The Douglas A-4 Skyhawk was designed by the famous designer Ed Heinemann at Douglas at the nineteen fifties. The US Navy wanted a light attack aircraft and Heinemann designed the smallest, lightest and cheapest jet design possible. The design is a delta winged, single-engined aircraft with no wing folding and very simple systems. It was used by the US Marines Corps and the US Navy used the type on its carriers, including in the Vietnam war.  Skyhawks also played key roles in the Yom Kippur War, and the Falklands War. Exported in small numbers to e.g Argentina, Israel, Singapore, New Zealand and Brazil. More 3,000 planes were manufactured until beginning 1979 in various versions.
