Description

Colors & Markings of the A-6 Intruder in U. S. Navy Attack Squadron Service, Volume Six in the Colors & Markings Series, provides a rich, visual history of one of the most iconic warplanes to every fly with the United States Navy.  From its introduction into combat in Vietnam to the First Gulf War, the Grumman A-6 Intruder was a Navy work horse that provided the deep strike capability that the nation needed from its seaborne forces.

Grumman’s A-6 Intruder was certainly not one of the most beautiful aircraft designs ever to come off the drawing boards, but in terms of being able to perform the job for which it was intended, it may well be one of the best designs in military aviation history.  During its 34 years of service, the Intruder displayed a variety of aircraft paint schemes and markings, ranging from some of the most colourful ever applied to a combat aircraft to some that were so subdued that the various squadron and informational markings could barely be seen.
