The Grumman A-6 Intruder was a twin jet-engine, mid-wing attack aircraft built in the United States by Grumman Aerospace. In service with the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps between 1963 and 1997, the Intruder was designed as an all-weather replacement for the piston-engined A-1 Skyraider medium attack aircraft.
This model is the Grumman A-6E with Black Panthers colorscheme.

CH5(DualRates) ––> start Bombs Drop-Sequence
CH6(knob) ––> 0% –> 50% flaps | 75% –> 100% airbrakes on wingtips
CH7(smoke) ––> ONLY WHEN KNOB = 0% : fold main wings and open canopy
CH8(mode) ––> UP is gear up | MIDDLE is gear down | DOWN is gear down + airbrakes + arresting hook deployed
Please test ALL moving parts on the ground to get familiar with them BEFORE you start your first flight.
Be sure that the CH7 is on "THR. HOLD" before you take off!
very nice. This particular squadron (VA-35) was on the Nimitz with me in the 70's.. and yes, I am ex navy.. this is well done.. flies about as expected. Even did the nuclear release fools loop with this (or, as we called it, the over the shoulder shot).. again, nicely done
That's about as sweet as it gets. Flying approaches are a blast! I get a puff of tire smoke on touchdown..never saw that before, but pretty cool sheet. Nice work on the spoilerons and wingtip speedbrake affectation. Thanks for sharing this gem, from whatever planet you're from...ha.ha
