The Douglas Skyraider was manufactured immediately after War World II. Despite its traditional piston motor, in an age when jets were spreading, the Skyraider had an extraordinary long career. It made its first flight in 1945 and it was retired from service only in 1975. It has participated to several conflicts, demonstrating its value in Korea and in Vietnam. Characterized by low speed maneuverability, it was able to transport impressive war cargo of over 3,500Kg. Perfect for ground attack missions, it was provided with robust Armour to minimize fire damages from the enemy. The Skyrider A-1H, thanks to its powerful 2,700 HP radial engine, was able to reach the max speed of 322 mph and it was able to load an impressive variety of armaments. Further more it was equipped with four 20 mm. guns
