Officially named the A-10 Thunderbolt II, this unique aircraft is known as the "Warthog" by those who operate and maintain it. Some say it is an ugly airplane but when called upon to deliver close air support by those in need, it is the most beautiful airplane in the sky. Literally an airplane built around the powerful GAU-8 Avenger rotary cannon, the A-10 can deliver a devastating amount of firepower against the most armored or hardened targets. Additionally the airplane carries 1200 lbs of armor making it able to absorb alot of punishment and keep on flying. The A-10 first saw action during the Gulf War and has also been used in Operation Iraqi Freedom and the War in Afghanistan.
