Title: Cessna A-37 Dragonfly

First flown as the YAT-37D in 1962 to evaluate the T-37 trainer in the Counter-insurgency (COIN) role, serious development of the aircraft did not start until the escalation of the war in Vietnam in the mid 60’s.

Initially 39 examples of the T-37B were taken straight from the production line and converted as A-37A’s with more powerful engines, wingtip fuel tanks and underwing hardpoints, deliveries beginning in 1967. Cessna then developed a purpose built COIN derivative of the T-37B with a strengthened airframe, increased internal fuel capacity and in-flight refuelling capability, and more powerful engines again. 577 of this version, the A-37B, were built and they later served with the Air National Guard and several foreign air arms.
