The Mohawk is a high-performance, two-seat, observation aircraft made by the Grumman Corporation. The first model flew in 1959 and the last came off the production line in 1970. First deployed in 1968, it became the mainstay of Army aerial surveillance during the Vietnam War. Since then, it has always been at the forward borders with East Germany, Czechoslovakia, North Korea, and other danger spots in the world. During the 1991 Gulf War, Mohawks were credited with location and maintaining watch over Iraq's elite forces.
