With the almighty, long legendary P51 Mustang as their chosen steed, the 356th Tactical Fighter Squadron flew as long-range fighter escorts to protect our beloved bombers on the way to a target to deliver with utmost delight, deadliest steel showers that flowered with blossoming bangs and plumes of boom. It was a comforting feeling for those bombadiers, knowing their plane paths, both in and out were covered by an impenetrable firewall. The ‘Stangs with ferocious fangs would throttle to maximum, pulling hardest Gs during loops, cutbacks, and banks, flying loops around enemy intruders, and slap foes down as the losers.
The order of the day, the only way of aerial combat life was to burn bullets into the enemy fighters. Sheer off wings and canopies during deadly .50-caliber machine gun passes performed at breakneck speeds. There was no quit in their eyes, it was all about coming out on top. Fliers of the 356th outperformed and out gunned with such a professional coolness, always focused on winning the aerial fight, even before they’ve gotten out of bed that morning.
The 356th Tactical Fighter Squadron patch exhibits the fearsome face of a green devil and his nasty grimace, with pointedly white arrows directed straight to the right. With such a satanic scowl, the madness at our enemies is eminently elegant. The four arrows signify a finger-four flying formation. This is a long-proven fighter plane posture when flying in hunter-killer groups, to promote exemplary fighter pilot battlefield positioning, and enhance combative flight energy performance during severe war conditions. For this historically accurate patch, the devil’s visage is staged upon a black disk, with red and white outlying rings.
