How about one in USAF or Sth Vietnamese markings as a CAS bird over Vietnam?


I second this request.  SEA colors on this bird would be another perfect fit!  I think it would not be long before some of these Fokker-builts also made their way to Central and South America... 8)


Okay Guys, here are two CAS Birds, one from the USAF and one from VNAF

Hello Lauhof,

The USAF F3 looks extremely plausible!  :D  Good job with that one.   8)

The South American F3's were outstanding, I especially liked the first Brazilian bird  :)  Thanks for taking the time to make this side trip to South America.  :D

Best regards,

The F3UL-5TD was also delivered to the Indonesian Navy by Fokker at the end of the fifties. Mid fifties Australia ordered also F3UL-5TD's for two squadrons. They were immediately used in the Suez-crisis. For the 830 squadron plane I used the color and roundel ideas from Richard (Gekko1).

Thank you, Guys.

Just for the fun I went back to the first Vought-airplane in this range, the FMU-1 and made two whifs as if there was an Confederate and Texas state, as part of the United States, but with their own defense organisation,  joining in the korean war:

FMU-1 is looking meaner !  Add a jet/rocket in the tail & it could'a been reverse-engineered from a Cuban Mig-13 :o

Vought came in 1949 with the jet-powered FMU-3. It was delivered to the USAF, USN and Conf.AF and Texan AF. Here are two models, one from the texan airforce and one from the Conf. airforce,

Hi Lauhof,

That Texas Navy FMU-1 pilot would be pretty nervous flying in a Korean War scenario - that roundel is almost the same as the one used by the North Koreans :o 

Of course, you could say that as an Alt History, the North Koreans are using a marking system different from the one used in the real Korean War.  If not, I don't think it would be too long before that Texas pilot was being marked up a victory on some Allied pilot's tally board...

CPT Mike

When Germany was threatening Poland to invade, the Polish emigrants from Louisiana made a big lobby to the Richmond Congres to help Poland. In April 1939 the Confederated Congres signed an Mutual treaty with Poland to help each other. So, when the Nazis really invaded Poland the Confederated Government was the only part of the USA, which indeed declared war on Germany. Along with Texas they upgraded their defence forces and the US Navy send them some obsolete F3F's. In the meantime the Confederated States en Texas made contracts with Grumman; Vought; Curtiss and Seversky-Republic to build some new planes. They were really fond of the biplane-model so, unlike the USA, they wanted to develop the biplane-concept and asked the several builders to work together. But first here are two F3F's from the both navy's.

Lauhof

Also the Texan and Confederate airforces were equipped with the F3F. Here are two examples:
