The OV-1 Mohawk was designed to meet an Army and Marine Corps need for an observation and attack aircraft that could outperform the Cessna L-19 Bird Dog. The Mohawk's mission would include observation, artillery spotting, air control, emergency resupply, naval target spotting, liaison, and radiological monitoring. The Navy specified that the aircraft must be capable of operating from small "jeep" escort class carriers.

The Mohawk first flew on April 14, 1959, with service deliveries beginning in 1961. The Air Force objected to the arming of the Army’s Mohawks, with the result that in 1965, a Pentagon directive forbade the arming of Army Mohawks. Fit with advanced sensors, the Mohawk proved to be a valuable observation and surveillance aircraft.

The Mohawk was fast and maneuverable, with a top speed of 425 mph. It served in Operation Desert Storm, and was retired from service in 1996.

The last OV-1 Mohawk was built in 1970 after a ten-year production run. In Vietnam they were used for photo reconnaissance, and infra red surveillance.
