   Bemidji Daily Pioneer (Newspaper) - November 21, 1968, Bemidji, Minnesota                                Higk Flying Bronco Busts Viet Cong By CARL KOVAC NEA Staff Correspondent Ohio-iNKA a new war horse in America's military three-lowed Hying stallion that has the speed and agility ot a steeplechaser, the strength of a Clydesdale and ttje docility, as far as its "riders" are concerned, of a kid's pony. And it's already kicking up its hooves in Viet- nam. It's the OV-10A Bronco, the lirsl airplane designed, devel- oped and produced specifically for the kind of war now being fought in Southeast Asia. Small herds of these versatile c o n n t e r-insurgency aircraft have been delivered to Air Force and Marine Corps units and more are on the way. Until the Bronco galloped into the scene, the air war over V i e t n a m was being waged by flocks of diverse attack fighters and bombers, helicopters, light spotter planes and vintage fly- ing machines like the AC-47 (Puff, the Magic Dragon I. a design which first saw the light of day as the DC-3 back A I5HACE OF BKO.N'COS. decked out in Air Force gray (bottom) and Marine Corps green, undergo a final shakedown flight before being shipped off (o war.

Jet fighters are too fast lor escort duty: light planes aiv too vulnerable and armed heli- copters, once leaving a troop- carrying flight, are too slow to catch up again after engag- ing a ground target. The Bronco can perform a variety of other missions, in- cluding close air support, vis- ual and photo reconnaissance, and flare, cargo and para- chute drops. It is designed to live with the troops.

It operates on automotive or avi- ation gas or je't fuel, which- ever happens to be available. It has been little more than two and one-halt months since the first OV-10A arrived in the war zone, but tales of its rug- gedness are already making their way back to the I'niti-d Slates. "We heard of one pilot who flew into a tree while making a low pass." a company offi- cial reports. "He returned to his base on .me engine part of the tree hanging from the wing und landed sateh." An official Marine Corps communique calls Uin Bronco "several aircraft wrapped in one." and lauds it for having "truly proven its value in combat." Engineers say the Bronco could be converted into an eight-passenger civilian air- craft without changing the plane's basic design by adding larger engines and enlarging the fuselage. .lust how much a basic or modified dove ver- sion of the military design would cost hasn't been worked out. but the present hawk models run about One of these days the Bronco may take its place in civilian life, popping in and out of small airports, enhanc- ing somebody's corporate im- age. But for the time being, it's serving double duty in the Air Force and the Marines. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
