The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is a single-seat, twin turbofan engine, straight wing jet aircraft developed by Fairchild-Republic for the United States Air Force (USAF). Commonly referred to by the nicknames "Warthog" or "Hog", its official name comes from the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, a World War II fighter-bomber effective at attacking ground targets. The A-10 was designed for close air support (CAS) of friendly ground troops, attacking armored vehicles and tanks, and providing quick-action support against enemy ground forces. The Thunderbolt first flew on May 10th 1972 and entered service with the United States Air Force in October 0f 1977 and continues in service. A total of 716 were produced during a production run from 1972-1984.
This model represents an A-10A with the 74th Tactical Fighter Squadron "Flying Tigers" of the 23rd Fighter Wing during 1989.
The model is made by Air Force One under the brand name of Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. The model has no landing gear and is displayed as if in flight.
This is a worthy addition to your diecast aircraft collection.
