The A-10 Warthog is a straight-wing attack jet used by the United States of America.

LoreEdit

Originally introduced in 1977, the A-10 Thunderbolt II, more commonly known as the Warthog, is among the oldest aircraft in service of the United States Air Force. After the turn of the millennium, the plane was originally meant to be phased out in favor of the more versatile F-35A. However, perpetual design disputes, technical issues and overflowing costs resulted in a severe scaling down of the Joint Strike Fighter project in the late 2010s. While the F-35 only achieved a margin of success as an export plane for America's more prominent allies such as Canada, Turkey, Israel and Japan, the A-10 fleet was brought back from the boneyard and refurbished for service during the Global War on Terror. Now, two decades later, the 'Hog' will once again distinguish itself in the battle against Russian armor divisions in Europe.

Unit Assessment Edit

Armaments Edit

An aircraft built around its 30 mm Gatling gun, the GAU-8 Avenger, meant to penetrate any tank armor and six "Maverick" AGMs for close air support. The A10 is designed to eliminate any unfortified positions, heavily damage fortified ones, or destroy an unprotected armored columns. As with most Level 3 GP it has three levels, with each level adding another plane therefore doubling or tripling the amount of damage in the small radius of it's target area.

Tactics Edit

Used more as an anti-fortress GP than an anti-army, as it's meant to eliminate non tech buildings or damage the aforementioned. An A10 Strafing Run (Level 1) will eliminate any defensive structure and heavily damage unit producing structures. The A10 Rocket Run (Level 2) will destroy any non tech building, Command Centers, or Super-weapons. Lastly the A10 Bombing Run (Level 3) will destroy any non Tier 2 tech buildings and heavily damage Command Centers, Tier 2 Tech Buildings and Super-weapons.

Counter Edit

Dubbed as the super-weapon sniper as they could heavily damage any super weapon, which commonly followed by a another strike (Nighthawks, Carpet Bomb GP, or a SW strike). Any commander who wished to protect his base from such strikes should deploy a large amount of both light and heavy anti air, as these air aircraft are considered to be one of the hardest to destroy GP aircraft.
