  • HISTORY ASPECTS:
    The RA-5C Vigilante, adorned with the distinctive markings of RVAH-13 "Bats," served as a crucial reconnaissance aircraft aboard the USS Kitty Hawk during the intense years of conflict in 1966. Operating at the height of the Vietnam War, the Vigilante played a vital role in providing critical intelligence through aerial reconnaissance, contributing to the understanding of enemy movements and facilitating strategic decision-making.
    Assigned to RVAH-13, the Vigilante "Bats" participated in various conflicts during its deployment aboard the USS Kitty Hawk. These missions involved high-risk operations, including overflight of heavily defended areas in North Vietnam. The aircraft's advanced reconnaissance systems and high-speed capabilities allowed it to capture detailed imagery and electronic intelligence, providing valuable information to military commanders and intelligence agencies.
    The year 1966 saw the Vigilante "Bats" engaged in combat operations, supporting U.S. efforts in Southeast Asia. Its missions included reconnaissance over the Gulf of Tonkin and areas along the Ho Chi Minh Trail. The Vigilante's versatility and capability to operate at low altitudes made it a formidable asset for surveillance and intelligence gathering during this critical period of the Vietnam War.
    Now, aviation enthusiasts can own a meticulously crafted 1:72 scale model. This replica faithfully captures the unique markings and design of the aircraft, showcasing its role in reconnaissance missions during the challenging days of 1966. For collectors and history buffs alike, this model serves as a tangible tribute to the bravery of the "Bats" and the significant contribution of the RA-5C Vigilante to the history of naval aviation. Display it proudly and honor the legacy of this iconic aircraft and its dedicated crew.
