9781849087551: A-6 Intruder Units of the Vietnam War (Combat Aircraft)

Designed in the years following the Korean war and then manufactured for over 30 years starting in 1960, the A-6 quickly became the most capable attack aircraft in the US Navy's stable. The first squadron, VA-75, made its initial deployment directly into combat in south-east Asia in 1965, and, over the next eight years, ten US Navy and four Marine Intruder squadrons would conduct combat operations throughout Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. After initial problems and a high loss rate, the type proved itself beyond all doubt as the Naval services' best night and foul-weather platform, particularly during the region's notorious monsoon season, which could ground almost all other in-theatre aircraft due to heavy rains and low visibility. The A-6 Intruder became a true classic of naval aviation over the skies of North Vietnam, with 14 of its crews being honoured with the second highest decoration in Naval service, the Navy Cross. The cost was high as 69 Intruders were lost in combat to all causes during the war. This work tells the complete story of these aircraft in combat during the Vietnam War.

About the Author:

Rick Morgan is the author of two previous books on Naval Aviation history (including Intruder: The Operational History of Grumman's A-6 for Schiffer in 2005) and more than 20 historical articles on the subject of Naval Aviation. Twice named 'Contributor of the Year' by the editorial staff of The Hook - The Journal of Carrier Aviation, Rick is a retired US Navy lieutenant commander with more than 2300 hours of flight time to his name, principally in EA-6B, A-4 and A-3 type aircraft. He also has more than 450 carrier-arrested landings to his name, and flew 41 combat missions during Operation Desert Storm in 1991. He currently works in the aviation industry.

Review:

Summing up, this title is a true "must have" for all modern aviation enthusiasts. - Marco De Montis This has to be one of the best titles to date within the series, with accounts from aircrews themselves who flew missions over 'the North'. The profile artwork is stunning and certainly gives some inspiration for those with a few 1/72 Fujimi kits in the stash. A stunning work and well worth the cover price. It's great to see a previously little covered aspect of the Vietnam air war. - Airfix Model World If you have any interest in U.S. Navy aircraft during the Vietnam War, and especially if you intend to build a model of an A-6 Intruder during that period, I recommend that you add this softcover book to your library. Written by one of its pilots who quotes other pilots, it's an unfailing, intense history of what it felt like to be an Intruder pilot during the Vietnam War. - IPMS/USA To recommend to any fan interested in the Vietnam War. - aerostories.org
