Grumman A-6 Intruder Art Prints and Drawings
The first Grumman A-6 Intruder entered service with the U.S. Navy in 1963. These were twin jet attack aircraft designed as all weather replacements for the piston-engine powered A-1 Skyraider. The crew of the Intruder included both a pilot and bombardier/navigator. The aircraft's all-weather capability, long range, and heavy payload made it an invalulable weapon of the Vietnam War, during which 84 aircraft were lost. A-6 Intruder variants (A-6A, A-6B, A-6C, and A-6E), which included the tanker version, designated the KA-6D, saw service until 1997, when their mission was taken over by LANTIRN-equipped F-14 Tomcats, and later F/A 18 E/F Super Hornets. Intruders were flown by both US Navy and USMC squadrons.

"The Intruders" by Dru Blair
This painting was originally created as the cover for Stephen Coonts' novel "The Intruders." It depicts the USS Saratoga (CV-60) in her prime during operations off the coast of Vietnam circa 1970. The head-on shot illustrates the projection of power that the Saratoga wielded during the later part of the Vietnam war, as well as the reliance on the A-6 Intruder as the Navy's primary attack aircraft during the war.

"Into The Storm" by Roy Grinnell
Roy Grinnell captures the thrill of a "Cat Shot" in this amazing work depicting an A-6 Intruder being shot from a steam catapult during Operation Desert Storm. Lightning strikes in the background, symbolic of an Intruder attack--day or night, rain or shine.
"The A-6E Intruder" print by Jim Stovall
Jim Stovall again shows his prowess with a sketch pad, this time capturing the raw power of an A-6E Intruder as she takes off--with bomb rails fully loaded--from the pitching flight deck of an aircraft carrier.
