The OV-10B was manufactured for West Germany as a target-tug aircraft. The OV-10B[Z] had a GE J-85-GE-4 turbojet engine rated at 2,950 lbst mounted above the wing on struts, above the centerline of the aircraft. This increased speed by 100mph, halved the takeoff roll, and tripled the rate of climb although development problems led to this not seeing much use. The OV-10B was essentially an OV-10A with no weapons, no sponsons, and a glass greenhouse dome replacing the rear door, which was used by the tow operator. The rear seat was also removed. Six OV-10Bs and twelve OV-10B[Z]s were ordered, and served with Germany from 1970 until the early 1990s.

For basic information on the OV-10A from which the OV-10B was derived, check out the OV-10A technical page.
