The A-10 Thunderbolt II is an American single-seat, twin-engine, straight-wing jet aircraft designed for the United States Air Force (USAF) in the early 1970s. The A-10 is more commonly known by its nickname "Warthog" or simply "Hog". Its main function is to provide close air support (CAS) for ground forces by attacking tanks and other armored vehicles, and other ground targets with a limited air defense capability. It was the first USAF aircraft designed solely for CAS. As a secondary function, it provides airborne forward air control, guiding other aircraft against ground targets. The A-10 is not expected to be replaced until 2028 or later.
