A-10 Thunderbolt (Warthog): Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

There are some things that just get your juices flowing and for me the A-10 Warthog is one of them. It’s built like a tank, has two massive General Electric TF34-GE-100 turbofan engines for propulsion and a 30 mm GAU-8/A Avenger Gatling-type cannon on it’s nose. This is a plane that gets up close and personal with anything on the ground, especially tanks and is in fact known as the ‘flying gun’ or the Tankbuster and feared by tank commanders the world over. It’s big and bad ass and in my opinion is the most evil looking thing in the sky. Oh and I forgot to mention that the A-10’s pilot can select a firing rate from the 30 mm cannon of 2,100 or 4,200 rounds a minute. Hell, if that doesn’t scare the crap out of you then you’re simply not human.
