Este avion combatio en la guerra de Vietnam.
Believe it or not, flew with a pair of these about a year ago. It was great to see them out my window.
Looks like a Bronco. But I don't remember the wings being that short. Amazing how short they are. Used in Korea and Nam correct? This and the Beast Sky Raider were the last attacking prop planes in war I think?
Friend of ours flew Broncos as artillery spotter in Vietnam.
Might be an early Alpha model, maybe even prototype. I think they went up to Delta?
They did go to delta, plus a proposed cargo variant "x"However, the wingspan of this photo, as contested by +John Rambo had me searching, as well as the canopy didn't seem to look right. I think +Reo Cruz also recognized something was off. I may have found the issue…The photo appears to be actually not of an ov-10, but a Convair Model 48 Charger. Oh well, better id next time.
They wanted to jam 5 paratroopers in the cargo hold of this beast? Wow.Props to the vectored thrustish concept.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convair_Model_48_Charger
