The RA-5C Vigilante

"Unarmed and Unafraid" by Mark Karvon

Used extensively in Vietnam, the RA-5C Vigilante performed vital reconnaissance missions. These missions usually consisted of a high speed flight over the target area prior to attack, followed by a second run after the attack to assess damage and effectiveness. The initial run was usually not too eventful; however the second run after the attack was another story. The enemy was usually expecting the second pass and wasUnarmed and Unafraid by Mark Karvon ready with antiaircraft fire and surface-to-air missiles. The Vigilante was usually accompanied by an F-4 Phantom II flying cover; however, the Vigi would routinely outrun her escort as she flew with a "clean" configuration while the Phantom usually carried drag-inducing under-wing stores. In "Unarmed and Unafraid," Mark Karvon gives us his depiction of an RA-5C Vigilante the RVAH-11 Checkertails making a high speed recon pass. The paint scheme and markings depict the aircraft as she appeared during the unit's Southeast Asia deployment aboard USS Constellation during 1971.  To view a larger image, click on the thumbnail.  Then click your browser's BACK button to return here and place your order.
