    A-4E Skyhawk Attack Aeroplane

    The A-4E version represents a matured development of the Skyhawk airplane. It underwent major upgrades, including a new Pratt & Whitney J52-P-6A engine with 8,500 lbf (38 kN) of thrust, a strengthened airframe with two additional weapon pylons (for a total of five), and improved avionics featuring TACAN, Doppler navigation radar, radar altimeter, toss-bombing computer, and AJB-3A low-altitude bombing system. Many were later upgraded with the J52-P-8 engine, boasting 9,300 lbf (41 kN) of thrust.

    This aircraft proved its quality in the final stages of the Vietnam War, being utilized by both carrier-borne naval attack squadrons and land-based Marine attack squadrons. While phased out from combat units in the late 1970s, it remained in reserve and training duty. The Skyhawk gained fame as an agile adversary platform when stripped of all attack equipment. It was capable of providing rigorous dogfight training for F-14 Tomcat pilots at the Top Gun US Navy Fighter Weapons School.
