The North American OV-10 Bronco, a forward air controller aircraft, began a
90-day combat evaluation in South Vietnam.
In addition to forward air control, the Bronco's missions also included
observation, helicopter escort, armed reconnaissance, gunfire spotting,
utility, and limited ground attack. The museum acquired an OV-10A in 1991
and it is on display in the Southeast Asia War Gallery.
