We are pleased to offer up a rebooted version of our origianal Mohawk tags! These "Block 2 tags" feature our updated card, tag shape(s), and a fresh tag design. They also come with our Card Guards.
The OV-1 was an American observation and light attack aircraft operated by the US ARMY. It was designed to replace the L-19 Bird Dog. The Navy and USMC had planned to acquire the type, but dropped out of the program, leaving only ARMY to operate the Mohawk. The ARMY used the Mohawk in Vietnam, where a single OV-1 shot down a MiG-17, and during Desert Storm. 31 OV-1s were converted to RV-1Ds, which came with advanced ELINT gathering packages. A total of 380 Mohawks were produced.
The RV-1D tags were cut from the fuselage of aircraft 62-14246, a Gulf War vet that had camels painted on its nose landing gear doors to signify missions flown.
These tags are offered in 2 variants: Thin and Riveted. The Thin tags are single layer tags. The Riveted tags have complete rivets and structure on the backside of the tags.
To commemorate 62-14246’s service, we’re going to be offering the Thin tags with a nose art inspired design on the back of the tags for the first week.
A Mohawk Combo will be available that comes with the Thin OV-1B tag and a Thin RV-1D tag. To view the OV-1B tag, please see its link on the Home Page.
These Block 2 tags look so good and there are not many left. Act quick to snag one before they leave the building.
