(O)A-37 Dragonfly

The A-37 Dragonfly is a ground attack aircraft, developed on the basics of the military Cessna T-37 trainer. The A-37 has wing pods, external fuel pods on the wing tips, modified cockpit avionics, jet seats, 20mm gatling canon, other engines (J85-GE-17A turbojet). A derivative of the A-37 is the OA-37B which is used for observation missions.
The A-37 was a cheap and efficient airplane to counter the growing guerrilla activities. It is also used by special forces operations. The A-37 was used intensively during the Vietnam War. It was easily to fly because American pilots were already trained on the T-37.
 

577 aircraft have been manufactured for the US Air Force, Guatemala, Columbia, Dominican Republic Uruguay and other countries. In 1992 the A-37 was withdrawn from US service. The A-37 is still used by countries like Guatemala and Honduras.
