Greatest close air support bird ever! I would've enlisted if they would have let me fly these bad boys!

Now that's a bullet! A-10 Warthog ammo... 30 mm cannon. Didnt know what to do with the gun so they built a plane around it. Outstanding.

Officially named the A-10 Thunderbolt II, this unique aircraft is known as the "Warthog" by those who operate and maintain it. Some say it is an ugly airplane but when called upon to deliver close air support by those in need, it is the most beautiful airplane in the sky. The A-10 first saw action during the Gulf War and has also been used in Operation Iraqi Freedom and the War in Afghanistan. This print features the A-10 firing on an enemy position in the mountains of Afghanistan.
