A-10 Thunderbolt


In the two wars since World War II, (Korea and Vietnam) the Air Force wanted to maintain a close support aircraft that could also counter the odds with the on-growing Russian Tank forces near the West Germany's boarders. With the collapse of the USSR the A-10 was thought not to be needed for the active service, and was to be slotted for the reserves. Such thinking has changed, the A-10 proved it's importance as a close support aircraft in Desert Storm.
