The A10 Thunderbolt II, more colloquially known as the "A-10 Warthog" is a close-ground support aircraft featured in Medal of Honor (2010) and Medal of Honor: Warfighter. Currently employed by the United States Air Force, several dozen A-10's are currently deployed in Afghanistan, providing close-air support for ground forces stationed there. The A-10 is notable for being completely designed around the GAU-8 Avenger 30mm rotary cannon, used with great effect in air support missions.
Medal of Honor (2010)Edit
In the campaign of Medal of Honor (2010), the A-10 Warthog is utilized by the United States Air Force, providing danger-close close air support fire on insurgent positions in and around Bagram Airfield.
The A-10 is available in the form of a support action in the game's multiplayer. When a target is marked, two A10s strafe the designated area (too fast to be damaged by any weapon) with their main 30mm cannons. It is capable of neutralizing any light hostile in a decently sized blast radius of the target.
Medal of Honor: WarfighterEdit
The A-10 Thunderbolt is seen during the Multiplayer reveal trailer during E3, it is shown shooting down a large tower, similar to the Strafe Run.
