A-10 Warthog T-Shirt

There are not many planes more “BADASS” than the Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II, also known as the “Warthog”. The A-10’s story began in Vietnam, warfare over the jungles of Vietnam posed a problem for the existing set of F-105 Thunderchiefs and F-4 Phantoms, which were not as effective at close air support missions. Much simpler and older propeller driven aircraft like the A-1 Skyraider and Army helicopters were more preferable and could maneuver at low altitudes and had the range to help infantry operations with air support. By 1972, the Pentagon had developed a single-seat, twin turbofan engine, straight-wing jet aircraft designed solely for close air support (CAS) of friendly ground troops, attacking armored vehicles and tanks, and providing quick-action support, enter the A-10 Thunderbolt II. In 1976 the A-10 would officially be put into service, and since then it has proven itself to be invaluable to the United States and its allies, participating in the Gulf War, operations Desert Storm, Southern Watch, Provide Comfort, Desert Fox, Noble Anvil, Deny Flight, Deliberate Guard, Allied Force, Enduring Freedom, and Iraqi Freedom. Order the A-10 Warthog shirt from Cockpit USA.
