  • The Real Reason Why You Cant Kill the A-10 Warthog

    10:03

    Known for an ability to keep flying after taking multiple rounds of enemy machine gun fire, land and operate in rugged terrain, destroy groups of enemy fighters with a 30mm cannon and unleash a wide arsenal of attack weapons, the A-10 is described by pilots as a “flying tank” in the sky -- able to hover over ground war and provide life-saving close air support in high-threat combat environments.

  • Nothing Can Kill the A-10 Warthog

    6:38

    The U.S. Air Force has all but given up on retiring the A-10 Warthog close-air-support jet. Instead, the flying branch is upgrading the tough ground-attackers so they can fight and survive in high-intensity combat.

    The Air Force had hoped to begin retiring its 281 A-10s starting in 2015. But Congress blocked the effort. Now the A-10 is safe even as the Air Force considers retiring other plane types.

    A short film that the Air Force tried to suppress reveals why axing the A-10 is a bad idea.

    The U.S. Air Force more than once has practically begged Congress to allow it to retire its roughly 280 A-10 Warthogs, those venerable twin-jet attackers that saved countless soldiers’ lives in Iraq and Afghanistan—and which more recently returned to Iraq to help battle Islamic State.

    A short film that the Air Force tried to suppress reveals why axing the A-10 is a bad idea.
    Grunts in the Sky leaked eventually
    Literally for decades—since well before the 1991 Iraq war—the U.S. Air Force has been trying to get rid of the A-10 Warthog close air support aircraft. The A-10’s spectacular performance in four wars in Iraq—twice—plus Kosovo and Afghanistan has frustrated these efforts.
    In those conflicts, the A-10 outperformed all other U.S. aircraft in killing tanks and other vehicles and supporting infantry engaged in combat-at both very short—“danger close”—and longer ranges.

    The A-10 has also excelled in combat search-and-rescue for downed pilots—such as for the pilot of the F-117 stealth fighter shot down in the Kosovo war—and in battlefield interdiction against conventional forces with modern air defenses, as well as the destruction of those enemy air defenses and shooting down enemy helicopters.

    Official Air Force cost data show the A-10 to be the cheapest combat aircraft in its inventory to operate, notwithstanding an expensive program to give the A-10 new wings and electronics to remain viable until 2030.

    And yet, the Air Force command has persisted, deciding in 2013 and again in 2020 that it would exploit flattening budgets to “divest” all, or part, of its inventory of active and reserve A-10s.


    The flying branch in 2013 argued that the new F-35 stealth fighter is an adequate replacement for the low- and slow-flying Warthog—and the Air Force should spend its money buying F-35s instead of maintaining the A-10s and their unique 30-millimeter cannons.

    In fact, the F-35 is too fast, too flimsy and years away from front-line service. But the Air Force has its mind made up. And as part of its campaign to kill the A-10, the flying branch in 2014 declined to release a short documentary that its own public affairs practitioners produced about the Warthog’s lifesaving missions in Afghanistan.

    It’s a healthy reminder that the A-10 is an awesome warplane. Its pilots love it. And so do the ground troops who depend on its support.
    Why did the Air Force suppress the A-10 docu when it had no problem releasing a similar short film about the F-16? Maybe it’s because there are hundreds or even thousands of A-10 pilots and maintainers who are passionate about saving their plane. And as former Air Force gunship pilot Bob Seifert pointed out recently, “The USAF is harder on internal ideas than it is on evil insurgents.”
    Fortunately, Congress in 2014 had none of the Air Force’s nonsense. Legislators required the flying branch to keep the A-10s. The Air Force in its 2021 budget proposal asked again to begin shuttering A-10 squadrons. It’s unclear whether Congress will approve the cuts.

    Revealed: The A-10 Warthog Is Preparing For Its Biggest Upgrade In Over A Decade

    A new large-area cockpit display and additional weapons are all in the grand plans to get the A-10 ready for higher-end missions.

    The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is a single-seat, twin turbofan engine, straight wing jet aircraft developed by Fairchild-Republic for the United States Air Force.

    The aircraft can send weapons to different targets with one button push on one pass, whereas before it took a lot of pilot workload. A-10 pilots can employ 500-pound-class GBU-38 or 54 or 2,000-pound class GBU-31 Joint Direct Attack Muntions (JDAM) and the aircraft will inform the pilot if they can all hit their intended targets on a single run.

  • The True Reason Why the F-22 Raptor Can Kill Anything in the Sky

    10:10

    Typically, the Blue F-22s will slaughter the enemy from long-range. Indeed, as Fesler notes, if an enemy aircraft has survived to enter the “merge”—or visual range combat—and finds a Raptor, something has gone terribly wrong. That usually leads to an intensive debrief to understand what went wrong. Indeed, all of the pilots I spoke to unanimously told me that the debrief is the most important part of a training sortie. Nonetheless, F-22 pilots train extensively for a visual range fight. “We usually train full-up versus full-up,” Crash said. “We assume that a Western-trained F-22 is going to be the most challenging threat we’re going to go against.”

  • Why the A-10 Thunderbolt Might Be Americas Best Weapon of All Time

    10:05

    One of the most iconic airplanes in the U.S. Air Force’s flying inventory is the A-10 Thunderbolt, also affectionately known as the “Warthog.” Designed to mow down rows of invading Soviet tanks during an anticipated World War III, the A-10 has served in most of America’s post–Cold War conflicts, from the Balkans to Afghanistan. A new Pentagon contract to manufacture new wingsets promises to keep a minimum of 280 aircraft flying into the foreseeable future, even as questions persist whether the A-10 can survive over modern battlefields.

    In wartime the A-10 was meant to operate alongside U.S. Army Apache attack helicopters in a so-called Joint Air Attack Team (JAAT) to advancing Soviet armor. JAAT doctrine called for Apaches to suppress enemy air defenses, identifying and threats to the A-10. A-10s would then swoop down at a thirty-degree angle, hosing down Soviet forces with their Gatling guns. In hindsight, this would not often have worked, as Soviet forces would have advanced too quickly for the interservice teamwork to stop the enemy in time.

    10:14

    The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II (Warthog) is a single-seat, twin turbofan engine, straight wing jet aircraft developed by Fairchild-Republic for the United States Air Force (USAF). It is commonly referred to by the nicknames Warthog or Hog, although the A-10's official name comes from the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, a World War II fighter-bomber effective at attacking ground targets.[5] The A-10 was designed for close air support (CAS) of friendly ground troops, attacking armored vehicles and tanks, and providing quick-action support against enemy ground forces. It entered service in 1976 and is the only production-built aircraft that has served in the USAF that was designed solely for CAS. Its secondary mission is to provide forward air controller – airborne support, by directing other aircraft in attacks on ground targets. Aircraft used primarily in this role are designated OA-10.

    The A-10 was intended to improve on the performance of the A-1 Skyraider and its lesser firepower. The A-10 was designed around the 30 mm GAU-8 Avenger rotary cannon. Its airframe was designed for durability, with measures such as 1,200 pounds (540 kg) of titanium armor to protect the cockpit and aircraft systems, enabling it to absorb a significant amount of damage and continue flying. Its short takeoff and landing capability permits operation from airstrips close to the front lines, and its simple design enables maintenance with minimal facilities. The A-10 served in the Gulf War (Operation Desert Storm), the American led intervention against Iraq's invasion of Kuwait, where the A-10 distinguished itself. The A-10 also participated in other conflicts such as in Grenada, the Balkans, Afghanistan, Iraq, and against Islamic State in the Middle East.

A new Pentagon contract to manufacture new wingsets promises to keep a minimum of 280 aircraft flying into the foreseeable future, even as questions persist whether the A-10 can survive over modern battlefields.

  • Heres why the A-10 Warthog is Irreplaceable

    10:13

    No matter how advanced smart bombs get, and no matter how stealthy and quick an aircraft can become, the A-10 has one factor that guarantees it can never truly be replaced: its gun.

    These days, pretty much any warplane can drop guided munitions with pinpoint accuracy, but what makes the A-10 so special is one of the only weapons used by the US Air Force that isn’t precision-guided: the 30 mm GAU-8/A Avenger gun with 1,150 incendiary rounds.

    The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is a single-seat, twin turbofan engine, straight wing jet aircraft developed by Fairchild-Republic for the United States Air Force (USAF). It is commonly referred to by the nicknames Warthog or Hog, although the A-10's official name comes from the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, a World War II fighter-bomber effective at attacking ground targets. The A-10 was designed for close air support (CAS) of friendly ground troops, attacking armored vehicles and tanks, and providing quick-action support against enemy ground forces. It entered service in 1976 and is the only production-built aircraft that has served in the USAF that was designed solely for CAS. Its secondary mission is to provide forward air controller – airborne support, by directing other aircraft in attacks on ground targets. Aircraft used primarily in this role are designated OA-10.

    The A-10 was intended to improve on the performance of the A-1 Skyraider and its lesser firepower. The A-10 was designed around the 30 mm GAU-8 Avenger rotary cannon. Its airframe was designed for durability, with measures such as 1,200 pounds (540 kg) of titanium armor to protect the cockpit and aircraft systems, enabling it to absorb a significant amount of damage and continue flying. Its short takeoff and landing capability permits operation from airstrips close to the front lines, and its simple design enables maintenance with minimal facilities. The A-10 served in the Gulf War (Operation Desert Storm), the American led intervention against Iraq's invasion of Kuwait, where the A-10 distinguished itself. The A-10 also participated in other conflicts such as in Grenada, the Balkans, Afghanistan, Iraq, and against Islamic State in the Middle East.

    The A-10A single-seat variant was the only version produced, though one pre-production airframe was modified into the YA-10B twin-seat prototype to test an all-weather night capable version. In 2005, a program was started to upgrade remaining A-10A aircraft to the A-10C configuration, with modern avionics for use with precision weaponry. The U.S. Air Force had stated the F-35 would replace the A-10 as it entered service, but this remains highly contentious within the USAF and in political circles. With a variety of upgrades and wing replacements, the A-10's service life can be extended to 2040; the service has no planned retirement date as of June 2017.

  • Fairchild A-10 Thunderbolt II AKA The Warthog, The Hog, A-10 Warthog

    Fairchild A-10 Thunderbolt II AKA The Warthog, The Hog, A-10 Warthog

    The A-10 Thunderbolt II, also affectionately known as The Warthog, The Hog, or the A-10 Warthog, was developed for the United States Air Force (USAF) by Fairchild Republic Company's OEM Team, which is now part of Northrop Grumman Corporation Aerospace Systems. The official name is based on the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, which is a World War II fighter-bomber that was effective at attacking ground targets.

    The OEM Team started with a study contract in the 1960s to develop a new aircraft for Close Air Support to protect ground combat troops, which meant the A-10 Warthog had to be survivable and rugged. Following the initial study, they developed a prototype and won the final competition to develop the A-10 Thunderbolt II.

    The Thunderbolt II was selected due to its outstanding low altitude maneuverability, survivability, mission capable maintainability, and lethality. The design features a titanium area to protect the pilot, able to withstand direct hits from high-explosive and armour-piercing projectiles up to 23 mm in size, and includes redundant flight control systems so pilots can fly to safety even after experiencing severe damage in enemy territory.

    The Warthog is a single-seat, twin turbofan, straight wing jet airplane. It is developed for attacking armoured vehicles, close air support (CAS) for ground troops, and quick action against enemy ground troops. The Warthog was tasked with improving on predecessor A-1 Skyraider's lesser firepower, so it was designed from the ground up around its 30 mm Avenger rotary cannon. Some of its key features include capability for short takeoffs and landing, which allows it to operate close to the front lines.

    The Warthog first entered service in 1976 and remains the only production-built USAF aircraft designed exclusively for CAS. Some of the key theatres where the Warthog has been used successfully include Operation Desert Storm in the 1990s and more recently in operations Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom, and the Global War on Terror. It has also supported other conflicts in the Balkans, Grenada, Afghanistan, and the Islamic State. The A-10 has been used only by the USAF, the Air Force Reserve, and the Air National Guard.

    The Warthog is much loved by its pilots and ground troops, inspiring the saying Go Ugly Early because the A-10 is often called in early to support ground combat troops. In 2016, the USAF froze plans to retire the A-10 due to Congressional opposition and the need to use the A-10 in several key deployments. The Air Force eventually announced that the beloved Warthog will remain in their inventory indefinitely.

  • DCS A-10C Tutorials - From 0 to HERO Ep9 - How to strike an objective and input Coordinates into CDU

    31:02

    In today's tutorial we shall be going over how to strategically choose a strike target and then how to mark that target using two methods. The first is a gun-ho method which involves using the TAD and setting a markpoint from there. The second way is by entering coordinates via the CDU. We will also cover what weapons to bring along and then actually strike the targets.

    Regarding the GBU-38 situation, what happened is that I dropped 2 GBU-38s on two separate tanks. When I looked down to check the impacts, I saw 2 explosions on the second tank and I mistook that for both bombs hitting the same tank, thus I thought I messed up. But in reality what happened was that the first bomb was still gliding towards the first target, and the second bomb got to the second target faster than the first since I dropped the second bomb closer to the objective. The double explosion was simply the bomb exploding first, and then the tank blowing up second. So all went well there, but seemed confusing at first. Also the server was lagging a bit at the time so there's always that playing a part in it.

  • HOW Trump Love the A-10 Warthog and F-35 Stealth Fighter

    4:10

    The U.S. Air Force (USAF) has to hold on to the A-10 Warthog attack aircraft President Trump told airmen in South Korea on Jun. 30, 2019.

    As reported by Air Force Times, during his visit to Osan Air Base after his visit to the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea, Trump cheered plans in the Pentagon’s budget to buy 78 more F-35s, 24 new F/A-18s and eight F-15EX fighter jets, before pivoting to the Warthog.

    Trump also gave a hat tip to Sen. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., who flew A-10 Warthogs in the USAF and has consistently advocated for keeping the airplane.
