 

 April.12th.1951

USAF pilots nicknamed April 12, 1951 "Black Thursday",
 after 30 MiG-15s attacked three squadrons of B-29 bombers (36 planes) escorted by approximately
 100 F-80s and F-84s. The MiGs were fast enough to engage the B-29s and extend away from their escorts.
 Three B-29s were shot down and seven more were damaged, with no casualties on the communist side.
 Following this, USAF bomber sorties over Korea were halted for approximately three months.
 Bomber commanders were forced to discontinue daylight raids, and changed to night missions
 by small formations.

                     12xF-80C Shooting Star..2nd.sqd
 
                     12x-84G1 Thunder Jet...3rd.sqd
                     
                     HQ & guest...fill in the holes



 Climb up to 5000m and escort the 29s to Nampo the target.

One thing is for sure, if we use the F4U-4B again as a ground pounder … I'll "not" be using the "Tiny Tim" rockets … EVER !!!!  :)

   Mission #7 MiG Alley (RAAF)

            Aug/29th 1951


 Meteor and MiG-15s pilots engaged each other for the first time on 25 August,
without either side scoring hits.
Four days later,24 Meteors fought 12 MiGs; one Australian ejected after his aircraft was shot down,
and a second Meteor was damaged. The following week, a Meteor suffered severe damage in a dogfight
 with MiGs. As a result of these losses, senior RAAF commanders decided to focus
 on escort and air defense sorties.

You will take off from a carrier located  in grid AO-38 KP-4 NNW and fly
all the way up to MiG Alley looking for a fight.

                                                                       Good Luck           AH  fraggmann

We're flying from a land base in this mission? I thought there was some mention of a carrier last night?

  KC-8 Mig Alley RAAF 2

  Sept/07th 1951


  Meteor and MiG-15s pilots engaged each other for the first time on 25 August,
without either side scoring hits. Four days later, 24 Meteors fought 12 MiGs; one Australian
 ejected after his aircraft was shot down, and a second Meteor was damaged.
The following week, 24 Sabres engaged in a dogfight with MiGs. As a result of these losses,
 senior RAAF commanders were convinced to focus on escort and air defense sorties.


                                                                                Fly up to Mig Alley and show those commies
                                                                                what southern Canadians can do.

KC-9 Bloody Ridge      July/2nd/19     


Aug/18th 1951
   
  8xAD-4
  8xF4U-5 
  8xA-26B

 Aug/18-Sept/05 1951 

The Battle of Bloody Ridge was an engagement of the Korean War fought between
 August 18th and September 5th of 1951.
Bloody Ridge was part of a system of outposts constructed on top of the Taebaek Mountain range,
north of the 38th Parallel border that divided both Koreas,
and gave the Chinese forces occupying them an excellent observation post from where to call artillery
 strikes against United Nations' (UN) positions. The UN attack at bloody ridge was part of a series of
 operations intended to secure their defenses by depriving the Chinese from observations points overlooking
 the UN's main line of resistance.  A-26s Look for convoys.  AD-4s and F4Us clear the hills.


                    
                   
                    1st sqd A-26B 17-40
                    2nd sqd F4U-5 9-16
                    3rd sqd AD-4  1-8
