【About the Aircraft】

The A-10 Thunderbolt II is a close air support attack aircraft that has been in operation since 1977. Its main role is to attack enemy ground forces and ground weapons ahead to the advance of ally ground forces. The A-10 can be equipped with weapons such as missiles weighing up to 7 tons. The A-10C, which has undergone renovations such as a glass cockpit, made its first flight in 2005. The A-10 is still operated by the United States Air Force now, and some are also operated by the state air force. The Indiana Air National Guard is also one of the units that operate the A-10. In 2021, to commemorate 100 years of aviation in the Indiana Air National Guard, the A-10 of the 163rd Fighter Squadron was painted in a special paint scheme named "Blacksnake", which is a nickname of the squadron, attracted a lot of attention.
