The A-37 Dragonfly for sale by Cessna started life as a 34 inch
longer version of their T-37 Trainer. Other modifications included more
powerful engines and beefed up wings to accommodate additional fuel
capacity tip tanks, and wing pylons. In time a machine gun was added to the
aircraft along with upgraded avionics, a beefed up air frame, and
heavy duty landing gear. The end result was a relatively low cost
utility observation and light attack aircraft that was well suited to
its role and well liked by its crews.
The aircraft engines produce a loud whining sound, earning it the nickname "super tweet."
The A-37 distinguished itself in Vietnam, particularly in the roles of ground
support and helicopter escort. The aircraft could carry
rockets, a wide variety of bombs, and 1,500 rounds of ammunition for
its machine gun. U.S.A.F. A-37 aircraft flew some 161,000 combat missions, with a
loss of 22 aircraft.
The A-37 Dragonfly was exported to a number of countries around the world and some
are still flying to this date. Over 600 A-37 Dragonfly aircraft were sold.

The second and third pictures below are of the A-37 Dragonfly for sale built by Walter Mansilla. Walter writes: "Greetings from Guatemala. In my country the A-37 Dragonfly is used in the
air force. For that reason I built one made from fiberglass with a 58" wing span and a 48" fuselage. There is a O.S. 46 engine up front. This is to prove the
concept of the design. The A-37 has retractable landing gear. It flies very well and doesn't have any bad characteristics. At this time I
am finishing one with O.S. 61 engines. The new project has more details. It is painted in the colors of the Attack Squadron. In the
pictures the airplane had not yet flown. The test flight was carried out four days later."
