In the deep area, synchronized joint or single service attacks extended the direct engagement to enemy combat formations and their supporting activities and installations in the enemy's rear for the purpose of delaying or impeding enemy movement or of degrading his combat capabilities.

So acute was the Air Force's desire for such a plane that it accepted a Navy design, the Vought A-7A. The Air Force version, redesignated the A-7D, first flew on April 5, 1968, and became operational in Vietnam in October 1972. The Air Force, again at General McConnell's direction, also began developing its own tactical aircraft design-the A-X.
