About the actual machine
The A-4 Skyhawk is a ship-based attack aircraft that has built a new era with light exercise performance and high weapon loading capacity.
It was developed as a successor to the U.S. Navy’s AD1 Skyraider in the age, and was deployed and operated in 1956.
The main wing of the delta wing is adopted, and the engine is equipped with one J65 turbojet.
Although the maximum speed was not so fast, about 670 mph, it was excellent in short-distance takeoff and landing performance and mobility.
The wingspan was less than 8m, so it could be mounted without folding the wing tip even when operating on an aircraft carrier, and its total length was 12m, making it a compact size.
The A-4F model is equipped with a Pratt & Whitney J52 engine on the engine and a bump on the back with additional avionics equipment.
This was the last type of A-4 operated by the US Navy.
