Fairchild Republic A-10 DVD.

The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is a close support aircraft that could kill tanks and survive. It was designed during the Cold War to counter the massive Soviet tank buildup in Europe. The A 10 Thunderbolt was designed around the 30mm GAW rotating "Gatling Gun" that fired depleted heavy uranium bullets that could easily destroy tanks on the modern battlefield. Thus, the A-10 Warthog was born.
