 Gates of Hell
Gates of Hell: North Vietnam, specially the area around Hanoi and Haiphong, fielded some of the heaviest air defenses ever seen in aerial warfare. This region saw some of the most intense air/ground battles waged during the Cold War period; indeed, it was the most difficult such campaign fought by the U.S. Air Force since the aerial bombardment of Germany during WW2. Supported by communist allies, North Vietnam fielded a potent mixture of sophisticated air-to-air and ground-to-air weapons that created one of the most effective air defenses ever faced by American military aviators.

In this image I`ve depicted a pair of F-105F "Thud`s" making a run-in along "Thud Ridge" towards the Hanoi area as part of a low-level strike against the POL facilities there...

F-105 Thunderchief, crew, and weapons by me, with additional scene props from a variety of sources.
Flak Effects by me as well...
