As a bit of an innovator, the A-10 Thunderbolt Ii was the first Air Force aircraft that specifically worked to be a solid tool for ground support for troops. As far as firepower goes, very few aircraft can get near the Thunderbolt thanks to its vicious collection of firepower as well as its ability to survive even the most challenging of situations.

The fact it runs with a twin-engine gives it that extra nice boost to its speed, too, which makes it excellent for getting in and out of tight situations as well as delivering rapid air support when needed. It’s been equally effective in the past against ground targets and armored vehicles, as well as fortified positions and the like. As such, it’s a favored tool for laying waste to large outposts and other sections thanks to the incredible power that it packs in there.

With this download, you’ll be able to see that power through a realistic recreation of the real thing. This brings the style and its strength to the fore, making it incredibly easy to see the range of power that something like this can bring to a simulation environment – it’ll sure be different to anything that you’ve flown recently!

This aircraft provided in here is based on an 81st Fighter Squadron from the USAFE 52d Fighter Wing. This means that you are flying a true version of this aircraft, and this means that all of the correct additions in terms of features and visuals have been included. The model comes equipped with a range of excellent features that make it so fun to fly, including 3D gear bays. This looks excellent and adds a fantastically convincing factor to the flight itself. If you are looking for ways to make your flight sim experience a bit more authentic, this is a good bet.

Furthermore, it adds fully moving parts such as nose wheels, control surfaces, airbrakes and even the head of the pilot to ensure that the entire process can look realistic and be a lot more fun to engage with. This project includes such a wide range of smaller features, too, that you can easily feel at home in this incredibly detailed cockpit sector. It manages to capture all of the finest parts of the cockpit whilst making sure it provides you with easy access to just about all of the tools you’ll need to operate the aircraft safely.

The aircraft has been updated and improved by a team of experts using the FS Design Studio Pro system. The likes of Kirk Olsson, the original creator, have developed some awesome tools and this remake of the A-10A Thunderbolt II is a hugely impressive remake. If you want to see what the true power of one of the most effective aircraft in recent years has been capable of achieving then you should definitely pick this model up. It makes it much easier to hop in and just take off, enjoying the true power of military hardware.
