Possessing one of the most sophisticated avionics suites and the ability to fly extremely well at slower speeds, the A-6 Intruder carried out precise bombing missions no other aircraft could during the Vietnam War. Introduced to service in February 1963, the US born Intruder was a two-seat all-weather attack aircraft that reached a maximum speed of 684 mph and could carry up to 18,000 pounds, including nuclear weapons, conventional and guided bombs, and drop tanks.

Grumman A-6E Intruder

Designed to meet a US Navy requirement for an all-weather carrier-based attack/strike aircraft, the A-6 Intruder was first flown on April 19th, 1960. The A-6 was equipped with a CRT that allowed for low-level flight in all weather conditions, a characteristic that helped it remain the US Navy and US Marine Corps' principle night and all-weather attack aircraft through the 1990s. With its large, blunt nose and lean tail, the A-6 was given a variety of unflattering nicknames, including "Double Ugly" and the "Drumstick." The A-6 served in Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, Somalia and Bosnia and was ultimately replaced by the F-14 Tomcat.
