In 1950 a new variant of Texan was being produced, the T-6G. Equipped with a new
variable pitch propeller, increased fuel capacity, better canopy visibility, updated cockpit
layout with improved instruments and avionics as well as a tail wheel to could be
steered. These aircraft were re-manufactured early versions of the T-6. An armed
version of this plane was devised for the Korean War and known as the LT-6G
(nicknamed the Mosquito because of its call-sign and engine sound).

6148 was one of two airborne Tactical Control Squadrons in Korea assigned to conduct
reconnaissance, control air strikes for close support of ground troops and strikes on
enemy targets. “Night Train” was one of the LT-6G aircraft specially built for this mission
with powerful radios, armed with 6 under-wing racks with triple rocket launchers and two .
30 caliber machine gun pods. The 2 squadrons, referred to as “Mosquito” flew 40,354
sorties and lost 33 men and 42 aircraft out of the 97 built.
