A-10 TermSalv

Two A-10 Thunderbolt II attackers as seen in Terminator Salvation.

The A-10 Thunderbolt II is an American single-seat, twin-engine, straight-wing jet aircraft developed by Fairchild-Republic for the United States Air Force to provide close air support (CAS) of ground forces by attacking tanks, armored vehicles, and other ground targets with a limited air interdiction capability. It is the first U.S. Air Force aircraft designed exclusively for close air support.

The A-10 is more commonly known by its nickname "Warthog" or simply "Hog". As a secondary mission, it provides airborne forward air control, guiding other aircraft against ground targets. A-10s used primarily in this role are designated OA-10.

The A-10's official name comes from the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt of World War II, a fighter that was particularly effective at close air support.

Terminator Salvation franchise

A-10's are often flown by the Resistance for close air-support for ground forces. Their relatively slower speeds, ease of field maintenance and the ability to take off from makeshift runways makes them ideal ground-attack aircraft. They have also been shown to be more than a match for most HK-Aerials. Armed with a 30mm GAU-8/A Avenger cannon as well as multiple Sidewinder, Hellfire, and Maverick missiles, the A-10 is a formidable weapon system in the Resistance arsenal.
