October 1975 saw delivery of the first USAF A-10a and deployment in March 1976. Built 
specifically for close ground support the pilot is protected by titanium armor while being 
covered by a bubble canopy giving a commanding view. The Warthog has everything 
needed to survive, dual engines; self-sealing fuel cells; redundant flight control systems 
protected by titanium armor; a 30 mm seven-barrel Gatling gun; a wide array of bombs 
and missiles. This plane packs a heavy punch and can stay on scene a long time to 
deliver.
In the Gulf War, A-10s had a mission capable rate of 95.7 percent, flew 8,100 sorties and 
launched 90 percent of the AGM-65 Maverick missiles and were vital assets during 
Operation Desert Storm and Operation Noble Anvil.


A-10A 79-0143 was built as A10-0407 and eventually became a United States Air Force 
Reserve (AFRES) aircraft with the 47th TFS “Terrible Termites” / 917th TFG located at 
Barksdale AFB, Louisiana. In October 1980 the 47th TFS traded in their old A-37 
Dragonfly’s for the A-10. Three times the 47th TFS deployed to Aviano AB, Italy in 
support of United Nations operations and flew 501 sorties. A-10 79-0143 was transferred 
to the 66th Weapons Squadron at Nellis AFB and in 2003 was written off due to 
mechanical failure.
