When the U.S. Navy called for a new light attack aircraft to replace the Douglas A-4 Skyhawk in the early 1960s, the competition that followed was stiff. Top players including Douglas, North American, Vought, and Grumman were all in the running, with Grumman’s pint-sized A-6 Intruder derivative, in particular, being something of a historical aviation oddity.
