This is another interesting ground support / light bomber. A couple of these actually took down a Vietnamese Mig in the early days of the Vietnam war.

cut and pasted : Vietnam War....In October 1965, to highlight the dropping of the six millionth pound of ordnance, Commander Clarence J. Stoddard of Attack Squadron 25 (VA-25), flying an A-1H, dropped a special, one-time-only object in addition to his other munitions Ė a toilet
