The A77 Corsair was a carrier based light attack aircraft designed to take the place of the A74 Skyhawk. If the Corsair looked like a shorter version of the F78 Crusader its because the Navy based its design request on Crusader's successful supersonic track record. The A77 was given its popular name by manufacturer Chance Vought in honor of the legendary WWII F4U Corsair.
