    Hanoi sure looks different now than when I was there last time in 1967 but then I was in the back seat of an F-4

    Probably changed a bit since you last bombed it and then scuttled out of there with your tails between your legs

    It's always seemed to be a bit of an unfair match to me. There's one guy in a high-tech jet fighter plane bristling with every known armament, and there's a man in a field....with a stick.

    And they still lost (again). I guess having righteousness is a must.

    I think you will find they did.

    USAF F4 Phantoms were used against the railroad running from Hanoi up into China.

    "The most important segment of the rail system was the single-track northeast railroad line that ran some 82 nautical miles from the Chinese border through Kep and into the heart of Hanoi. Ironically, in spite of the sheer number of vital targets all along the length of the northeast railroad, only 10 to 22 miles of its total length, depending upon timeframe was declared accessible for attack according to our own self imposed rules of engagement. The rest of the railroad line lay within the 30-mile buffer zone south of the North Vietnamese/Chinese border and the protected zones surrounding Hanoi and Haiphong. Within that 10 to 22 mile section of railway, the communists constructed anti-aircraft artillery (AAA) batteries every 48 feet. They also positioned a heavy concentration of surface-to-air missile (SAM) sites around the tracts."

    Now then how many of you would be willing to fly that mission with AAA every 48 feet ?

    If he is the back seater in a Wild Weasle his odds are better. No gunner in the F4, Navigator is the designated position, who also controls radar ECM etc. Lots of amazing shit (at the time) in a Wild Weasle that made them very difficult targets.
