Titles: North American OV-10 Bronco No’s 1 and 2

Designed to meet a 1960’s US Marines requirement for a light armed reconnaissance aircraft (LARA) the OV-10 was one of two designs selected for a fly-off competition. First flown in 1964 the OV-10 subsequently won the fly-off against the competing Convair Charger aircraft and was placed in production.

114 were built for the US Marines and 157 were built for the USAF, both sharing the OV-10A designation. Other variants also served with other foreign air arms including Venezuela, Thailand and Germany.
