North American Aviation developed the T-28 Trojan in the late 1940s as a replacement for the T-6 Texan in the pilot training role. The aircraft was adopted into USAF service as the T-28A powered by the 800hp Wright R-1300 engine. The Navy adopted the T-28B which was powered by the 1,425 horsepower Wright R-1820 engine. The Navy also adopted the modified T-28C that featured shortened propeller blades and a tailhook for carrier qualification training. When the US entered the Vietnam war, the USAF developed a counter-insurgency (COIN) aircraft using surplus T-28Bs from the Navy and converting them to USAF specifications to create the T-28D. With over 1,900 aircraft produced, the T-28 not only trained new pilots but also qualified pilots for carrier operations and served as a versatile combat aircraft.
