The A-10 Thunderbolt by Lueb-Art The A-10 Thunderbolt by Lueb-Art
Digitally painted with Wacom tablet & stylus using Corel Painter 12.

The A-10 Thunderbolt is also known as the Warthog, the 'flying gun' and the Tankbuster. The aircraft was used extensively during Operation Desert Storm, in support of Nato operations in response to the Kosovo crisis, in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

The A-10 is a high-survivability and versatile aircraft, popular with pilots for the 'get home' effectiveness.

The mission of the aircraft is ground attack against tanks, armoured vehicles and installations, and close air support of ground forces.

The aircraft is suitable for operation from forward air bases, with short take-off and landing capability. The aircraft has a long range (800 miles), high endurance and can loiter in the battle area.

The manoeuvrability at low speed and low altitude (below 1,000ft) allows accurate and effective targeting and weapon delivery over all types of terrain.

If I didn't know the caliber and destructive force of the gun, I would laugh at the sound it makes.. Excelent work!

The plane is truly impressive, and IMO should have stayed in production. But like the B-52 which will probably fly a hundred years because of excellent maintenance and modifications, the existing A-10s will also be around as long as needed. Thank you.
