The Grumman A-6E Intruder is one of the selectable fighters from Carrier Air Wing.

Real World InformationEdit

The Grumman A-6 Intruder is an American, twinjet all-weather attack aircraft built by Grumman Aerospace. In service with the United States Navy and Marine Corps between 1963 and 1997, the Intruder was designed as an all-weather medium attack aircraft to replace the piston-engined Douglas A-1 Skyraider. As the A-6E was scheduled for retirement, its precision strike mission was taken over by the Grumman F-14 Tomcat equipped with a LANTIRN pod. From the A-6, a specialized electronic warfare derivative, the EA-6B Prowler, was developed.

In the GamesEdit

The A-6E appears in Carrier Air Wing as Mark Olson's fighter of choice, acting as the slow-but-strong fighter. It is specialized in air-to-ground combat, with most of it's weapon selection reflecting this, having little to no air-to-air weapons available.
