The A-7 Corsair II is a high wing, single engine, subsonic, carrier-capable light attack aircraft. Its name was derived from Vought’s F4U Corsair. Produced between 1964 and 1983, more than 1,500 were built. The design was based on the Vought F-8 Crusader and was meant to replace the Douglas A-4 Skyhawk. The A-7D variant was built specifically for the USAF, to fill the need for a specialized subsonic fixed wing aircraft suited for close air support in South Vietnam. The USAF A-7D Corsair II featured a powerful Allison TF41-A-1 turbofan engine, a new avionics package, a computerized navigation/weapons delivery system, and an M61A1 rotary cannon. 459 were built.
