"Strike fighters are a lass of aircraft that combines a ground attack role with air-to-air capabilities. One of the earliest examples was the Italian Fiat G.91, nicknamed 'Gina.' In 1953, NATO declared a competition for a new strike fighter design for its members. The G.91 won, though only Italy, West Germany, and Portugal ended up using it; the British, French, and Americans pursued their own designs. The G.91 notably served in the Portuguese Colonial War from 1961-1974. The last G.91s were retired in the 1990s."
