A-10 Warthog

Much love from wikipedia on this ship:

“The A-10 was developed in response to the increasing vulnerability of ground attack-planes as evidenced by the large number that were shot down to small arms fire, surface-to-air missiles, and low level anti-aircraft gunfire during the Vietnam War.”

A great person once commented that shit aircraft is “like someone took a sweet ass huge gun and gave it to an engineer and said “here, build a plane around this”

    1. Actually…that’s pretty much exactly what they said.

    2. I’m confused…what do you mean by the engineer statement? That other planes are weak compared to the A-10? I now the A-10 is supposed to be strong to ground attacks.

      This is my fav plane, I had a game called A-10 tank killer. Still have it, but runs WAY too fast..
