The Corsair II is the A-7. It was designed as a replacemtn of the venerable A-4 Skyraider. There is no such thing as an A-6 Corsair, The A-6 is the INtruder nad the Electronic version (EA-6-B) is known as the Prowler. All of them were Vietnam era naval aircraft. I worked on each of them at one point or another but my first "love" as it were was and remains the A-7 Corsair, My first enlistment was with VA-86 Working on A-7-Es Hope this helps, Neil
