SCARY!!! Here’s New Super A-10 Warthog Shows Its Crazy Ability

The A-10 Thunderbolt 2, affectionately nicknamed “The Warthog,” was developed for the United States Air Force by the OEM Team from Fairchild Republic Company, now a part of Northrop Grumman Corporation Aeronautics Systems Eastern Region located in Bethpage NY, and St. Augustine FL. Following in the footsteps of the legendary P-47 Thunderbolt, the OEM Team was awarded a study contract in the 1960s to define requirements for a new Close Air Support aircraft, rugged and survivable, to protect combat troops on the ground. This initial study was followed up by a prototype development contract for the A-X, and a final flyoff competition resulting in the selection of the A-10 Thunderbolt 2.

While the A-10 Warthog is surely a child of the Cold War, this ‘child’ seems to have a place in the hearts of US service members that makes it nearly indispensable on the battlefield. The venerable A-10 Thunderbolt has been a mainstay of the Air Force’s fleet for decades, forming the backbone of the Air Force’s close air support capability. Despite its age, the #NewsuperA-10warthog – as it is affectionally known by military personnel – is unlikely to leave service anytime soon.
