Douglas A-1H Skyraider

3,762 BandicootNewSnipes  2.4 years ago
Auto Credit Based on YourWife's A-1 revision

Credit to iStoleYourMeme and YourWife for making the performance better and bug fixes.

I advise maxing out the trim due to the heavy nose drop.

The Douglas A-1 Skyraider was an attacker designed during the 40's and saw service up until the 80's.
This model, the A-1H, saw widespread usage during the course of the Vietnam war and provided close air support (CAS).

Features custom made control surfaces and a fully detailed exterior.

10 rockets and 2 unguided bombs with 4x 20mm machine guns.

Thanks for taking a look and i hope to see some criticism! :)

    @BandicootNewSnipes Yes, I know.
    Did you know that at the start of the war a Skyraider brought down a MiG-17? Two MiGs came down on a line of four A-1s, and as they attacked the leading Skyraider the second and third aircraft pulled up and raked the MiGs with 20mm cannon fire, shooting one down in flames.

    @TheFantasticTyphoon it's funny you mention that, because the MiG-21s were also capable of bringing down the earliest versions of the F-4 Phantom during the Vietnam war. Phantoms had no guns whereas the MiGs did.
    Thanks by the way !
