About the A-4E Skyhawk – Subsonic Light Attack Aircraft:
Developed for the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps in the early 1950s, the A-4 Skyhawk played key roles in the Vietnam War, the Yom Kippur War, and the Falklands War. Capable of carrying a payload equivalent to that of a B-17, the A-4 could deliver nuclear weapons using a low altitude bombing system and a “loft” delivery technique. The aircraft’s five hardpoints support a variety of missiles, bombs, and other munitions, and on strike missions, which was the Skyhawk's normal role, the air-to-air armament was for self-defense purposes. Notable naval aviators who flew the Skyhawk included Lieutenant Commanders Everett Alvarez, Jr. and John McCain, and Commander James Stockdale.
