It's interesting to wonder what could have been if the A-6F had been produced since it brought a new radar that would have allowed the A-6 to carry AIM-120s along with being fitted with F404 engines which no doubt would have improved the thrust-to-weight ratio.

Multirole kills diversity


I know A6 isn't supposed to fight MIgs. you mistook what i meant. Self defending against interceptors thats closing on your trail isn't trying to play an F4. its simply entails evasive maneuvers or firing back weapons in self defense purpose. I simply said in that regard A7 is probably better suited.

and afraid of Mig15's? when the A6 went into service well after the korean war. the threat at its initial service would have been Mig19's and Mig21's ranging from day fighter Mig21F13's to the radar equipped Mig21PF. Depending on the intruder variant added, A6E is certainly within the realm of Mig21BIs and Mig23 and given the A6E's long service life can lead well into the era of Flankers and fulcrums.

I'll pick up the tomcat for sure event though I'm a rotorcraft guy, but there's just something about this one that makes me want it even more.

I know a guy who was a crew chief for one. He spoke very very highly of it.

Sorry you didn't convince me. I still prefer The D (I'm talking about tomcats of course!) as next HB module.

Regards
