The Grumman A-6 Intruder was an American, twin jet-engine, mid-wing attack aircraft built by Grumman Aerospace. In service with the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps between 1963 and 1997, the Intruder was designed as an all-weather medium attack aircraft to replace the piston-engined Douglas A-1 Skyraider.

In the early 1990s, the A-6E was upgraded to A-6F standard gaining new engines, avionics, and electronics after the NATF was cancelled. A specialized electronic warfare derivative, the Northrop Grumman EA-6B Prowler (currently EA-6C Prowler), is also in service as of 2012. The A-6 is currently being replaced by the F-35C Lightning II.
