The Soviet shoulder-launched SA-7b Grail surface to air missile (SAM) proved very effective against low-flying aircraft. This heat-seeking SAM forced FACs to fly much higher to stay out of range. Since the OV-10’s twin engines produced a large amount of heat, the OV-10 FACs had to fly above 9,500 feet. A communist soldier using an SA-7 Grail. (U.S. Air Force photo)

The “Other War” – “Out-of-Country”

In July 1966, USAF FACS began flying reconnaissance missions over North Vietnam's lower southern panhandle. Like their counterparts in South Vietnam, FACs in the North flew continual daily reconnaissance flights over the same terrain to become familiar with activity down below. When they located a military target, they directed air strikes against it. This picture shows the light, unarmed O-1 Bird dog spotter plane flying over North Vietnam in August 1966. The growing enemy air defenses soon became a serious threat to the slow flying FACs. (U.S. Air Force)

When certain that the fighter pilot was attacking the correct target, using the right weapons, and not threatening friendly troops or civilians, the FAC gave permission to attack.

When North Vietnamese Army forces attacked the Special Operations outpost at Lang Vei, near Khe Sanh, in February 1968, FACs assisted the defenders by directing air strikes. In addition, they provided valuable intelligence information. This photograph of two PT-76 tanks disabled on the road leading into Lang Vei proved that the communists were using armored vehicles in South Vietnam. (U.S. Air Force photo)

Betrayed by a traitor in March 1943, Dr. Guérisse suffered brutal Gestapo torture, but did not reveal any names. Sent to a concentration camp and sentenced to death, he somehow survived the war.
