The A-37B Dragonfly is a ground attack aircraft available to South Korea in Wargame: Red Dragon.

HistoryEdit

The Cessna A-37 Dragonfly is a two-seat, twin-engine, straight-wing light strike platform. Nicknamed the "Super Tweet," the A-37 was developed out of the T-37 trainer. First flown in 1963, the A-37 saw service as a close air support, FAC(A), helicopter escort and night interdiction platform during the Vietnam War. The A-37B was introduced in 1967, and featured a strengthened air frame to allow for harder turns and improved airframe life, as well as newer, more powerful General Electric engines. South Korea purchased the A-37B starting in 1976.

OverviewEdit

Red DragonEdit

The A-37B Dragonfly is a relatively inexpensive light strike platform available to South Korean and BLUFOR decks. The A-37B is unique in that it carries two types of air to ground munitions, HEAT cluster bombs to deal with armored targets, and the Mk. 82 high-explosive bomb for dealing with lightly armored vehicles and infantry. Rounding off its weapon compliment is a pair of AIM-9B missiles, giving the type the ability to attack helicopters in the area it is operating, or to defend itself to some extent against enemy fighters.

The A-37B's main drawbacks are its lack of ECM, lack of a gun, and that although it does carry an air-to-air missile compliment, it is not particularly powerful. This leaves the A-37B vulnerable to long range SAMs and AAMs, as well as attacks by enemy fighters at close range. However, given the A-37's primary role as a strike platform, these drawbacks are not prohibitive. A fighter escort should be considered when scrambling the A-37B.
