T-28 Trojan

T-28 Trojan

The T-28 was a basic trainer that was built for both the Air Force and Navy. Three versions were ordered by the U.S. military. The T-28A was used by the U.S. Air Force. The T-28B Trojan was used by the U.S. Navy and served as a trainer from 1952 until 1984. While its basic purpose was a trainer, it was used during the Vietnam War for counter insurgency missions. The T-28C was also used by the U.S. Navy and had an arrester hook for carrier landings. The T-28 replaced the SNJ.
