In 1967 the USAF requested a new close support aircraft. On February 15, 1975 Fairchild delivered the first A-10s. The A-10 is a cantilever low wing monoplane of all metal construction. The enclosed cockpit is well forward of the wings and the bullet proof windshield protects the pilot along with a titanium bath tub structure. The A-10 was designed for primitive areas so that it can offer short term response against enemy vehicles.

Fairchild A-10A Thunderbolt II

Designed to counter criticism that the US Air Force wasn't serious enough about close air support, the A-10 Thunderbolt II was first flown on May 10, 1972. The Thunderbolt II is a single-seat attack aircraft used to protect ground forces from tanks, armored vehicles and other ground targets. Nicknamed "Warthog," the A-10 is highly maneuverable at low speeds and low altitude and is capable of short take-offs and landings. It is designed for easy maintenanceómany of its parts are interchangeable between the right and left side and it can operate from bases with limited facilities. The A-10 is expected to remain in service until 2028 or beyond.
