WWII Plane Skyraider, final version.
Douglas AD-6 Skyraider (aka Spad, Able Dog, Sandy, Crazy Water Buffalo) by Digital Centurion and Footmunch -HISTORY The Sandy was a ground attack plane reportedly designed in a single night for the USAF. The first prototype flew before VE day, and the plane was introduced into service in the late 1940's. The plane is essentially an extension of the Close Air Support concept, whose effectiveness in the WWII was demonstrated by planes such as the Il-2 Sturmovik, the Hawker Tempest and the P-47 Thunderbolt. This concept is still valid today, with such planes as the A-10 consistently proving it's worth on the battlefield. The rugged, simple construction of the plane is an essential part of it's survivability, with many Spad's bringing their pilots home when other planes would have failed. The large number of pylons allowed for a huge range of weapons to be carried, allowing the Spad to engage any target. In the Korean War, the Spad began it's career as a workhorse for the US Air Force, US Navy and Marines. In the Vietnam war 15 years later, the Spad continued it's record of close air support missions. The long range of the plane allowed it to loiter over active areas, before being vectored to particular hot spots for the support of US and ARVN troops. The number of versions, other roles played (Anti-Submarine Warfare, Tug Plane, Ambulance, Search And Rescue, etc) and total production of run of Spads is a particular testament to this workhorse. -ADDON The plane has four Mk20 Rockeye cluster bombs. These fall as normal and deploy (open) at 50 metres. A number of submunitions then fall and destroy all soft targets within an area of around 10 metres by 30 metres. The munitions also cause damage to armored targets. Other ordanance includes 18 rockets and a gun pod with 500 rounds of ammuntion. The pilot can also fire flares and smoke shells to mark targets for other forces. The flares are launched directly upwards, while the smoke shell is launched along the axis of the plane. -CLASS NAMES Plane : RKTAFSandy Mk20 Rockeye : RKTRockeyeRail Rockets : RKTRocketRail Gun : RKTSandyGun The Authors can be contacted at the official forums at: www.flashpoint1985.com
