Douglas A-4C Skyhawk (A4D-2N)

The A-4 is the lightest and smallest jet fighter built by the United States.  The single engined, single-seated attack jet served with distinction as both a land and carrier based attack aircraft.

In an attempt to reverse the trend toward larger and more expensive aircraft, the A-4 was intended to be the jet powered successor to Mr. Heinemann's AD Skyraider design.

While initially designed as a simple attack aircraft, the A-4 was continually upgraded and was able to utilize the latest ground attack weapons.

The A-4 saw service with the US Navy, US Marines and air forces of Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Indonesia, Israel, Kuwait, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore.

After more than 22 years of production and many upgrades, over 2,900 A-4s were built.

This sample is an A-4C, the most numerous A-4 variant produced.

The A-4 saw combat in Vietnam, the 1973 Arab-Israeli conflict, the 1980 Falklands War between the United Kingdom and Argentina, and briefly during the 1991 Gulf War.
