The A-6E Intruder is an all-weather, two-seat, subsonic, carrier-based attack aircraft. It was put into production in early 1963 and was delivered to the United States Navy throughout the 1960s and 1970’s. It saw extended action in the Vietnam War, and participated in strike operations in Libya and the Persian Gulf during Operation: Desert Storm. Its career spanned an astounding 34 years and developed a reputation as a workhorse of the navy, favoring a heavy weapons load and excellent reliability.

DescriptionEdit

The A-6E Intruder is notable for having an amazingly durable airframe and can withstand a substantial amount of damage in combat. It has the ability to fly low, underneath radar, and was called to execute solo missions during the conflict in Vietnam to do precision strike operations deep inside enemy territory. As the aircraft would be called upon in later decades it would also be upgraded to carry laser-guided munitions and advanced navigation equipment. It was eventually phased out of service, with its retirement on Feb. 28, 1997 from the U.S. Navy.

TriviaEdit

  • The YK color in AC5, Leasath color in ACX and C02 in ACJA was used only for two A-6E Intruders (№161667 from VA-36 "Roadrunners" and №155620 from VA-65 "Tigers", USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71), tail code "AJ") in Operation Desert Storm (1991).
  • In some of the games is has appeared in, the. A-6E Intruder is unique, being one of only few aircraft to carry external gun pods instead of an internal gun, like most other fighters. This characteristic allows it to carry two guns instead of one, at the cost of less accuracy, as the guns are placed far from the aircraft's centerline.
