About the Aircraft

The A-10 Thunderbolt II is a close air support attack aircraft that has been in operation since 1977. Its main role is to attack enemy ground forces and ground weapons ahead to the advance of ally ground forces. The A-10 can be equipped with weapons such as missiles weighing up to 7 tons. The A-10C, which has undergone renovations such as a glass cockpit, made its first flight in 2005. The A-10 is still operated by the United States Air Force now, and some are also operated by the state air force. The Maryland Air National Guard is also one of the units operating the A-10C, and in 2021, the A-10C belonging to the 104th Fighter Squadron of the 175th Wing was unveiled with a special marking to commemorate the 100th anniversary. It attracted attention with the retro coloring scheme when the unit was founded.
