Description

The A-6 Intruder entered service in the mid-60s as ground attack carrier-based aircraft to replace outdated planes such as the propeller-driven A-1 Skyraider and the A-3 Skywarrior. The Grumman Corporation developed and designed the A-6A, based on U.S. Navy specifications, a twin jet-engine all-weather medium attack aircraft able to operate from American aircraft carriers. The so called “Intruder” was characterized by a sturdy and robust fuselage and the two seat side by side cabin configuration for the pilot and the weapons officer. The A-6E was the definitive attack version of the "Intruder" with improved avionics and attack systems, in particular in the version named TRAM, from the acronym of the laser target designation system that allowed it to be more effective to perform “all weather” missions and to be more lethal in detection and suppression of enemy targets. Thanks to its hard points under the wing the A-6E Intruder was able to load an impressive offensive armament as conventional bombs, Paveway laser-guided bombs, Harpoon anti-ship missiles, HARM anti-radar missiles. It actively participated either from ground bases or from the carriers of the U.S. Navy, to Desert Storm campaign combat missions.
