Intruder ugly as hell? Wow... all I have to say is "Abooovv... naptın hocam!?" .

It is a prettier Su-25, with more systems to play , and much more than that too.

Also yes, it has a pretty good payload capability.

you cant compare, its an older design to the su25.

the Su25 is more of a A10 counterpart, meant for CAS and tank busting.

Yeah, my sentence is a bit unclear, I compared it's outside looks and "very broad role" as subsonic ground attack aircraft.

But as far as exactly roles go, A-6 was more of a striker/interdictor than a CAS aircraft, and had many all-weather capabilities that Su-25, and back then also the A-10 lacked.

Which is the thing that makes it so interesting for me. It seemed to have already from the late 70s: A/G nav and attack radars, an old FLIR + Laser combo on board, many funky "precision" attack modes. Apart from lacking a cannon, lotsa stuff to love on the Intruder .

A7 Corsair filled a similar role for all weather attack, except its got a Cannon and single seat.

Ye the su25 and a10A lacked some features, but they were for a specific type of ground attack, they were better armored ans more survivable against taking hits. Expensive avonics not needed, becasue for the CAS or tank busting role, losses would be more expnesive to replace.

its apples vs oranges comparison TBH.


Personally for interdiction im more interested in the F111

I would love to play with its unique TFR radar (kind of 3D display).

Early renders of iirc an A6E TRAM were posted quite some time ago. Though it's no doubt a long term thing both in the sense that like 3 projects at least are in front of it, and the unknown state of ED ground radar that it needs.

Well, beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder! As far as I am concerned, it has a tail hook, folding wings and a refueling probe. There is nothing more needed to qualify it as an exceptionally beautiful flying machine. Well, maybe one more thing....it was made by Grumman!
