Improvement tagged[edit]

Why was this article tagged?


First part of article history: here (started by Pibwl ←«)

Um... let's see. No references, doubtlessly multiple inaccuracies, and in need of a general overhaul. The overall goal of any article, especially one as important as this in history, is to achieve at least a class C rating. I would not give this a class D. Although I was not the person who tagged this, I agree with doing so. If anyone has background in this area of history, please feel free to look it over. 71.82.138.19 (talk) 07:02, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

The title[edit]

Is it better just choose "Vietnam People's Air force", we already havethe word "People's", why must change to "Vietnamese People's Air Force"? (Ng2minh (talk) 07:45, 16 December 2008 (UTC))

American Equipment[edit]

Shouldn't some of the American leftovers still be in service in the VPAF not just the C-130 or UH-1 like the F-5 and T-37 they aren't obsolete so why aren't they using them.--Coffeekid (talk) 19:13, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Um, perhaps lack of training manuals, spares, and tools? Buckshot06(prof) 12:07, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

Well mostly lacked of spare parts, and they're doesn't have any necessary of using them (basically, why should you using a C-130 for transport, when you're having 10 Tu-150 that can do better?)Zeraful —Preceding undated comment added 08:33, 14 July 2011 (UTC).

Mig-23 in Vietnam[edit]

In this article it is stated that the VPAF have 36 Mig-23.

In the Wikipedia article about Mig-23, Vietnam is not listed as current operator of Mig-23. Why???

Can we please lock this?[edit]

There are some people out there, who leave only a bare IP address, who are reverting info in this article to unreferenced material, and it's not right. Is there a way to lock this article so only people with an account can write into it? Openskye (talk) 04:12, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

First aerial victory dubious[edit]

Although there was excellent reason to believe the C-123 fired upon on the night of 14/15 February 1964 was downed, it actually survived and recovered at Nakhon Phanom Royal Thai Navy Base. The C-123 was hit in the left engine, and rolled down out of the attacking T-28's view. However, the Nationalist Chinese regained control at a lower altitude. Details may be found on pages 158-161 of Spies and commandos: how America lost the secret war in North Vietnam, Kenneth J. Conboy, Dale Andradé, University Press of Kansas, 2000. ISBN 0700610022, 9780700610020.

Last use of biplanes in combat?[edit]

With reference to Battle of Lima Site 85...

It can be seen that the VPAF used AN-2 Colts in an air raid on the secret radar station in Laos. Shouldn't this be added to the History section?
