The A-4 Skyhawk was designed in response to a U.S. Navy call for a jet-powered attack aircraft to replace the older A-1 Skyraider. Douglas opted for a design that would minimize its size, weight, and complexity. The result was an aircraft that weighed only half of the Navy's weight specification. It had a wing so compact that it did not need to be folded for carrier stowage. The A-4M was the dedicated Marine version with improved avionics and a more powerful J52-P-408a engine with 11,200 lbf (50 kN) thrust. It featured an enlarged cockpit and a new IFF system. Later on it was fitted with the Hughes AN/ASB-19 Angle Rate Bombing System (ARBS) with TV and laser spot tracker. 158 were built in total.
