Korea 1952! Server - Multi-Squadron Coop - Saturdays 2300 Zulu

Post  Speed on Tue Aug 21, 2018 3:16 pm

Here's a call-out to all F-86 and MiG15 flyers to get your flights and squadrons into SeaQuark's Korea! 1952 server on Saturday nights to enjoy some vintage Korean War air combat.

Just posted a wee advert over on the ED Forums to help drum up a few more Sabre and Fagot flights wanting to participate in organized, mission oriented flying in a multi-squadron coop context.

Just in case anyone reads this and doesn't know:

The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15 (Russian: Микоян и Гуревич МиГ-15; USAF/DoD designation: Type 14; NATO reporting name: Fagot) is a jet fighter aircraft developed by Mikoyan-Gurevich for the Soviet Union. The MiG-15 was one of the first successful jet fighters to incorporate swept wings to achieve high transonic speeds. In combat over Korea, it outclassed straight-winged jet day fighters, which were largely relegated to ground-attack roles, and was quickly countered by the similar American swept-wing North American F-86 Sabre. The MiG-15 is often mentioned, along with the F-86 Sabre, as the best fighter aircraft of the Korean War.

What's in a name?

MiG-15bis Fagot - (meaning - a bundle of sticks or twigs bound together as fuel)

NATO reporting names are code names for military equipment of Russia, China, and, historically, the former Eastern Bloc (Soviet Union and other nations of the Warsaw Pact). They provide unambiguous and easily understood English words in a uniform manner in place of the original designations, which either may have been unknown to the Western world at the time or easily confused codes.[1] For example, the Russian bomber jet Tupolev Tu-160 is simply called Blackjack.

NATO maintains lists of the names. The assignment of the names for the Russian and Chinese aircraft was once managed by the five-nation Air Standardization Coordinating Committee (ASCC) (now called the Air and Space Interoperability Council, or ASIC, which includes representatives of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States), but that is no longer the case.

Aircraft

The first letter indicates the type of aircraft, like Bear for a bomber aircraft, or Fulcrum for a fighter aircraft.

F—fighter aircraft, also later ground attack aircraft: List of NATO reporting names for fighter aircraft https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NATO_reporting_names_for_fighter_aircraft
B—bomber aircraft: List of NATO reporting names for bomber aircraft
C—commercial aircraft and airliners, and cargo aircraft: List of NATO reporting names for transport aircraft
H—helicopters: List of NATO reporting names for helicopters
M—Miscellaneous; trainers, reconnaissance, seaplanes, tankers, AEW etc.: List of NATO reporting names for miscellaneous aircraft
