.:Hobby Boss:. Douglas A-4E Sky Hawk #released

The A-4 Skyhawk was designed by Douglas  in response to a U.S. Navy call for a jet-powered attack aircraft to replace the older A-1 Skyraider. Douglas opted for a design that would minimize its size, weight, and complexity. The result was an aircraft that weighed only half of the Navy's weight specification. It had a wing so compact that it did not need to be folded for carrier stowage.
     A-4E, including new Pratt & Whitney J52-P-6A engine with 8,400 lbf (37 kN)) of thrust, strengthened airframe with two more weapon pylons (for a total of five), improved avionics, with TACAN, Doppler navigation radar, radar altimeter, toss-bombing computer, and AJB-3A low-altitude bombing system. Many later upgraded with J52-P-8 engine with 9,300 lbf (41 kN) thrust;499 built.

The hardest version of the Viggen to replace was definetely the photo reconnaissance version, which for decades was one of the best reconnaissance platforms in the world. Some say it’s also the best looking Viggen version. Finally, it’s available in a very limited edition from Tarangus!
