The Ling-Temco-Vought A-7 Corsair II is a carrier-based subsonic light attack aircraft introduced to replace the US Navy's A-4 Skyhawk, initially entering service during the Vietnam War. The Corsair was later adopted by the USAF to replace the A-1 Skyraider, F-100 Super Sabre and F-105 Thunderchief. The aircraft was also exported to Greece in the 1970s, and Portugal and Thailand in the late 1980s.
 
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 INS (Inertial Navigation System) and a turbofan engine.
 
This package includes the A7-E, A-7D and A-7H Corsair II models in ten paint schemes with an impressive feature list.

Aircraft information
 
The A-7 offered a plethora of leading-edge avionics compared to contemporary aircraft. This included data link capabilities that, among other features, provided full 'hands-off' carrier landing capability when used in conjunction with its approach power compensator (APC) or autothrottle. Other notable and highly advanced equipment was a projected map display located just below the radar scope. The map display was slaved to the Inertial Navigation System and provided a high-resolution map image of the aircraft's position superimposed over TPC/JNC charts. Moreover, when slaved to the all-axis autopilot, the INS could fly the aircraft 'hands off' to up to nine individual waypoints. Typical inertial drift was minimal for newly manufactured models and the inertial measurement system accepted fly over, radar, and TACAN updates.
 
Production of Corsairs continued through 1984, with a total of 1,569 aircraft built. The A-7 Corsair has the distinction of being the only United States single-seat jet fighter-bomber of the 1960s that was designed and built for, and deployed directly into, the Vietnam War.
 
A-7D Corsair II
 
Version built for the USAF, with one Allison TF41-A-1 turbofan and a single 20mm M61 Vulcan Gatling cannon. The AN/APN-153 navigational radar in earlier models was replaced by the AN/APN-185 navigational radar, and the AN/APQ-116 terrain following radar in the earlier A-7B/C was replaced by the AN/APQ-126 terrain following radar. 459 examples were built.
 
A-7E Corsair II
 
Naval carrier-capable equivalent of the A-7D; the AN/APN-185 navigational radar in the earlier A-7D was replaced by the AN/APN-190 navigational radar, and the AN/APQ-126 terrain following radar in the earlier A-7D was replaced by the AN/APQ-128 terrain following radar. 529 examples were built.
