The A-6 Intruder

Recommended Posts

hink441's posts showing some A-6 tailhooks reminded me one one of my favourite aircraft, so here are some pictures:.

This aircraft (164382) was an A-6E TRAM SWIP. It was one of the last ones made.

Do you happen to know if it was a fully upgraded bird?  I ask because SWIP introduced new weapons primarily and the Integrated Missile Panel, as well as a few other minor upgrades, but there other upgrades not under the SWIP umbrella such as the AN/ALR-67 and composite wings.

I don’t recall seeing any A-6 fleet aircraft that were not fully modified after 1990. SWIP, Plastic wings, etc etc.
