Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Grumman A-6E Intruder
Type Attack aircraft
Author(s) Alexis Bory
--aircraft= A-6E
Status Beta
Supports Mid-air refueling

The A-6 Intruder is an American twin jet-engine, mid-wing attack aircraft built by Grumman Aerospace. In service between 1963 and 1997, the Intruder was designed as an all-weather replacement for the piston-engined A-1 Skyraider medium attack aircraft. As the A-6 was slated for retirement, its precision strike mission was taken over by the now retired F-14 Tomcat equipped with LANTIRN, which has subsequently passed on the role to the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.

The A-6E variant is available for FlightGear, and is capable of air-to-air refueling and landing on aircraft carriers. It features a high-quality 3D cockpit, avionics, and exterior model and includes Tactical Air Navigation.
