Vought A-7 Corsair II - "Short Little Ugly Fucker"

The Ling-Temco-Vought A-7 Corsair II is a carrier-based subsonic light attack aircraft. The A-7 airframe design was based on the successful supersonic F-8 Crusader produced by Chance Vought. It was one of the first combat aircraft to feature a head-up display (HUD), an inertial navigation system (INS), and a turbofan engine. The YA-7A made its first flight on 27 September 1965, and began to enter Navy squadron service late in 1966. The A-7 enjoyed the fastest and most trouble free development period of any American combat aircraft since World War II.
