Rockwell OV-10 Bronco

[BACK]

   

The Bronco was a purpose built COIN a/c developed from Department of Defense studies carried out between 1959-65, eventually winning the Marine Corps Light Armed Recon Aircraft specification in August 1965.  An initial batch of 271 OV-10As were delivered in  1967-68 of which 157 went to the USAF for use in the FAC role in place of O-1s and O-2s.  The a/c was retired from military service in 1994, but a number are still flying as spotters for fire-bomber operations.
