Britain. By this time, the 109E had already proved to be a competent fighter aircraft in the skies above Poland, France and the low countries. It met its match over England and was

The A4-B was the second variant of the Skyhawk and one of the first to see combat in the skies over Vietnam, where it was involved in the early stages of the conflict, with later version serving
throughout the campaign. Due to its small size, the A4 was able to operate off the smaller World War Two era Essex Class carriers, but it could still carry a useful payload to its target.
