The Douglas A-4 Skyhawk (ICAO: A4 / WAKE: MEDIUM) is a single seat carrier-capable attack aircraft. Created in Second Life by Outcast Aerospace Industries and powered by Shana Carpool Aircrafts, the aircraft was based on the real-life A-4 Skyhawk, produced for the United States armed forces by Douglas Aircraft Company, and later by McDonnell Douglas.

Background

The real-life Douglas A-4 Skyhawk (originally designated A4D under the U.S. Navy's pre-1962 designation system) was a delta winged, single-engined, lightweight aircraft with a maximum takeoff weight of 24,500 pounds (11,100 kg) and has a top speed of more than 600 miles per hour (970 km/h). The aircraft's five hardpoints support a variety of missiles, bombs and other munitions and were capable of delivering nuclear weapons using a low altitude bombing system and a "loft" delivery technique. The A-4 was originally powered by the Wright J65 turbojet engine; from the A-4E onwards, the Pratt & Whitney J52 was used.[1]
