The Cessna Bird Dog was a liaison and observation aircraft used by the American Army, who at the time were looking for a single engine all metal aircraft to replace the wood and fabric covered aircraft of the era, which had short service lives. The Cessna Bird Dog first went into service in the Korean War in 1950.
