The A-10 Thunderbolt II, nicknamed Warthog, is a ground support aircraft used by the U.S. Army during the Oil Crisis and the Day of the Consortium.[2]

OverviewEdit

Winchester, we're out of here!
- A-10 Thunderbolt II

Designed for close-air support, the A-10 Thunderbolt II can target any ground unit on the battlefield with four Maverick air-to-ground missiles. But even with its strong armor and duel engines, this plane is painfully slow.

In High Treason the plane no longer has limited ammunition for its anti-tank missiles, and will engage enemy vehicles on the way to its designated target two at a time. It will also strafe its target area with its GAU-8 rotary cannon, and can be upgraded to drop two unguided bombs on its destination.

BackgroundEdit

The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is an American single-seat, twin-engine, straight-wing jet aircraft developed by Fairchild-Republic in the early 1970s. The A-10 was designed for a United States Air Force (USAF) requirement to provide close air support (CAS) for ground forces by attacking tanks and other armored vehicles, and other ground targets with a limited air defense capability. It was the first USAF aircraft designed solely for CAS.

The A-10 was designed around the GAU-8 Avenger, a heavy rotary cannon that forms the aircraft's primary armament. (It is, to date, the heaviest rotary cannon ever mounted on an aircraft.) The aircraft's hull incorporates over 1,200 pounds (540 kg) of armor and was designed with survivability as a priority, with protective measures in place which enable the aircraft to continue flying even after taking significant damage.

UpgradesEdit
