A-10C Thunderbolt II
Scale: 1:72
Product number: 03857
Number of parts:113
Length:226 mm
Wingspan:241 mm
19,99 €
A model replica of the A-10C Thunderbolt II, a very powerful low attack aircraft. Affectionately called the “Warthog” for its aggressive look and often painted with teeth on the nose cone, the A-10 Thunderbolt II is the U.S. Air Force’s primary low-altitude close air support aircraft. The A-10 is perhaps best known for its fearsome GAU-8 Avenger 30mm Gatling gun mounted on the nose. The GAU-8 is designed to fire armour-piercing depleted uranium and high explosive incendiary rounds. The A-10 Thunderbolt II has excellent manoeuvrability at low airspeeds and altitude and is a highly accurate and survivable weapons-delivery platform. The aircraft can loiter near battle areas for extended periods of time and operate in low ceiling and visibility conditions. The wide combat radius and short takeoff and landing capability permit operations in and out of locations near front lines. Using night-vision goggles, A-10 pilots can conduct their missions during darkness.
