Replacing the venerable A-4 Skyhawk for carrier operations in the US Navy, the A7 Corsair II is a subsonic, non-afterburning strike aircraft. Featuring large wings and several underwing pylons, this jet is outfitted to carry a wide variety of guided attack munitions on any mission. Thought it was not faster than its predecessor, the A7 would boast increased range and nearly double the payload in combat. Demonstrating these characteristics for the first time in 1968 and delivered later that same year, production of the Corsair II lasted until 1976 with 459 completed aircraft. 

 

Primarily used as a single-seat tactical support aircraft, the A7 used an automated targeting system in conjunction with advanced weapons systems such as the AGM-65 Maverick and AGM-62 Walleye. Onboard, the primary 6 wing pylons would permit up to 15,000 lbs of ordinance and were supported by an AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air missile on each side of the forward fuselage stations. Additionally, the A7E variant could take on an external FLIR imaging pod for use in low light situations over the battlefield. Overall range in combat was 1,200 miles and it could attain up to 650 mph with weapons onboard, provided by the Allison TF-41-A-2 non-afterburning turbofan. 

 

Serving onboard the USS Midway carrier, this A-7E Corsair II was one of the later models to be taken in by the VA-93 “Blue Blazers” squadron. Previously, this group had operated both the A-7A and A-7B variants since 1969, replacing the later A-4F Skyhawk which had was their mainstay on the carrier. Die-Cast version has an accurate weathered paint scheme, etched panel lines, pad printed decals, and opening canopies with pilot figurines. Also includes optional deployed or retracted landing gear with rotating nose wheel, full kit of weaponry, and metal display stand. Measures 7.75”l with a 6.25” wingspan at 1:72 scale. 

 

  • Features a high-quality weathered paint scheme, etched panel lines and pad printed decals that reflect A-7E #160544 during its service for the VA-93 Blue Blazers.
  • Antennas, reflective lights, and surface details have been carefully reproduced.
  • Includes deployed or retracted landing gear with rotating nose wheel, metal display stand, and opening canopy with pilot figurines that can be placed inside
  • Comes with a full set of weaponry, including AGM-88 HARM air-to-ground missiles, MK-82 freefall bombs, AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air missiles, and fuel tanks.
  • Measures 7.75”l with a 6.25” wingspan at 1:72 Scale.
  • Highly collectible and officially licensed.
