    The F-111A Aardvark, operated by the 430th Tactical Fighter Squadron (TFS) under the 347th Tactical Fighter Wing (TFW) stationed at Korat Royal Thai Air Force Base in 1975, played a crucial role during the Vietnam War. This swing-wing bomber was designed for low-level penetration missions and possessed advanced avionics, making it a versatile platform for both strategic bombing and tactical interdiction.
    During its service in 1975, the F-111A Aardvark was engaged in supporting operations in Southeast Asia.
