The CF-104 is a ground attack aircraft available to Norway and BLUFOR decks that was introduced in Norse Dragons DLC for Wargame: Red Dragon.

HistoryEdit

The Lockheed F-104 Starfighter is a single-engine, single-seat, T-Tail supersonic fighter. It was the first fighter to use the General Electric M61A1 Gatling-style Vulcan Cannon. First flown 4 March 1954 and introduced to American arsenals in 1958, the Starfighter was highly exported to NATO nations. The F-104G was manufactured under license by several nations including Canadair, Messerschmitt, Dornier, Fiat, Fokker, and SABCA. It featured a strengthened fuselage, wing structure, landing gear, increased internal fuel capacity, a larger ventral fin, and revised flaps for better maneuverability.

In Norwegian service, the F-104 Starfighter was bought from Canada. Initially purchasing F-104G's built by Canadair in 1963 as part of the Military Assistance Program, they also received another surplus eighteen CF-104's and four CF-104D's from Canada in 1974.

OverviewEdit

Red DragonEdit

The Norwegian CF-104 in Wargame: Red Dragon is a light strike platform available to Norway and BLUFOR decks. It carries four Mk 77 Napalm bombs. The CF-104 Starfighter is best used for area denial operations and to burn enemy tanks and infantry out of cover. The type carries no air-to-air missiles and has poor ECM. These drawbacks are off-set by the aircraft's low cost to field. A fighter escort should be considered if the CF-104 is striking targets within enemy-controlled territory.
