Created especially for close air support, the Warthog got in service in 1975. Actually constructed around the 30mm GAU-8 Gattling weapon, the A-10 can also bring tremendous weapons loads under its wings and fuselage, consisting of AGM 65 Radical rockets. A highly survivable aircraft, the A-10 has redundant hydraulic systems supported by manual systems; it can make it through direct hits by armor piercing rounds. It flew 8,100 sorties throughout Desert Storm and has actually seen action in Afghanistan and was a key battleground weapons system throughout Operation Iraqi Liberty. Functions: In-depth interior with seated pilot and boarding ladder, ECM pod, cluster bombs, napalm tanks, Radical rockets and centerline drop tank, decals included for LET'S ROLL.
