This is an updated livery (2.0) of the John McCain A-4E Skyhawk (149959) he was flying when he was shot down over Vietnam in 1967. New livery icludes better details and weathering. The livery itself is from the U.S. Navy attack squadron VA-163 Saints. Only difference from the original is the "LCDR JOHN McCAIN" name tag added under the cockpit to denote his final rank in the Navy. RIP John and fly on.
Fly an Iron Hand mission to take out a pesky SAM site guarding Haiphong Harbour.
Fly low and fast. Pop up and aim your Shrikes at the SAM radar. Once it is down you can follow up with your zuni rockets to take out the launchers themselves.
A scoring system is included. Re-fly it and try to improve your score.
A fairly straightforward mission. Easy to fly, hard to master. Taking out the SAM site should not be a challenge if you fly the planned route. But you'll have to do it using the Navigational aids the A-4 gives you. Once you have the radar down the real fun begins. There is a lot of low level AAA about. How many launchers can you get with your 8 rockets and live to tell the tale?
