The 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 requirement to provide close
air support (CAS) for ground forces by attacking tanks, armored vehicles, and
other ground targets with a limited air interdiction capability. It is the first
U.S. Air Force aircraft designed exclusively for close air support.
The A-10 was designed around the GAU-8 Avenger, a heavy automatic cannon which
forms the aircraft's primary armament. 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.
