The Skyraider made its first flight in March 1945, and for the next 12 years Douglas continually improved it through several versions. Douglas delivered 3,180 Skyraiders to the Navy, many of which were used during the Korean War or Vietnam War. It was the only aircraft of its time capable of delivering 8,000 pounds of bombs. France was the second country to use it during Indochina and Algeria wars with 113 units received.
