Operation Rolling Thunder

Operation Rolling Thunder was the title of a gradual and sustained aerial bombardment campaign conducted by the 2nd Air Division, U.S. Navy and Republic of Vietnam Air Force against Democratic Republic of Vietnam from 2 March 1965 until 2 November 1968, during the Vietnam War

The task of the campaign was to encourage the morale of South Vietnam and to prevent influx of soliders and equipment to the south, it was controlled by the Americans civilian division it was originally the 2nd Air Division but as of April 1966 bombing was also conducted the 7th USAF, the navy launched attacks from Aircraft carriers from the Gulf of Tonkin and the 7 and 2 USAF launched from Thailand airbases.

To stop the Navy and USAF from colliding in the air, they divide it into 7 zones with the USAF had 1,5 and 6A whilst the Navy had 2,3,4 and 6B and the border between China and Hanoi were prohibited areas. The lead plane was the F5 Thunderchief with more than 75% of the US sorties, they would carry either 5x1000lb or 6x750lb but flying this distance caused them refuel in the air, they then introduced the F4 Phantom and it would replace the F5 but it was limited during rainy seasons but this could of been overcome by the use of b-57. The navy used Douglas A-7 skyraiders and it was replaces by the A4 Skyhawk. The North Vietnamese used SA 2 missiles and various other defences. Operation Iron hand was a sub mission launched to destroy SAM sites. The Us also faced another problem the North Vietnamese Air Force against Mig 17 and 21. There was many restrictions so Operation Rolling Thunder wasnt as effective as they believed it would be.

In the end of Operation Rolling Thunder it didnt reach its military or political goals and became a burden for Johnson administration staff. Ok March 31 1968 caused a partial pause in the bombing campaign which ending in the operation.
