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
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.


In 1999 NATO was involved in an effort to drive the invading Serbian forces out of
Kosovo. Using bases in Italy the unit flew over 1,400 missions in support of bombing
sorties to destroy the Serbian military infrastructure. The 81st Fighter Squadron led two
successful search and rescue task force missions that saw the safe recovery of a pilot
from a downed F-117 and another from an F-16. During the ten week conflict NATO
aircraft carried out over 38,000 combat missions.
