In 1967 the USAF requested a new close support aircraft. On February 15, 1975 Fairchild delivered the first A-10s. The A-10 is a cantilever low wing monoplane of all metal construction. The enclosed cockpit is well forward of the wings and the bullet proof windshield protects the pilot along with a titanium bath tub structure. The A-10 was designed for primitive areas so that it can offer short term response against enemy vehicles.

Designed to counter criticism that the US Air Force wasn't serious enough about close air support, the A-10 Thunderbolt II was first flown on May 10, 1972. The Thunderbolt II is a single-seat attack aircraft used to protect ground forces from tanks, armored vehicles and other ground targets. Nicknamed "Warthog," the A-10 is highly maneuverable at low speeds and low altitude and is capable of short take-offs and landings. It is designed for easy maintenance—many of its parts are interchangeable between the right and left side and it can operate from bases with limited facilities. The A-10 is expected to remain in service until 2028 or beyond
