It is too much of a task to for me to explain everything here and now for the sake of my Corsair repaints. Also, the Navy changed numerous squadron designations throughout the war to further confuse us. It was a dynamic history to say the least! I will just explain where each plane was operating from, either Navy or Marines, within each repaint's description. The Navy operated from Aircraft Carriers, and the Marines from land - as is the definition of each Branch's mission profile. Most of you know that the designation "VF" refers to Navy, and "VMF" refers to the Marines. So, the Navy a/c will be tied to a particular Aircraft Carrier, and the Marine a/c will be tied to a specific airfield or island at a particular time.</p> <!-- ITEM 1 --> <hr style="color:gray; height:2px; background-color:#004040; height:2px; width:960px; border:0; margin-top:10px; margin-bottom:5px;" /> <div style="min-height: 100px"> <a href="images/largescreen_vf17-8_01.jpg" target="_blank" name="PTO"><img src="images/largescreen_vf17-8_01.jpg" alt="Click to enlarge" style="float:left; margin-right:10px; margin-top:5px; margin-bottom:5px; height:90px; width:120px;" /></a> <h4><b><a href="\Downloads\SC_AFF4UA-VF17-8_DXT888.zip" class="effect1" target="_blank">VF-17, #8 Download</a></b></h4> <p class="three">10.4Mb</p> <p class="one">This set of textures depicts the modern FG-1D Corsair (BuNo 88391) owned by The Old Stick and Rudder Company in Masterton, New Zealand and English businessman James Slade.
