When there’s a discussion about the toughest fighter plane around, the A-10 Warthog is always in the running.
The A-10 Warthog or the Hog (for those who fly it) is built with 1,200 pounds (540 kg) of titanium armor to protect the cockpit and aircraft systems. Its formal name is the Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II. It’s a single-seat twin turbofan engine, straight wing jet aircraft. Its first flight was back in May 1972, and it’s still being used after 47 years.
The A-10 got its nickname because, back then, the maintenance crew who worked on it found it really ugly, especially when it’s compared to other sleeker models. They started it as a joke but through the years the nickname is now out of affection and respect.
One of the best fighter planes in the world, there are many Warthog stories that bring it proof. There’s a story of an A-10 landing safely despite having a hole in its engine, an air force pilot landing her damaged A-10 using cranks and cables, and that time when an A-10 made a dramatic belly landing without any landing gear.
But hey, don’t just take it from those articles. Here’s about more than an hour’s worth of videos that show just how tough the A-10 Warthog is: watch this, this, and especially, this.
