In 1995, 18 surplus A-7Es and TA-7Cs were provided to the Royal Thai Naval Air Division, where they equip 104 Squadron
of 1 Wing, based at U-Tapao. Two additional A-7Es were acquired for spares sources. These were the RTND's first combat jets.
The RTND does have a carrier which operates a couple of squadrons of ex-Spanish
AV-8S Harriers, but the A-7Es are strictly land-based.
The A-7 has been retired from service with the Royal Thai AF.
