Ormally reserved for jet fighters the slow moving heavily armed Warthogs were credited with over half the bomb damage inflicted on Irai forces and installations Employing improvisational tactics A 10s also flew reconnaissance and assisted in rescues of coalition pilots; they even scored air to air kills downing a couple of enemy choppers Indeed the plane's ungainly Gatling un platform performed so well that pilots demanded their craft be redesignated ``RFOA 10'' for ``reconnaissancefighterobservationattack''.

Great read and I love this plane Looks aren t everything as you know that is what everyone talks about when speaking of the A 10 It s what the plane can do that s so important I don t know why there is talks of etting rid of it Having 1,000 Awesome Writing Prompts gone to the Boneyard in AZ and seeing so many of them sitting there just waiting too back into service should there be a need it Moonrise (Snowfall, gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling Certainly aood book and for someone interested In The Modern Post the modern post War USAF or the A "10 a must readWilliam The author has bought together in this book the "a must readWilliam The author has bought together in this book the experience of numerous A 10 pilots during the first Gulf war and has produced an A class read From start to finish the narrative meshes together the pilot s stories so they read as one Also he ives a reat overview and history of the ugly sister of planes the Warthog The book covers the coming of the A 10 into highly respected multi functional and weapons platform A true story of the frog turning into a prince but remaining a frog at the same timeI take my hat off to the brave pilots and round crews of these machines do yourself a favour and read this book I "ve always been fascinated by the A 10 Warthog You will not find a thoroughly researched "always been fascinated by the A 10 Warthog You will not find a thoroughly researched of writing of any length on this aircraft The author interviewed dozens of pilots who flew in the first Ira War over an extended period As well as interesting technical details the first hand accounts of pilots who flew round the clock missions during Desert Shield and Desert Storm are fascinating From my point of view it s interesting to compare their stories to those of their forebears in WWII and Vietnam where casualty rates were much higher The A 10 is basically a flying tank and was designed perfectly to fill not just a round attack role but the many other roles that were entrusted to it and its pilots during its first ever active combat Extraordinary aircraft extraordinary airmenIt nearly lost a point for being scanned a little scrappily into Kindle format and for having some spelling mistakes The A 10 may have been the reason that the 1990 91 Gulf War was such an easy victory over Ira The A 10 is no doubt the ugliest plane. A valentine for one of the ugliest albeit most lethally effective warplanes ever built as well as for the men who flew them during the Desert Storm campaign Drawing on interviews with over one hundred A 10 pilots who served in the Persian Gulf during the 1990 91 hostilities Smallwood himself an aviator and Korean War vet offers riveting perspectives on aerial combat Setting the stage with an informative briefing on how in the 70's the Air Force developed the A 10 aka ``Warthog'' as a means of supporting roun. ,
