HISTORY ASPECTS:
In 1967, the A-1H Skyraider of Attack Squadron 25 (VA-25) embarked on the USS Coral Sea for what would become its last combat mission. VA-25 was part of Carrier Air Wing 15 (CVW-15) and was deployed to the waters off Vietnam during the Vietnam War. The A-1H Skyraider, a rugged and versatile single-seat attack aircraft, had been a mainstay of US Navy and Marine Corps aviation since the Korean War, known for its ability to carry a wide array of ordnance and endure punishing combat conditions.
During its final combat mission, the A-1H Skyraider operated in the demanding and hazardous environment of Vietnam, providing close air support to ground forces, conducting armed reconnaissance, and attacking enemy targets. VA-25 flew numerous sorties, delivering ordinance on enemy positions, supply routes, and infrastructure in support of US and allied ground operations. The A-1H Skyraider's exceptional endurance and firepower made it a valuable asset in the fight against North Vietnamese forces and their Viet Cong allies.
After completing its final combat mission, the A-1H Skyraider continued to serve in various roles within the US military until its retirement from active service. Despite being replaced by more modern aircraft, the Skyraider left an indelible mark on military aviation history, earning a reputation as a reliable and effective close air support platform. Its contributions during the Vietnam War and other conflicts cemented its place as one of the most iconic aircraft of its era, revered by pilots and ground crews alike for its ruggedness and combat effectiveness.
With accurate detailing and authentic markings, this 1:72 scale model pays homage to the bravery and sacrifice of the pilots and crew who flew the Skyraider into harm's way, supporting ground forces and delivering firepower where it was needed most. Whether displayed on a shelf, desk, or in an aviation collection, this replica serves as a tribute to the A-1H Skyraider's enduring legacy as a stalwart of naval aviation during the Vietnam War.
