Virtual Air Combat (VAC)! VAC is a gathering of many groups, squadrons, and entities of passionate individuals flying combat aircraft online primarily through Digital Combat Simulator.Located in the United States but many members are found throughout the world
Our mission is very clear - provide the best and fully operation pilots in Digital Combat Simulation to perform airshows, combat missions, and just have fun in the light hearted environment. Real life aviation pilots to help others in the steep learning curve to become proficiant digital pilots and aviation experts.
The first group to be incorporated in Virtual Air Combat is the 421st Virtual Fighter Squadron, founded in 2020 and is based on the 421st Fighter Squadron at Hill Air Force Base, UT. The squadron's nickname "Black Widows" is derived from its World War II combat heritage of flying the Northrop P-61 Black Widow night fighter, the only dedicated night fighter produced by the United States during the war. Although the real 421st Fighter Squadron has recently transitioned to the F-35A, it remains as one of the most decorated fighter squadrons in the United States Air Force, being awarded three Presidential Unit Citations and seven Air Force Outstanding Unit Awards for Valor in Combat. Moreover it remained as one of the longest operating General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon units together with its sister squadron assigned to the 388th, the 4th Fighter Squadron. Just like its real counterpart, the 421 Virtual Fighter Squadron trains and conducts Day/Night air superiority and precision strike sorties employing laser-guided and inertially aided munitions via Digital Combat Simulator.
