Title: Grumman OV-1 Mohawk

The OV-1 was originally designed to a joint Army/Marines specification for an observation/attack aircraft to replace the L-19 Birddog. The Marines withdrew and the aircraft became a wholly Army aircraft but was subjected to political influence and compromise throughout its life. It first flew in 1959 and around 380 were eventually built. It was retired from US Army service when its reconnaissance role was taken over by satellites and more capable aircraft.
