About this item
The A-10 Thunderbolt II is one of the most distinctive aircraft in modern American military service. It is unique among modern military fighters with its straight-edge wing and primary cannon weaponry. The aircraft's primary design specification is its 30mm GAU-8 gun, a specification required by the Air Force after drawing on experiences in World War II and Vietnam. The cannon is so powerful that the aircraft must be at full throttle in order to fire a sustained burst, otherwise the A-10 would stall.
Nicknamed the Warthog, it is well liked by both pilots and ground forces alike. A meticulous reproduction of this rugged, powerful aircraft, this model is a prime choice for collectors and enthusiasts.
