The A-10 fighter is literally one of the modern legends of the American Air Design School. As in the case of the Russian type Su-25, the A-10 is an example of a purposeful design aimed at meeting simple requirements - high maneuverability at low speeds allowing low-altitude flights, extreme firepower to eliminate a wide range of targets, resistance to enemy fire and production and ease of maintenance. The entire aircraft was literally built around a 30mm GAU-8 / A rotary cannon, the most powerful main weapon ever used on an aircraft. The enormous carrying capacity of the armament, combined with long endurance, gave rise to a truly unique type, which for the rest of its life excels not only in resistance to enemy fire, but also to various political, lobbying and other commanding pressures.
Although in Czech the booklet includes a lot of beautiful A10 pictures including some of the A10 with A4 skyhawk nose!! Alone for that it is recomended!
