Vought A-7 Corsair II

Alvaro L.
The Ling-Temco-Vought A-7 Corsair II is a carrier-based subsonic light attack aircraft design that was introduced to replace the A-4 Skyhawk in US Naval service and based on the successful supersonic F-8 Crusader aircraft produced by Chance Vought. The A-7 was one of the first combat aircraft to feature a head-up display (HUD), doppler-bounded inertial navigation system (INS), and a turbofan engine. It initially entered service with the United States Navy during the Vietnam conflict and was then adopted by the United States Air Force to replace their A-1 Skyraiders that were borrowed from the Navy as well as with the Air National Guard. The A-7 enjoyed the fastest and most trouble-free development period of any American combat aircraft since the second world war. #A7 #Aircraft #Airplane #Attack #Bomber #Corsair #II #Jet #Light #Ling #LTV #Navy #Plane #Temco #Vietnam #Vought
