In 1952, the Navy contracted with NAA to build the T-28B. The "B" came equipped with the mighty Wright Cyclone R-1820, 1425 hp engine, Hamilton Standard 3-blade propeller, belly mounted speed brake, and many other changes and improvements. 489 "B" models were built and used from the middle 50's to the middle 80's.
In addition to the "B" model, the T-28C was built for the Navy starting in 1955. The T-28C is equipped with a tail hook, a smaller diameter propeller, and other minor changes to allow aircraft carrier landings. 299 "C" models were manufactured with production ending in 1957.
