The single-seat, twin turbofan tank killer developed by Fairchild-Republic for the USAF is a real life example of the old saying “Walk quietly, and carry a big stick”! Lovingly referred to as “Warthog” or “Hog”, who’s official name originated from the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, an extremely effective fighter bomber ground attack aircraft used during the second world war.
The A-10 was designed for one job, and one job only…close air support (CAS) of friendly ground troops, by providing quick-action support against enemy ground forces, attacking armored vehicles, tanks, enemy positions and anything that the brass wanted to eliminate expeditiously. The Warthog entered service in 1976 and remains the only production-built aircraft that has served in the USAF inventory that was designed solely for CAS, with a secondary mission of providing service as a Forward Air Controller - airborne (FAC-A)
