twin-engine, straight-wing jet aircraft was developed in the early 1970's and is the only United States Air Force aircraft designed solely for close air support of ground forces. The A-10 was built to attack tanks, armored vehicles, and other ground targets with limited air defenses.
The aircraft was designed around the GAU-8 Avenger, a 30mm rotary cannon that is the airplane's primary armament and the heaviest such automatic cannon mounted on an aircraft. The gun fires approximately 30-70 rounds per second.
