The Northrop A-9A was developed in response to a US Air Force request for a dedicated Close Air Support (CAS) / ground attack aircraft capable of operating from short unimproved runways, have a long loiter time over the battlefield area, and have a relatively high cruise speed to get from the home field to the battle field. The Air Force issued a request for proposal (RFP) to 12 aircraft manufacturers. Six companies responded with specific designs and two companies were selected to build prototypes for a fly-off competition. Northrop was one company selected and Fairchild Republic was the other. The Northrop entry was designated A-9 while the Fairchild aircraft was designated A-10. The A-9A was a high wing, twin engine, single place aircraft. The plane was designed for exceptional maneuverability and had large flight control surfaces. The engines were specifically designed for the project by Lycoming. Each of the YF102-LD-100 turbofans developed 7,500 lbs. Of thrust at maximum power. Offensive firepower consisted of a 20mm “Vulcan” cannon and up to 16,000 lbs. Of ordnance carried on 10 external wing stations. The winner of the A-X fly-off would incorporate the 30mm GAU-8 cannon into production aircraft, but the gun was under parallel development during the A-X competition and wasn’t ready for flight testing during the fly-off between October and December 1972. The A-9A featured a triple redundant hydraulic system, foam filled self-sealing fuel tanks and armor plating protecting vital systems including a titanium “bathtub” surrounding the cockpit (note: an aluminum “bathtub” was fitted in the prototype). The first flight of the A-9A was on 30 May 1972 and the fly-off competition ran between 10 October and 9 December 1972. The Air Force selected the A-10 as the winner of the A-X fly-off on 18 January 1973. The two prototype A-9A’s were transferred to NASA for flight testing before being retired.
