The Grumman A-6A Intruder (ICAO: A6 / WAKE: MEDIUM) is a twin jet-engine, mid-wing all-weather attack aircraft. Created in Second Life by Amok Dynamics, the aircraft was based on the real-life A-6 Intruder developed by Grumman Aerospace.

Background

In service with the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps between 1963 and 1997, the real-life A-6 Intruder was designed as an all-weather medium attack aircraft to replace the piston-engined Douglas A-1 Skyraider. The initial version of the Intruder was built around the complex and advanced DIANE (Digital Integrated Attack/Navigation Equipment), intended to provide a high degree of bombing accuracy even at night and in poor weather. DIANE consisted of multiple radar systems, an air-data computer, and the AN/ASQ-61 ballistics computer. When it worked, DIANE was perhaps the most capable nav/attack system of its era, giving the Intruder the ability to fly and fight in even very poor conditions (particularly important over Vietnam and Thailand during the Vietnam War). It suffered numerous teething problems, and it was several years before its reliability was established.[1]
