Test Area

U.S. Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt IIs await a mission at an airbase in Southwest Asia in support of operations in Iraq. The A-10 is a single-seat, twin-engine aircraft designed to provide close air support of ground forces by attacking armored vehicles and other ground targets. As a secondary mission, it provides airborne forward air control guiding other aircraft against ground targets. It is the first U.S. Air Force aircraft designed exclusively for close air support.
