A10 THUNDERBOLT II (WARTHOG) RAF BENTWATERS DIE CAST MODEL

Hobby Master  HA1313 A10 Thunderbolt II (Warthog) RAF Bentwaters

A-10 was the first USAF aircraft designed specifically for Close Air Support (CAS) . It can be described as the outcome of the experience gained in the Vietnam War and the threats of the Soviet Union armor forces during the Cold War era. The first A-10A Thunderbolt II was delivered October 1975 and deployment in March 1976.

A-10's pilot is protected by titanium armor around his seat and the canopy isa large bubble canopy which provides all-round vision. The aircraft is designed with dual engines and the self-sealing fuel cells are protected by internal and external foam . Extra titanium is used to protect some flight control system parts of the aircraft. All these insure the plane and pilot's safety from enemy fires.
