Operational overview
The Vietnam War spanned a long time period from the first French skirmishes in 1946 to the final communist victory in 1975. During this 30 year period technology developed rapidly during the course of the war to solve new and unique problems encountered by US and French forces on the ground. Development ranged from the first WWII vintage French fighters strafing the jungle to the laser guided bombs of the F-4 Phantom IIs taking out bridges in the North.
The conflict in Vietnam saw the use of the helicopter on a mass scale for the first time both as a transport and as a gunship. The aircraft used in the conflict ranged from the small FAC spotter aircraft to the massive B-52. The air forces in North Vietnam used advanced MiG fighters to intercept and engage US aircraft bombing key targets in North Vietnam.

The Rules and Regs
Rules and Regulations
This campaign is supposed to concern all aircraft used in the Vietnam conflict from 1946 to 1975. The aircraft could be from any country participating in the Vietnam War.
To qualify the aircraft must have been used in Vietnam and should be represented in the camouflage and markings that were used in Vietnam. For example a MiG-21 should be in North Vietnamese camouflage and markings, not East German.
Due to the long time span of the conflict and the various assignments undertaken by especially the US air force, US marines, US Navy, and US Army the aircraft that can be build are almost endless.
Here are some examples of planes that would fit into this campaign:
F8F Bearcat
Spitfire F.IX
C-47
F-105 Thunderchief
B-52 Stratofortress
AC-130 Gunship
UH-1 Huey
CH-47 Chinook
F-4 Phantom II
MiG-17
MiG-19
MiG-21
Douglas A-1 Skyraider
A-4 Skyhawk

But remember all should be in camouflage and markings from the Vietnam conflict.

There are many more airplanes that qualify than the above examples. If you have any doubts, just ask.

Dioramas and figures are welcome. All scales are fine.

Contest Element
A ribbon will be given for all completed entries as soon as the ribbon is designed.
