The McDonnell Douglas A-4C Skyhawk is a single-seat attack aircraft developed for the United States Navy. It was first introduced in 1956 and served as a primary attack aircraft for the Navy and Marine Corps until the late 1970s. The A-4C was a variant of the A-4 Skyhawk family, which was a compact, lightweight, and versatile aircraft designed for close air support and ground attack missions. The aircraft was powered by a single Pratt & Whitney J52 turbojet engine and had a maximum speed of over 600 mph. It was armed with a variety of weapons, including bombs, rockets, and missiles, and was equipped with a cockpit that was both simple and easy to operate. The A-4C was widely used during the Vietnam War, where it became known for its versatility and ability to carry out a variety of missions. Despite being retired from active service, the A-4 Skyhawk remains a popular aircraft for military and civilian operations, including airshows and training exercises.

Douglas A-4C Skyhawk

Designed to replace the antiquated, propeller-driven AD Skyraider, the A-4 Skyhawk was first flown on June 22, 1954. Douglas exceeded the original design requirements by delivering a carrier-capable aircraft that was only half the Navy's weight specification and so compact that it did not need folding wings. The A-4 was the first to use "buddy" air-to-air refueling (an A-4 could refuel other aircraft of the same type), which was helpful when operating in remote locations where dedicated tankers were impractical. The A-4 served the US Navy until 2003 and remained the preferred warplane for the Marine Corps until the 1980s, even after the introduction of the A-7 Corsair II.
