OV-10D+ Bronco

US attack and observation aircraft

The OV-10D+ attack and observation aircraft is a version of the OV-10A Bronco. The modification was carried out at the Naval Aviation Refurbishment Centre (NARF). The changes affected the engine, avionics, communications systems, airframe and cockpit equipment. One of the features of this modification was the installation of a new FLIR infrared system under the extended nose section, which also housed laser target designators. The tail beams were fitted with devices to protect against surface-to-air missiles. The advanced capabilities of the aircraft made it possible to perform a wide range of tasks, including ground target surveillance and guidance of attack aircraft, both during the day and at night. At the same time, the aircraft retained the function of an attack aircraft and could strike ground targets if necessary. OV-IOD+ aircraft were used by the US Marine Corps in Operation DESERT STORM in 1991.
