The Fairchild-Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is a distinctive-looking aeroplane designed for a very definite role. As a close air support weapon it has impressive firepower and load-carrying capability as well as high manoeuvrability, endurance and the ability to absorb punishment. With its seven-barrelled 30mm cannon in the nose and up to 16,000lb ordnance on its eleven hardpoints, the A-10 has served with distinction in both the Gulf War and over the former Yugoslavia.

This fully illustrated book tells the full story of the design, development and operational history of this important modern aircraft.
