Product code A10A LIGHT G

Category Various Aviation items

Subcategory Airplane Skin Tags

Availability Product out of stock and no longer available.

Airplane Skin Tags are made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. Because Airplane Skin Tags are made from real fuselage, each Airplane Skin Tags bears the color, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical Airplane Skin Tags. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of Airplane Skin Tags. As a result, you will not have an option to select the color of your Airplane Skin Tags. The images on the website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular Airplane Skin Tags.

Product description

The A-10 Thunderbolt II was used in combat for the first time during the Gulf War. It was designed to provide close air support (CAS) of friendly ground troops, and also served as forward air controllers, to direct other aircraft during close air support strikes to ensure that friendly troops are not harmed. The rugged A-10 is a single seat, twin turbofan, subsonic attack aircraft which was developed specifically for CAS. It was designed by the famed aeronautical engineer and aircraft designer Alexander Kartveli, who also developed its namesake, the P-47 Thunderbolt. The A-10 was armed with a 30 mm GAU-8 Avenger seven barrel Gatling style auto cannon that delivered its armor-piercing rounds at a high rate of fire. The A-10 was notably used in the Gulf War, Grenada, and Afghanistan. As of December 2022, there are 281 currently in service.
