FS2004 Cam Ranh Bay Airbase, Vietnam, Late 60's Scenery. A model of Cam Ranh Bay Airbase as it appeared in the late 1960s at the height of the Vietnam War. Cam Ranh Bay was the site of both a USAF airbase and a major deep water port facility. It was the home of the 483rd Tactical Airlift Wing and the 12th Tactical Fighter Wing (until 1970). This scenery was designed for FS 2002 but should also work with FS 2004. However, due to changes in the FS 2004 coastline contours, it may not align properly with the default FS 2004 scenery.

FS2004 Nam Phong RTAFB Vietnam, Late 60's Scenery. A model of Nam Phong RTAFB as it appeared in mid-1972 when much of it was still under construction. Nam Phong was originally an obscure Thai Air Force training base located about 60 miles south-southeast of the large USAF/Air America facility at Udorn. In response to increasing NVA attacks in the Central Highlands of South Vietnam, the US Marine Corps transferred three fighter/attack squadrons (known as “Task Force Delta”) from Da Nang to Nam Phong. A new 10,000 ft. concrete runway was built, and roads, aircraft parking and housing/storage areas were hacked out of the jungle by a joint USN/USMC engineering team. Nam Phong was nicknamed “the Rose Garden” in jest due to the extremely primitive conditions that existed there when the Marines first arrived. The nickname was borrowed from the Marine Corps advertising slogan, "We don't promise you a rose garden", which in turn was inspired by the lyrics of a popular country & western song by Lynn Anderson. The three USMC fighter/attack squadrons that took up permanent residence at Nam Phong were the VMFA-115 “Silver Eagles”, the VMFA-232 “Red Devils”, and the VMA(AW) -533 “Nighthawks”.

FS2004 Nakhon Phanom Royal Thai Air Force Base Vietnam, Late 60's Scenery. A model of Nakhon Phanom Royal Thai Air Force Base (NKP). Situated in the far northeast corner of Thailand right across the Mekong River from Laos, NKP was the smallest, remotest, and most primitive of the Thai airbases utilized by the US Air Force. Many of the operations that were conducted at NKP were top-secret. NKP was the headquarters of “Task Force Alpha”, the underground command center directing “Arc Light” bombing of the Ho Chi Minh trail. The 56th Air Commando Wing employed a variety of fixed wing aircraft and helicopters for interdiction, close air support, psychological warfare, search and rescue, forward air control, and clandestine insertion and extraction of special operations personnel in Laos and North Vietnam. One of the key covert missions conducted at NKP was “Operation Igloo White”, which involved the planting and monitoring of electronic sensors along the Ho Chi Minh trail. Air America also used NKP as a base to supply the various hill tribes in Laos. Note: This scenery requires the trees_v3.zip object library by Gerrish Gray (here).. George Knowles. 1.7MB
FS2004 Takhli RTAFB Vietnam, Late 60's Scenery. An upgraded model of Takhli RTAFB as it appeared in the late 1960s at the height of the Vietnam War. During those years, Takhli was the home of the USAFs 355th Tactical Fighter Wing, which flew F-105 Thunderchiefs and RB/EB-66 Destroyers. A large number of KC-135 tankers were also stationed at Takhli. In December 1970 the 355th TFW was deactivated and the airbase was closed. However, Takhli was reopened in April 1972 and served as a major base of combat operations during the Linebacker I and II campaigns. This is the fourth in a series of upgraded Vietnam War era Thai airbase models. The assistance of ?Bangkok Bob? Vaughn and other Takhli veterans in constructing this model is sincerely appreciated.

FS2004 Korat Royal Thai Air Force Base Vietnam, 1972 Scenery. An upgraded model of Korat Royal Thai Air Force Base as it appeared in 1972 during Linebacker I and II.

Korat RTAFB was the home of the USAF’s 388th Tactical Fighter Wing, which flew F-105D Thunderchiefs (“Thuds”) and F-4E Phantom II fighter bombers against ground targets in North Vietnam. Korat also hosted a variety of other aircraft types including the F-105G Wild Weasel, the RB-66 Destroyer, the EC-121 Super Constellation, and the A-7 Corsair II. Korat RTAFB was adjoined on the south by Camp Friendship, a US Army logistics and support base. Note: This scenery requires the trees_v3.zip object library by Gerrish Gray (here).
