About the Project
The project was motivated by our desire to recreate for Flight Simulator X the aerial campaign that took place over the countries of South East Asia during the period 1963 – 1975. For that purpose, airbases, airports and airstrips had to be recreated for Vietnam (North and South), Thailand, Laos and Cambodia. Furthermore American airbases outside the war zone like Andersen (Guam), Clark (Philippines), Elmendorf (Alaska), Kadena (Japan), and Ching Chuan Kang (Taiwan) have also been worked on.
