Korean War Locomotives & War Series nº 2 - by Carlos Briz

And here we have another P-80 in the "hunting mode". 
The Shooting Star was the first operational jet fighter deployed in a combat situation, and it's debut was made in the Korean war. 
However, the Mig-15 soviet built fighter proved superior in air combat manouvering, and that led to the replacement of the P-80 by the F-86 Sabre for that purpose.

The "Long Tom" is one of my favourite field guns. 
I am not sure if placed on the wrong side of it, I would continue to say the same...


The Korean war was also the first time helicopters were used in major combat operations.


The Sikorsky H-19 over there is looking good.
