You know that:

  • The Thunderbolt was developed in the late 1970s based on a US Army requirement to supply heavily armed aircraft capable of low-altitude battlefield operations, tank destruction, bunker busting, and high survivability of ground fire ?
  • The official designation is OA-10, but in the Air Force the nickname Warhog is most commonly used ? 
  • The first deployment occurred during Operation Desert Storm, when the aircraft flew 8,100 missions destroying 987 tanks, 926 artillery batteries, 501 armored vehicles and 72 bunkers ?
  • The landing gear legs retract fully into the fuselage but remain partially extended to allow the aircraft to land on its belly even when damaged by ground fire ?
  • The pilot is seated in a 770 kg titanium tub which protects him from 37 mm anti-aircraft guns ?
  • The aircraft is equipped with a rotary cannon with a rate of fire of 6000 rounds per minute ?
  • Thanks to its extremely high accuracy, 80% of the missiles at a distance of 1800 m hit a circle with a diameter of 5.2 m ?
  • Firing the A-10 is not cheap, since a 2-second burst costs about 1 600 € ?
  • After modernization, Thunderbolts will fly until 2035 ?
  • The upgraded aircraft are equipped with probably the best night vision system in the world, combining visual perception with surround sound ?
