The A-4 Skyhawk, introduced in 1956, was an attack aircraft that served with the U.S. Navy and Marines for more than forty years. With its low-altitude bombing system, it was capable of delivering nuclear weapons, a crucial characteristic for early Cold War attackers. The Skyhawk saw extensive service in Vietnam, carrying out light attack duties during the early years of the conflict (though more than 350 were ultimately lost in Southeast Asia).
