A-6 Intruder by Lyle462 A-6 Intruder by Lyle462
This was a commission for a former Navy aircrew member who ejected from an A-6 (and lived to tell about it).

Oh man, wow. This is beautiful. This is my favorite Navy plane. I love Intruders. Seriously, it's beautiful.

Thank you! I always liked the A-6 in any variant. Just a tough old bird for sure!

I agree! Shame that the best all-weather attacker the Navy had was replaced with an F/A-18 with bombs and hope.

Yeah, the change saved money, but at the same time, neutered the Navy's anti-ground ability. The Hornet was meant to be a fighter. It had some compromises made so bombs could be strapped to it, and compromises never end well...

There once was a saying about aircraft that were meant for air-to-air superiority. "Not a pound for air-to-ground." Doesn't apply anymore eh!
