About This File

FSX RLNL Grumman F9F VSQ3 Late. This livery represents a fictional "What if" repaint of the payware Grumman F9F-5 by Vertigo Studios in a Royal Netherlands Navy livery. The aircraft resembles what it would look like if the Dutch government chose the Grumman F9F Panther as their primary attack fighter operating from the sole Dutch Navy aircraft carrier from the late 1940's until the early 1960's, the HRMS Karel Doorman (CV, R81, Colossus Class). The Dutch navy operated two other aircraft carriers prior to this one (small MAC escort carriers, which were basically modified tankers), but the R81 was the first and only real aircraft carrier ever operational within the Royal Netherlands Navy, and to operate jet fighters from. This particular livery of the F9F is in a typical grey and duck-egg green pattern resembling all Dutch naval aircraft of that era, carrier and land based. This livery with the "V" marking denotes that the aircraft has NAS Valkenburg as home base instead of the (back then) available aircraft carrier "Karel Doorman", of which all aircraft were marked with a "D". You need the payware Vertigo Studios F9F in order to use this repaint. By Rene Spaan.
