                    In the cockpit of the Sea Vixen


                    the observer's pit, very cramped indeed


i hope that our good friends from AMT would see into this request and *maybe* integrate it into a add-on for jetwar or any other modder willing to pick up this beautiful plane and share it with the community

if this would happen, i think a lot of people would absolutely love it

Cheers,

Certainly would be nice to see. The Oceanic Team were working on the earlier single engined de Havilland Vampire but I've not seen any progress on that one for a long time.

So... going through request... I've found this diamond xD
Might seem boring as it did not participate in any big war, but it was providing aerial presence in many "local" wars, or as a preventive measure against wars. (Thanks to Vixen, the invasion of Kuwait took place not in 1960's but long after that - in 1990's...) Also CAS missions and CAP missions...

Plus it looks hot as hell.

As for strafing runs, FMJ... Rockets are enough, aren't they?

Yeah. With spiral scan, I would guess.
