Five missions for the USAF F-51D of the "Sabre Vs MiG"add-on of Fligh1.Included Scenery of the main Mustangs base in the Korean war: K-10 Chinhae and a revision of the DP file for the Yak-9.
The missions were acomplished in the first days of November 1950 and are quite veridical; geographical,coordinates, units, dates, airfield bases,meteo,squadrons, pilots,etc.
No real is the standard Yak-9 supplied by Fligh1. The aircraft paint represent a V-VS(Russian Air Force)
fighter with the typical Russian camouflage; actually no Yak-9 were operated with Russian insignias in
Korea. The planes, models Yak-9P and Yak-9U, were assigned to the KPAFAC(North Korean Air Force) and
flew by crews of this nacionality, his painting scheme was a Russian post-war light blue grey with the
KPAFAC roundels under of the wings and in fuselage sides.The pilots were rookies but some success was achieved: one USAF F-80C of the 36 FBS,was shot down the 19-Jul-1950 by one Yak-9(Actually the first Korean war victory of a one piston fighter over a Jet);B-29s,F-51s,F-82s, were others victories of the Yaks in the early phase of the Korean war.V-VS had operated with a few LA-11.I have planned a repaint of the Yak-9 with the real colours of the KPAFAC and eventually convert to flight.
