The T-28 Trojan was the basic trainer for both the Navy and Air Force. Like the T-6 Texan that it replaced in the early 50s, many were converted to ground attack variants and saw action in Vietnam.


The T-28 Trojan, manufactured by North American Aviation (NAA), was designed as a piston-engined military trainer aircraft.

The T-28 was flown for the first time, designed to replace the T-6 Texan, on September 24 1949. The first of two prototypes was flown on September 26, 1949. Found satisfactory, a contract was issued and between 1950 and 1957. There were a total of 1,948 aircrafts built. A number of these aircraft were later supplied to Air Forces in South America and South East Asia particularly in Japan, Argentina, Thailand, Laos, Philippines, and Brazil.

The Trojan, as it became known, had a frameless canopy and a Wright R-1300 engine that, when combined, and gave it a top speed that often exceeded 280 mph. First orders of 266 planes in 1950 eventually grew to 1,194. After it became evident that the Air Force had found a very successful design, the United Sates Navy and Marine Corps adopted it as well. Two years later, 489 standardized versions (T-28Bs) were ordered by the Navy, mainly differing from the T-28A in its use of the more-powerful Wright R-1820-86 engine. Following this, 299 T-28Cs were produced, which were fitted with an arrester gear for carrier-deck landing training.
