A10 Thunderbolt II Attack Aircraft, also commonly known as A10 Warthog, is a close air support fighter developed by Fairchild Republic for the United States. It is a single-seater, twin turbofan engine and a straight wing jet aircraft. Slow at 439 mph, it compensates the lack of speed with heavy titanium armor. This deadly aircraft obliterates the opposition with 30mm GAU-8/A Avenger Gattling Cannon. It can also act as a fighter, bomber and an anti-tank operator. It got its name from WWII fighter plane P47 Thunderbolt.
