A-10 Thunderbolt II

The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is an American single-seat, twin-engine, straight-wing jet aircraft developed by Fairchild-Republic in the early 1970s.

The A-10 was designed for a United States Air Force requirement to provide close air support (CAS) for ground forces by attacking tanks, armored vehicles, and other ground targets with a limited air interdiction capability.



Det är som gjort för att skydda civilbefolkningen...

Thunderbolt II  är uppkallat efter Thunderbolt I, eller P-47 Thunderbolt, som vi känner till sedan Biggles dagar.
