Description Extended Information
 
Armour Collection B11B920 USAF Fairchild A-10 Thunderbolt II Ground Attack Aircraft - 45th Tactical Fighter Squadron, Indiana Air National Guard "Hoosier Hogs", Grissom AFB, May 1994, "D-Day Anniversary" (1:48 Scale) "Obsolete weapons do not deter."
- British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher

The A-10 and OA-10 Thunderbolt IIs are the first Air Force aircraft designed specifically for close air support of ground forces. They are simple, effective, and highly survivable twin-engine jet aircraft that can be used against all ground targets, especially tanks and other armored vehicles. The first production A-10A was delivered to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, AZ., in October 1975.

The aircraft can carry a wide variety of ordnance under its wings and nose, loiter on-station for long periods of time, and fly over a wide combat radius, making it an ideal warrior on today's battlefield. In the Gulf War, A-10s, with a mission capable rate of 95.7 percent, flew 8,100 sorties and launched 90 percent of the AGM-65 Maverick missiles used in-country.

This particular 1:48 scale replica of an A-10 Warthog was flown by the 930 OG 45 Tactical Fighter Squadron ("The Hoosier Hogs") commemorating the 50th Anniversary of D-Day. Sold Out!
