    Need ID on this Afghan made SF (AVN?) related patched

    Post by DeOpressoLiber on Wed Apr 20, 2016 2:25 am

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to find an ID on this patch. There's not a lot to go from though; all it says is ARSON 52.
    The winged SOCOM spearheads instead of the aces make me think it's SF AVN related though.
    Perhaps 160th SOAR?

    Thanks in advance,

    Fred

    I was thinking ARSON 52 would be a call sign (just like EXTORTION 17).

    I'm having no luck tracking it down but I would guess as well that ARSON 52 (5-2, 5/2) would be their call sign.

    I've checked some of the aircraft spotters pages and found various uses of the call sign Arson.

    ARSON F15C/D United States (US)US USAFE 'LN' 493FS
    ARSON F16 United States (US)US USAF 'CC' 27FW

    Thank you for your comments! Seems like it was indeed a patch made for a specific AFSOC/ SOAR crew.
