1/144 scale. A-10 Thunderbolt II. Heller. Specially designed around a 30mm GAU-8 rotating cannon for close air support (CAS), the A-10 is one of the most suitable aircraft for tough battlefield missions, where it displays its low-altituted agility and maneuverability. Highly dangerous low-level flight resulted in the introduction of several exceptional design features in the A-10, such as the placement of the engines high and to the rear for protection from heat-detecting MANPADS. The control systems were tripled, the passenger compartment fully titatium shielded, and tail surfaces are interchangeable. The Thunderbolt can carry an impressive array of weapons, with a maximum load of 7,260kg on its 11 pylons. Armament includes Rockeye bombs and Maverick anti-tank missiles. Length: 16.26m, Wingspan: 17.53m. General Electric TF 34-GE-100 engine. Maximum speed: 705km/h. Maximum takeoff weight: 22,680kg.
