Good lookin’ little aircraft. Wonder what could be done with modern avionics in an A-1 Skyraider or an OV-10 Bronco for a counter-insurgency platform...

I for several years thought a dozen T-37’s and A-37’s out in the Arizona desert should have been put into service while this was settled.

The contract called for a non-developmental, off the shelf platform. The AT-6 wasn't an off the shelf platform.

That being said I am suffering through an SNC contract that they have phonged away through poor engineering and integration. Some of the biggest problems have been in areas they touted during the bid phase as setting them apart from their competitors. Over a year behind schedule at this point.
