The "A-7E Corsair II" was a carrier based light attack aircraft. It was combat-proven during the Vietnam conflict as it flew more than 90,000 missions ranging from precision strikes in the Hanoi area to close support of engaged troops in the south. During the war with Iraq it supplied close air support for coalition forces. The A-7Es had the lowest combat loss rate of any naval tactical aircraft serving in the Vietnam area.
