An Underdeveloped Airplane
Labels: WWII history; Pacific theater
Any others you'd like explained?
The Navy uses (or used, anyway) the former and the Marines use the latter for both the Harrier and the Osprey. I don't know whether the "V" in OV-10 (the Bronco) means fixed-wing observation aircraft (to differentiate from observation helicopters), or VSTOL observation aircraft, or something else entirely.
