• Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II: 1972 to date (all marks) (Owners' Workshop Manual)

    Dubbed 'Warthog' - or just 'Hog' - by those who fly and maintain it, the Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is the world's undisputed close air support attack jet. As tough as it is ugly, it has built a fearsome reputation as a tank buster and infantry killer in conflicts around the globe, and its GAU-8 Avenger 30mm cannon strikes fear into the hearts of all unlucky enough to be on the wrong side of it.he A-10 was clutched from the jaws of retirement by the 1991 Gulf War. At the time of the conflict, the United States Air Force was making plans to shed it's A-10 fleet, citing obsolescence and redundancy. As the ensuing conflict showed, nothing could have been further from the truth, and no other airframe could have provided the US and Coalition commanders with the sort of forward air control, close air support, combat search and rescue, and tank busting capabilities that the Hog did. Since then the A-10 has delivered capabilities to battlefield commanders in the Balkans (1990s), Afghanistan (2001 onwards) and the second Gulf War (2003 onwards), and Libya (2011). A-10s have flown around 11 per cent of Operation Inherent Resolve sorties (striking IS targets in Iraq) since combat operations began in August 2014.

  • A-10 Thunderbolt II (Warthog) Systems Engineering Case Study - Close Air Support (CAS) Aircraft

    This is one of a series of systems engineering case studies prepared by the Air Force Center for Systems Engineering. This case study analyzes theA-10A Thunderbolt II, manufactured by Fairchild Republic Corp. between 1975 and 1984. It was specifically designed as a Close Air Support (CAS) aircraft. It was named after another aircraft manufactured by Republic Aircraft, the P-47 Thunderbolt of WW II fame, but is commonly referred to by its nickname, "Warthog", due to its unusual appearance. The A-10, which has survived several attempts of program cancellation and early retirement, is now projected to operate until 2028, well beyond its original requirement. The A-10 has several configurations including the original A-10A, the A-10B, a two-seat version designed for all-weather/night attack and pilot training (only one was produced), the OA-10A, used for forward air controller (FAC) missions, and the recent A-10C, an upgraded version of the A-10A.The study provides a wealth of technical information about the aircraft and its complex history.The Department of Defense is exponentially increasing the acquisition of joint complex systems that deliver needed capabilities demanded by our warfighter. Systems engineering is the technical and technical management process that focuses explicit...

  • A-10s over Kosovo: The Victory of Airpower over a Fielded Army as Told by the Airmen Who Fought in Operation Allied Force - Warthogs in Battle

    In the spring of 1999, NATO engaged in a precedent-setting air campaign over Serbia and Kosovo known as Operation Allied Force (OAF). This event marked a milestone for air-power, as it was, arguably, the first time airpower alone was decisive in achieving victory in combat. By the end of the conflict, in June 1999, America and its allies had mounted a monumental effort to achieve the immediate goals of halting ethnic cleansing in Kosovo and providing for the return of hundreds of thousands of refugees. Ground forces, introduced following the end of the air campaign, have subsequently been employed to secure the peace. Several books have already been written about OAF, though not as many as might have been expected given the implications for NATO and airpower that came out of that conflict. Those that have been written focus primarily on the strategic level, the events, diplomacy, and decisions by senior military and political leaders that led to the conflict and determined its conduct. This is not that kind of book. This is about the other end of the spectrum as told by those that flew and fought at the most basic level during the war—the A-10 pilots of the 40th Expeditionary Operations Group (EOG). This book's objectives are to include firsthand accounts by those who participa...

  • Avenger Wrath: Warthog in Afghanistan

    Avenger Wrath is the story of a Hog Driver and his ride during the War in Afghanistan, operating out of Bagram Airbase with the beautiful, if deadly Afghan Mountain range as a backdrop. The A-10 saw almost constant use in Afghanistan, proving itself yet again, as formidable and capable weapons platform. This revised and updated version of the book, has become more poignant as the F-35 has the chance to prove that it can take on the A-10s role. The A-10 is due to stay in service until at least 2022, with life extension, maybe until 2040. Fitted with the GAU-8 Avenger a 30mm cannon, designed to cut through tank armour was found to be just as good at tearing through the thick mud walls of compounds were the Taliban often took refuge in to mount ambushes on coalition troops. It has survivability like no other aircraft currently in operation and has brought its pilot back in a state that would have caused other aircraft to have crashed. Follow this high-octane story based on real operations and get an exciting insight into an amazing aircraft. Note: This title has become the victim of malicious reviews
