The A-1J Skyraider was an upgraded variant of the A-1H used by the US Navy and the US Air Force during the Vietnam War. It featured improved avionics and stronger wings for increased payload capacity. The A-1J served in close air support, reconnaissance, and search and rescue missions. Its long loiter time and ability to carry a wide array of ordnance made it highly effective in providing air support. The A-1J remained in service until the early 1970s, before it was replaced by more modern attack jets like the A-4 Skyhawk and the A-6 Intruder.

I love the Skyraider. This is a cool build, and I even saved it
One gripe: Why are the wing cannons non-functional?
@Randomplayer wait never mind found it
What’s the plane in the second to last photo?
The jet bois : props are the thing of the past ! There is no need for such aircraft in the modern sophisticated war !
The Tuscanos , and the other props vets : slow is smooth , smooth is fast , fast and smooth.
@Mustang51 Oh not yet, but u bet you a Little Bird or Chinook would be absolutely hilarious, just pack as many as possible on the bottom😂
@Kazin me too, they’re amazing. Have you tried putting multiple on a helicopter or slow flying plane but angling them all around it?
@Mustang51 either way, im having WAYYYY too much fun with those🤭😂
@Kazin those are the CBU-14 cluster bomb pods
Amazing build the only issues I noticed were
the flaps actually make the aircraft pitch down
The trim is SUPER sensitive
And the switches for the pylon jettison don’t actually jettison one at a time (lost my whole mission load over finding that out in vr 😂)
@mmsace turns out the cannon balls that drop from the 20mm act like grenades, so it's AWESOME in its own right lol
@Mustang51 I was gonna but i guess i forgor
Pretty nice! Looks great and handles really well. One question though, why not make the 20mm a functional?
Get a raise, you deserve it
This is amazing! Hey could you provide me screen shots for my next builds?
i was just scrolling through your builds and you suddenly posted, nice!!!
