OV-10D Bronco USMC airplane model. The OV-10 is a short take-off and landing aircraft designed for the Marine Corps and Air Force as a Forward Air Controller and for close-air-support.  The prototype first flew in 1967.  The versatility of the design allowed the rear of the fuselage to be used to transport troops or litter patients.  The OV-10D eliminated the ability to carry troops, but added more powerful engines and night vision equipment.  The Bronco saw extensive service in Vietnam and the first Gulf War.  The OV-10 was mostly retired from U.S. military service in the late 1990s with a very few remaining in testing programs.  Two of them were reactivated for use in Iraq and Syria in 2015 and although they performed well no further reactivations or deployments were made.
