The Mudfighter Thread

The Fantan always struck me as one of those Chinese designs incorporating newer technology into older airframes due to being really poor before the '80s.

It's a  neat bird, though admittedly my strongest feelings about it from from Silent Thunder: A-10 Tank Killer II.

I first got interested in the Skyraider as a Kid reading Vietnam war stories. The amount of times the skyradiers came up in stories with rescue missions stuck in my head.  A large ordanance load and long loiter time make for a good CAS/COIN aircraft.

Yep, me too. And as bad as the movie was, Flight of the Intruder has some great Skyraider action at the end.
