Dan Hampton's book "The Hunter Killers," about the birth of his beloved defense suppression/Wild Weasel mission, opens with Operation Spring High: the first attempt to deliberately target Surface to Air Missile (SAM) sites in North Vietnam.
Great summary of the mission here: https://www.historynet.com/operation-spring-high-thuds-vs-sams.htm
It's a perfect microcosm the Rolling Thunder campaign... targets picked and micromanaged by Washington, tactics and weapons intended for a different war entirely, technology that would still have been very familiar to WW2 veterans, and over it all unbelievable bravery on the part of the aircrews.
I happened to just be getting back into Command Modern Operations after a long absence, at the same time I was reading the book. I poked around to see if anyone had already built it... and shockingly it didn't seem to be out there. If I missed it and I'm duplicating someones work, I apologize. Also, it's been quite a while since I've built one of these so it could be a bit rough. Let me know what you think, input and suggestions are very welcome.
