DESCRIPTION :
======================

 

The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is a single seat, twin turbofan engine, straight wing jet aircraft developed by Fairchild-Republic for the United States Air Force (USAF). Commonly referred to by its nicknames "Warthog" or "Hog", its official name comes from the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, a World War II fighter that was effective at attacking ground targets. The A-10 was designed for close-in support of ground troops, close air support (CAS), providing quick-action support for troops against helicopters, vehicles, and ground troops. It entered service in 1976 and is the only production-built aircraft that has served in the USAF that was designed solely for CAS. Its secondary mission is to provide forward air controller – airborne (FAC-A) support, by directing other aircraft in attacks on ground targets. Aircraft used primarily in this role are designated OA-10.

 

The A-10A single-seat variant was the only version produced, though one pre-production airframe was modified into the YA-10B twin-seat prototype to test an all-weather night capable version. In 2005, a program was started to upgrade remaining A-10A aircraft to the A-10C configuration with modern avionics for use of precision weaponry. The U.S. Air Force had stated the F-35 would replace the A-10 as it entered service, but this remains highly contentious within the Air Force and in political circles. With a variety of upgrades and wing replacements, the A-10's service life may be extended to 2040.

Thanks, and already F-16 can lase the target with built-in laser designator(since latest update)

A-10A can't lase the target but can see the laser target and throw the LGB because A have Pave Penny. but A-10C, will can be self-lase with targeting pod(LITENING and Sniper XR)

 

thanks the mirroring always :-)

great addon mate.

 

two things:

 

1. the pod-camera, cant be used with mouse. mouse is stearing the plane.

2. the canopy is very milky, especially on the side and in a 90 degree angle.

if you use track ir5 its nealy impossible fly sideways and look at the ground.

 

testen further, really like it.

 

thx for your work !!

Good, I like it's flight model. It doesn't stall easily.

But a question. Why every bomb is kinda smart bomb?!

All you have to do is pressing "R" toward enemy vehicles and release a bomb. Not matter what kind of bomb it is. 10 times R+Fire = 10 enemy vehicle destroyed.

Even dumb bombs lock and follow targets even if they move!!!

Hey Firewill. Awesome release!

 

It flies beautifully, sounds good and looks good. Cudoz man, good job.

 

I found a few small things, not sure if on purpose or bugs, but I thought I'd post them anyway:

1+2+3.  Reported in the AWS thread

4. Station 7 and 5 can only load 5 Mk82 Snakeyes even if the selection says 6. One bomb is missing per pylon (the inner one in the back). Regular GPB's load 6 as it says.

 

Question on the upcoming C-version. Will the C-version be capable of carrying GBU-39/B or GBU-53/B? Some sources says it's in development and some says development was canceled in the fight to keep the A-10 alive for a few more years. I don't know the IRL details, but what's your plan? :)

Hi! Tested this a bit today and I love how it flies, shoots, looks and sounds. Like one guy mentioned further up here when you bank left or right the glass over the cockpit whites out, so in turns, or flying upside down you cant see anything but straight forward. I'm guessing its the sun reflecting causing it, but its a big negative for me atleast. The glass itself looks a bit rough, even damaged. More visibility is better :)

 

Thanks for making the best A-10 so far!

Thanks for the Early release. I will supply you with some feedback on the thread if you want for any issues I experience. Im sure will be a while since you stated you were releasing early due to your schedule getting busy here in the future.

 

Thanks again for your constant support and always great work.
