A-10, more commonly referred to as the “Warthogâ€

Since Desert Storm if the mission involved close air support — especially killing tanks — the A-10 ‘Warthog’ was the jet the infantry loved to see overhead.

It’s lethal, it’s agile, and it’s perfect at providing support for troops on the ground.

So it’s easy to see why they absolutely love it.

The A-10 “Thunderbolt IIâ€
