The flying tank.
Who said Warthogs can't fly
Nice. Thank 🌹
One of my favorite planes. So ugly it's beautiful.
Love the A10 also!
The perfect single mission plane. Retiring it will result in more body bags.
+Sven L. It was created because the US didn't have a close air support plane during the Vietnam War.
What an aircraft
Look at all those hardpoints.It's a weapons system with wings. The gun is centerline, so the nose landing gear is off center.Really a monster machine.I'm happy to get to see her in CAS action at least weekly. Those pilots have heavy nards that clang.
+Eric Poe Plus that titanium seat. Built to inflict serious damage.
+Eric Poe and, it can carry more ordnance than a B-17.
This plane was specifically built to counter Soviet tanks and armor. In the European area in case of a invasion into western Europe. It can take a beating and keep going like its predecessor the P 47 Thunderbolt.
I work at an air to ground range where they come and play regularly. Mostly CAS, as you can imagine, but also the hone their targeting skillz on our strafe pits, scored bullseye bomb targets, and lgb & jdam targets. I also pit them against my full-scale RC up-armored GMMWVs. You read that right. Sure they kill some, but occasionally I drive away to die another day.
It's a basically a Gatlin Gun airfoil that flies.
A-10 Thunderbolt II Brrrrrt! 30 MM
What a bomber!!
That looks cool O:D
+Zack Harris the most beautiful ever…
They don't make them like this anymore! Built too last. Super Warthog
Just one awesome Tank Buster
