A-10 Thunderbolt II

The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is a single-seat, twin turbofan engine, straight wing jet aircraft developed by Fairchild-Republic for the United States Air Force. This jet was a blast to make. I love how well it came out too. It was a bit difficult to make super manueverable, but at least the real life counterpart doesn't either. It is great for destroying ground targets (as you might have guessed). It is armed with 2 guardians, 4 interceptors, and one gau-8 machine gun. 1=nav lights 2=landing light 3= Airbrakes VTOL=Flaps. The plane does need to be trimmed right off the bat, so I suggest that you lower the trim slider between the middle arrow and the second arrow. Hope you enjoy!

    Oh I see what you mean. If you want a hinge to angle in the direction that you want, simply use the 90° angle arrow and angle the rotator sideways, then you have free range over it's angle. If that makes any sense.@KnightOfRen

    They are angled down, and from my experience (Not much!), you cannot make hinges always angle. @Hedero

    I see people say Fairchild and Grumman. Wikipedia says it's Fairchild, so I guess it is. @Hedero

    Oh ok. A professional advised that I use fuel tanks instead of infinite fuel. I wanted to use a smaller amount of fuel to create a realistic experience. @cruiseman101

    Well actually, the a-10 warthog is exactly the same as the thunderbolt II. "Warthog" is simply the nickname of the thunderbolt.@cruiseman101

    Well we'll be on a cruise ship for like a week. And it needs you to pay 5 bucks a day to use it. So because I'm only 14 and I'm not active on my social media account, I won't be using wifi. But then we'll be heading out west right after that but I can use the wifi in the hotels for free.@Cobrahuey
