First flown in 1972, the A-10 Thunderbolt II was named after the famous P-47 Thunderbolt fighter-bomber of World War II. Its ungainly appearance, however, has earned it the name “Warthog”. Its ability to operate in rugged tactical airfields, its superior maneuverability at low speeds, its ability to absorb punishment from ground fire explain the reason for its unconventional planform. Not to mention it mounts a humongous 30mm rapid firing Gatling gun—the most powerful cannon ever flown. This A-10 is painted in modern non-specular gray paint with the markings of the 23rd Tactical Fighter Wing, 74th Tactical Fighter Squadron.
