This airplane could complement the Douglas A-l Skyraider and Douglas A-4 Skyhawk, in carrier with the sunshine assault squadrons and the Douglas A-3 Skywarrior and North American A-5 Vigilante in use with the heavy assault squadrons. The army sought after an assault airplane which may fly quicker, greater, and hold a much bigger and extra subtle number of guns over a better distance than the venerable A-l Skyraider or the light-weight A-4. one of many functions that the recent layout was once to add was once the power to fly low-level missions at evening and below all climatic conditions. This requirement was once thought of to be of paramount importance.In February of 1957 Grumman acquired sort Specification 149 in addition to Boeing, Douglas, Vought, Martin, Lockheed, Bell and North American Aviation. All of those compa­nies offered their proposed designs and through December of 1957 the contest have been diminished to Douglas, Grumman and Vought. On 30 December 1957 the military introduced that the Grumman airplane company, led via the layout crew composed of Lawrence M. Mead, Robert Nafis and Bruce Tuttle, had received the layout competition.sharingmatrix letitbit zero

Above some critical velocity the contact load is such that the yarns fail and only a small © Woodhead Publishing Limited, 2012 Key issues in body armour: threats, materials and design 9 amount of energy is extracted from the projectile. But the projectile is progressively decelerated and the ensuing layers accelerated until yarn failure does not occur. Assuming the yarns do not immediately fail, a tensile wave propagates along the yarns away from the impact point, and in this way some energy is absorbed from the projectile.

In effect this marks a transition from a net-like behaviour to a penetration and absorption behaviour.
