The A-1 Skyraider, also known as the “Spad” after a World War 1 French fighter, was a versatile aircraft that saw service from the late 1940s to the early 1980s. Its unique and rugged design made it well-suited for low altitude attack, and it was widely used in conflicts such as the Korean and Vietnam Wars. The Skyraider was operated by various military branches, including the United States Navy, United States Marine Corps, and United States Air Force, as well as other countries like the British Royal Navy, French Air Force, and Republic of Vietnam Air Force. It underwent several updates and improvements during its service, with seven different versions produced, ranging from the AD-1 to the AD-7. The AD-5 version featured a widened design that allowed for two crew members to sit side-by-side, and the AD-5N was a four-seat night-attack version. The AD-6 was an improved version of the AD-4B with enhanced low-level bombing equipment.
