The North American T-28 Trojan was a piston-engined military trainer aircraft used by the United States Air Force and United States Navy. T-28As were built from 1950 - 1953 and was the first model of the T-28. It was powered by an 800 hp Wright R-1300 with a 2 blade constant speed propeller. Besides its use as a trainer, the T-28 was successfully employed as a Counter-insurgency (COIN) aircraft, primarily during the Vietnam War.
