Complete history of American naval attack aircraft. Includes development of A4D Skyhawk, A3J Vigilante and A6 Intruder. From Gravity Bombs to ňúSmart Weapons’. Many stunning photographs. Will appeal to both aviation and naval historians. Strike from the Sea: U.S. Navy Attack Aircraft from Skyraider to Super Hornet 1948-Present celebrates carrier-based air-to-ground attack aircraft which first came into operation during the Korean War, reached maturity during Vietnam, and are deployed today throughout the world. Well-known author and naval aviation authority Tommy Thomason not only explores such legendary Navy aircraft as the A4D Skyhawk, A3J Vigilante, and A-6 Intruder, but also the critical role of the aircraft carrier itself, for without these massive nuclearpowered floating airfields, U.S. Navy attack aircraft would have no sea-borne bases from which to operate. Armament from gravity bombs to today’s GPS-guided smart weapons
