72-003 - BLACK PONIES & MORE BRONCOS
USN/USMC OV-10A Broncos in the Vietnam War Era

This decal sheet predominately covers the unique and relatively short-lived Navy Light Attack Squadron 4 (VAL-4), Black Ponies, allowing the option to represent one of many possible VAL-4 Broncos throughout their entire Vietnam War service from 1969-72.  This sheet also includes two other squadrons during the Vietnam period: Navy Air Anti-Submarine Squadron 41 (VS-41), Shamrocks, an S-2 Tracker squadron that was also responsible for the stateside training of VAL-4 crews and personnel throughout the war; and also covered is Marine Observation Squadron 6 (VMO-6), “Cherry Six” (Klondikers), who used the Bronco heavily in various combat roles in Vietnam from 1968-69; and also another option for VMO-6 as their aircraft appeared when stationed in Japan.

Instructions Correction: VS-41 is incorrectly defined using the more recent terminology (Sea Control).  However, at the time of the featured Broncos, VS was Air Anti-Submarine Squadron.
