Combat Caught on Video : A 10 Saves my Life

A-10 Thunderbolt

Here is Combat Caught on Camera where an A 10 was called in to provide close support to Infantry.

The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is a single-seat, twin turbofan engine, straight wing jet aircraft developed by Fairchild-Republic for the United States Air Force.

It wasn’t always this way. When the last of more than 700 A-10s was built in 1984, the aircrews and maintainers who worked on this lumbering plane thought it was so ugly they called it the “Warthog.” Today, after decades of wear and tear and blood and toil, that nickname carries with it a nickname of affection and respect, even if there are still Warthog haters who can’t wait for it to retire.

Top speed: 706 km/h
Introduced: October 1977
Engine type: General Electric TF34
Manufacturer: Fairchild Aircraft
Unit cost: 11,800,000–11,800,000 USD (1994)
