The A-10 Thunderbolt II was developed by Fairchild
Republic in the seventies with the purpose to create, accordingly the
needs of USAF, a powerful aircraft capable to perform close air support
missions including attacking tanks and armoured vehicles. The
Thunderbolt II is heavily armoured and exceptionally tough. It is
characterised by the two General Electric turbofan engines and the
adoption of one of the most powerful aircraft gun ever flown : the 30
mm. GAU-8/A Avenger Gatling. Thanks to its eleven underwing and under
fuselage pillars, the A-10 can carry an impressive offensive pay-load.
The A-10 was used in combat for the first time during the Gulf War in
1991 and it has showed its operational effectiveness destroying more
than 900 enemy tanks.
