Results of calculations of the rotationally resolved photoelectron spectra of the V_2^+ ground state obtained by two-color excitation via the A ^3Π_u ← X^3 Σ_g^- system are reported and compared with recent pulsed-field-ionization zero-kinetic-energy measurements of these spectra. Agreement between the measured and calculated spectra is very encouraging. Both illustrate that the spin-orbit interaction plays an important role in photoionization of the A ^3Π_u state of V_2 leading to the X^4Σ_g^− state of V_2^+. Striking differences are seen in the ion rotational distributions for ionization via the A ^3Π_(1u) and A ^3Π_(2u spin-orbit components.
