For sheer firepower, there isn’t much that compares to the A-10.  Designated the “Thunderbolt II,” but more affectionately known as the “Warthog,” the A-10 is among the most lethal and most resilient aircraft to enter the force.

The A-10 is the first aircraft designed specifically for close air support and can survive direct hits from armor-piercing and high explosive projectiles up to 23mm.  The aircraft was built around its GAU-8/A Avenger seven-barreled cannon, the most powerful gun ever fitted to a tactical aircraft.  The ultimate measure of a fighting force’s effectiveness is the ability to rapidly project and sustain an effective combat force close to a potential battle area.  Threats to U.S. interests have changed in the past year and many combat scenarios will be played out toe-to-toe with the enemy at close quarters.  Despite improved capabilities of potential adversaries, the A-10 accomplishes its mission by its capacity to deliver punishing firepower, yet withstand astonishing damage at extremely close quarters.

Thunderstruck depicts a pair of “Hawgs” ravaging a column of tanks in the close confines of a mountain road.  With its GAU-8/A Avenger blazing, the lead aircraft makes short work of the enemy’s assets, as the ground passes by in a blur of speed.

Thunderstruck is carefully reproduced on 100 lb. Archival Stock, each 24" x 30" print is individually signed and inspected by the artist for color consistency and accuracy.  Be sure to select a print type when ordering!
