Hobby 2000 72017 Douglas A-4M Skyhawk US Marines 1:72 Scale Model
The Douglas A-4M Skyhawk is a single seat subsonic carrier capable attack aircraft developed for both the US Navy and USMC during the early 1950s. The delta wing and single engined Skyhawk was designed and produced by the Douglas Aircraft Company and later McDonnell Douglas.
The Skyhawk is a relatively lightweight aircraft with a maximum take off weight of 24,500 pounds and has a top speed in excess of 670mph. The aircraft's 5 hardpoints support a variety of weapons- bombs, missiles and other munitions. It also has capability to carry a nuclear weapon using a low altitude bombing system and a "loft" delivery technique.
The A-4 was originally powered by Wright J65 turbojet engines; from the A-4E onwards, Pratt & Whitney J52 engines were used. Skyhawks played key roles in the Vietnam War, Yom Kippur War and Falkland War.
Sixty years after the aircraft's first flight in 1954, some of the 2,960 produced still remain in service with the Argentine Air Force and Brazillian Navy.
