The A-10 Thunderbolt II, affectionately nicknamed “The Warthog,” was developed for the United States Air Force by the OEM Team from Fairchild Republic Company, now a part of Northrop Grumman Corporation Aerospace Systems Eastern Region located in Bethpage NY and St. Augustine FL. Following in the footsteps of the legendary P47 Thunderbolt, the OEM Team was awarded a study contract in the 1960s to define requirements for a new Close Air Support aircraft, rugged and survivable, to protect combat troops on the ground. This initial study was followed up by a prototype development contract for the A-X, and a final flyoff competition resulting in the selection of the A-10 Thunderbolt II.

The A-10A/C is a fixed-wing, single-pilot aircraft with two high bypass turbofan engines that is optimized for the Close Air Support (CAS) combat mission. Originally designed to counter a mass-Soviet armor thrust across Europe, the A-10 was designed from the ground up to be the most survivable and potent CAS aircraft over a very deadly battlefield.

The Northrop YA-9 was a prototype attack aircraft developed for the United States Air Force A-X program. The YA-9 was passed over in preference for the Fairchild Republic YA-10 that entered production as the A-10 Thunderbolt II. 
Background: Criticism that the U.S. Air Force did not take close air support seriously prompted a few service members to seek a specialized attack aircraft. In the Vietnam War, large numbers of ground-attack aircraft were shot down by small arms, surface-to-air missiles, and low-level anti-aircraft gunfire, prompting the development of an aircraft better able to survive such weapons. Fast jets such as the North American F-100 Super Sabre, Republic F-105 Thunderchief, and McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II proved for the most part to be ineffective for close air support. The Douglas A-1 Skyraider was the USAF's primary close air support aircraft.

De. text: Die Henschel Hs 129 war ein einsitziges, zweimotoriges Erdkampfflugzeug der Henschel Flugzeug-Werke AG, das speziell für diese Aufgabe entworfen wurde. Sie wurde während des Zweiten Weltkrieges zwischen 1942 und 1945 vor allem zur Panzerbekämpfung eingesetzt, was ihr den Spitznamen „Büchsenöffner“ einbrachte. Das Haupteinsatzgebiet war an der Ostfront. Von diesem Typ wurden 879 Einheiten hergestellt, die neben der deutschen Luftwaffe auch von der rumänischen Luftwaffe (62 Stück) eingesetzt wurden. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henschel_Hs_129
En. text: The Henschel Hs 129 was a World War II ground-attack aircraft fielded by the German Luftwaffe. In combat service the Hs 129 lacked a sufficient chance to prove itself; the aircraft was produced in relatively small numbers and deployed during a time when the Luftwaffe was unable to protect them from attack. Rudolf-Heinz Ruffer scored a large number of his 80 Soviet tank kills in the Hs 129.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henschel_Hs_129
Hu. text: A Hs 129 a német Henschel repülőgépgyár által kifejlesztett kétmotoros alacsonytámadó / csata repülőgép, melyet a Luftwaffe megrendelésére terveztek meg. A típust a második világháborúban alkalmazták, főleg az európai keleti fronton, de alkalmazták 1942-ben Észak-Afrikában is. Német beceneve a "Panzerknacker", azaz a „páncélostörő” lett, alapvető feladatköre miatt. Harctéri alkalmazása nem volt egyértelműen kielégítő, alulmotorizáltságát nem ellensúlyozta fegyverzete, manőverező légiharcokban nem volt kielégítő a teljesítménye, a háború második felében alkalmazott szovjet vadászrepülőgépekkel szemben kevés eséllyel vehette fel a harcot. Kis számban lett gyártva, ezért csapattámogató bevetéseik nem voltak elégségesek a Wehrmacht szárazföldi alakulatai számára, a szovjet előrenyomulást érdemben nem befolyásolhatta. A Hs 129B–3 változatba beépített BK 7,5, 75 mm-es fedélzeti ágyú az amerikai AC–130 és az A–10 Thunderbolt IIhadrendbe állásáig a legnagyobb teljesítményű csöves repülőgépfedélzeti-fegyver volt, amit hadrendi repülőgép alkalmazott. A Hs 129 tervével a Henschel cég 1937 tavaszán egy viszonylag kicsi, de erősen páncélozott és a földi csapatok támogatására is alkalmas 'Schlachtflugzeugra' azaz csatarepülőgépekre kiírt pályázatra jelentkezett. A tiszta fémépítésű, szabadonhordó szárnnyal készített típus 1939 tavaszán repült először, akkor még két 465 LE-s (2×347 kW) Argus As 410 típusú, fordított-V hengerelrendezésű motorral. Csak 1942 áprilisában állították szolgálatba, Hs 129B–1 típusjellel és francia hadizsákmányból származó erősebb csillagmotorral szerelték fel. Az igen sérülékeny motor teljesítménye nem volt elegendő, de mivel a keleti fronton nagy szükség volt repülőgépekre, így 843 darab Hs 129B készült ezzel a motorral. Továbbfejlesztett változata a Hs 129B–2 1943-ban repült először, ezt követően hamarosan megszüntették rajta a kiegészítő fegyverbölcsőket, ehelyett a törzs alá beépített harckocsi-elhárító gépágyúk kerültek a gépre. A Hs 129 csatarepülőgépként 37 mm-es gépágyúval felszerelve hatékony fegyvernek bizonyult. Eredményességét jól mutatja, hogy a kurszki csatában 68 darab Hs 129 repülőgép 50 páncélost semmisített meg néhány óra leforgása alatt. https://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hs_129

The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is an American twin-engine, straight wing jet aircraft developed byFairchild-Republic in the early 1970s. It entered service in 1976, and is the only United States Air Forceproduction-built aircraft designed solely for close air support, including attacking tanks, armored vehicles, and other ground targets.
The A-10 was designed around the 30 mm GAU-8 Avenger rotary cannon that is its primary armament. The A-10's airframe was designed for durability, with measures such as 1,200 pounds (540 kg) of titanium armor to protect the cockpit and aircraft systems, enabling it to absorb a significant amount of damage and continue flying. Its short takeoff and landing capability permits operation from airstrips close to the front lines, while its simple design enables maintenance at forward bases with limited facilities. The A-10A single-seat variant was the only version built, though one A-10A was converted to an A-10B twin-seat version. In 2005, a program was begun to upgrade remaining A-10A aircraft to the A-10C configuration.
The A-10's official name comes from the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt of World War II, a fighter that was particularly effective at close air support. The A-10 is more commonly known by its nicknames "Warthog" or"Hog". Its secondary mission is to provide forward air controller - airborne (FAC-A) support, by directing other aircraft in attacks on ground targets. Aircraft used primarily in this role are designated OA-10. With a variety of upgrades and wing replacements, the A-10's service life may be extended to 2028.

Henschel Hs 129B
Hs-129 Design and development:

By the middle of the 1930s the idea of using aircraft against ground targets had been "well understood" to be of little use other than hurting enemy morale. Experiences during World War I had demonstrated that attacking the combatants was generally much more dangerous to the aircraft than the troops on the ground, a problem that was only becoming more acute with the introduction of newer weapons. For much of the 1920s and 1930s the use of aircraft was seen primarily in the strategic and interdiction roles, where their targets were less likely to be able to fight back with any level of coordination. For high-value point targets, the dive bomber was the preferred solution.

The German Condor Legion experience during the Spanish Civil War turned this idea on its head. Although armed with generally unsuitable aircraft such as the Henschel Hs 123 and cannon-armed versions of the Heinkel He 112, their powerful armament and fearless pilots proved that the aircraft was a very effective weapon even without bombs. This led to some support within the Luftwaffe for the creation of an aircraft dedicated to this role, and eventually a contract was tendered for a new "attack aircraft".

Since the main source of damage would be from rifle and machine gun fire from the ground, the plane had to be heavily armored around the cockpit and engines. They also required the same protection in the windscreen, which required 75 mm thick armored glass. Since the aircraft was expected to be attacking its targets directly in low level strafing runs, the cockpit had to be located as close as possible to the nose in order to see the ground. One last requirement, a non-technical one, ended up dooming the designs; the RLM demanded that the aircraft be powered by "unimportant" engines of low power that were not being used in other designs, so the plane's production would not interfere with that of other types deemed more essential to the war effort.

Four companies were asked to respond, and only two of the resulting three entries were considered worthy of consideration; Focke-Wulf's conversion of their earlier Fw 189 reconnaissance plane, and Henschel's all-new Hs 129.

Prototypes:

The Hs 129 was designed around a single large "bathtub" of steel sheeting that made up the entire nose area of the plane, completely enclosing the pilot up to head level. Even the canopy was steel, with only tiny windows on the side to see out of and two angled blocks of glass for the windscreen. In order to improve the armor's ability to stop bullets, the fuselage sides were angled in forming a triangular shape, resulting in almost no room to move at shoulder level. There was so little room in the cockpit that the instrument panel ended up under the nose below the windscreen where it was almost invisible, some of the engine instruments were moved outside onto the engine nacelles, and the gunsight was mounted outside on the nose.

In the end the plane came in 12% overweight and the engines 8% underpowered, and it understandably flew poorly. The controls proved to be almost inoperable as speed increased, and in testing one plane flew into the ground from a short dive because the stick forces were too high for the pilot to pull out. The Fw design proved to be no better. Both planes were underpowered with their Argus As 410 engines, and very difficult to fly.

The RLM nevertheless felt they should continue with the basic concept. In the end the only real deciding factor between the two was that the Henschel was smaller and cheaper. The Focke-Wulf was put on low priority as a backup, and testing continued with the Hs 129 A-0. A series of improvements resulted in the Hs 129 A-1 series, armed with two 20 mm MG 151/20s and two 7.92 mm MG 17s, along with the ability to carry four 50 kg bombs under the fuselage midline.

Hs 129 B-1

Even before the A-1s were delivered the plane was redesigned with the Gnome-Rhône 14M radial engine, which were captured in some number when France fell. This engine supplied 700 hp (522 kW) for takeoff compared to the Argus at 465 hp (347 kW). The Gnome-Rhone radials were also made in versions with opposite rotation for the propeller, and were installed on the Hs 129 with the port engine rotating clockwise, and the starboard rotating counterclockwise, as seen from nose-on, exactly as the Allison inline V-12 engines in the USA's P-38 Lightning twin-engined fighter were set up, thus eliminating engine torque problems. The A-1 planes were converted into Hs 129 B-0's for testing (although some claim that some As were sold to Romania) and the pilots were reportedly much happier. Their main complaint was the view from the canopy, so a single larger windscreen and a new canopy with much better vision were added, resulting in the production model Hs 129 B-1.

B-1s started rolling off the lines in December 1941, but they were delivered at a trickle. In preparation for the new plane, I./Sch.G 1 had been formed up in January with Bf 109 E/B's (fighter-bomber version of Bf 109 E) and Hs 123's, and they were delivered B-0s and every B-1 that was completed. Still, it wasn't until April that 12 B-1s were delivered and its 4th staffel (squadron) was ready for action. They moved to the eastern front in the middle of May, and in June they received a new weapon, the 30 mm MK 101 cannon with armor-piercing ammunition in a midline pod.

Hs 129 B-2

By May of 1942 after only 50 of the planes had been delivered, they started to deliver the new Hs 129 B-2 model side-by-side with the B-1. The only difference between the two were changes to the fuel system – a host of other minor changes could be found almost at random on either model. As time went on these changes were accumulated into the B-2 production line until you could finally tell them apart at a glance, the main differences being the removal of the mast for the radio antenna, the addition of a direction-finding radio antenna loop, and shorter exhaust stacks on the engines.

In the field the differences seemed to be more pronounced. The R-kits were renumbered and some were dropped, and in general the B-2 planes received the upgraded cannon pack using a MK 103 instead of the earlier MK 101. These guns both fired the same ammunition, but the 103 did so at almost twice the rate.

Hs 129 B-3

Close up of the Bordkanone BK 7,5 cannon Even by late 1942 complaints started about the MK 103 against newer versions of the Soviet T-34 tanks. One obvious solution would be to use the larger 37 mm gun, adapted from an antitank gun that had recently been abandoned by the army. These guns had already been converted into pod-mounted weapons for the Ju 87 and found to be a fearsome weapon. When mounted on the Hs 129 the empty area behind the cockpit could be used for ammunition storage, which would address the only problem with the Ju 87's mounting, limited ammunition.

But for some reason the Luftwaffe decided to skip over this gun for the Hs 129, and install a gigantic 75 mm gun from the Panzer IV. A huge hydraulic system was used to damp the recoil of the gun, and an auto-loader system with twelve rounds was fitted in the large empty space behind the cockpit. The resulting system was able to knock out any tank in the world, but the weight slowed the already poor performance of the plane to barely flyable in this new Hs 129 B-3 version.

B-3s finally started arriving in June 1944, and only 25 were delivered by the time the lines were shut down in September. A small number were also converted from older B-2 models. In the field they proved deadly weapons, but with only 25 of them they had no effect on the war effort.

Hs 129 C

In order to address the poor performance of the aircraft, plans had been underway for some time to fit the plane with newer versions of the Italian Isotta-Fraschini Delta engine that delivered 850 hp (634 kW). However the engine ran into a number of delays, and was still not ready for production when the plant was overrun by the Allies in 1945.

The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt is one of the largest and heaviest fighter aircraft in history to be powered by a single 4-stroke internal combustion engine. It was built from 1941–1945. It was heavily armed with eight .50-caliber machine guns, four per wing. When fully loaded, the P-47 weighed up to eight tons, and in the fighter-bomber ground-attack roles could carry five-inch rockets or a significant bomb load of 2,500 pounds; it could carry more than half the payload of the B-17 bomber on long-range missions (although the B-17 had a far greater range). The P-47 was designed around the powerful Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp engine—the same engine used by two very successful U.S. Navy fighters, the Grumman F6F Hellcat and Vought F4U Corsair, the latter of which was the first to fly with Double Wasp power in late May 1940—and was to be very effective as a short-to-medium range escort fighter in high-altitude air-to-air combat. When deployed as a fighter-bomber with its usual "double quartet" of heavy-caliber M2 Browning machine guns, it proved especially adept at ground attack in both the World War II European and Pacific Theaters. The P-47 was one of the main United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) fighters of World War II, and served with other Allied air forces, notably those of France, Britain, and Russia. Mexican and Brazilian squadrons fighting alongside the U.S. were equipped with the P-47. The armored cockpit was roomy inside, comfortable for the pilot, and offered good visibility. A modern-day U.S. ground-attack aircraft, the Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II, takes its name from the P-47.
Hu. text: A Republic P-47 Thunderbolt (magyarul Villámcsapás) amerikai vadászrepülőgép volt a második világháború során. Teljesen feltöltve nehezebb volt, mint a német Do 17 bombázó, így a legnehezebb egymotoros vadászgép volt a háború során. A típust repülő pilóták több becenévvel illették. Ilyen volt a Jug (magyarul Vödör, a Juggernaut, azaz a Könyörtelen erő rövidítésével), vagy a Hun (a hunok után), de a „dundi fickó” is közkeletű volt. Robusztus felépítésű sárkánya nagyon sérülésállónak bizonyult, nyolc nehézgéppuskája pedig kompenzálta a könnyebb vadászokkal szembeni lomhaságát. 7600 m fölött a repülési magasság növekedésével teljesítménye egyre inkább felülmúlta a Mustangét. A P–51 Mustang elterjedését követően a háború utolsó két évében már inkább alacsonytámadó feladatkörben került alkalmazásra az európai és a távol-keleti hadszíntereken egyaránt.

Fairchild Firma: (wikipedia)

The company was founded by Sherman Fairchild in 1924 as Fairchild Aviation Corporation, based in Farmingdale, and East Farmingdale, New York. It was established as the parent company for Fairchild's many aviation interests. The company produced the first US aircraft to include a fully enclosed cockpit and hydraulic landing gear, the Fairchild FC-1. At some point they were also known as the Fairchild Aircraft Manufacturing Company. The Fairchild Aircraft Ltd. of Longueuil, Quebec, Canada was an aircraft manufacturer in the period 1920-1950. It served as a subsidiary of the Fairchild company of the United States. The Fairchild Engine company was formed with the purchase of the Caminez Engine Company in 1925. In 1929 Sherman Fairchild purchased a majority stock interest in Kreider-Reisner Aircraft Company of Hagerstown, Maryland. Fairchild moved to Hagerstown in 1931.
Besides designing and building aircraft, Fairchild pioneered the commercial use of aerial photography. Many of its first aircraft like the Fairchild FC-2 were originally designed for that purpose, because the cameras of those days were extremely heavy and required flying steady at a high altitude for that era. In 1935 Fairchild was hired by the US government to do aerial photograph surveys of the United States to track soil erosion and its effects. A Fairchild aircraft, the Virginia, was taken as one of three aircraft by Richard E. Byrd on his 1928–1929 expedition to the South Pole. It was used for test flights and reconnaissance. 
was Fairchild Fasteners, a Sherman Fairchild company, which was sold to Alcoa for 657 Million on December 3, 2002 and is now called Alcoa Fasteners.

Selection of the A-10 Thunderbolt II for this mission was based on the dramatic low altitude maneuverability, lethality, “get home safe” survivability, and mission capable maintainability designed into the jet by the OEM team. This design features a titanium “bathtub” that protects the pilot from injury, and dually redundant flight control systems that allow the pilot to fly the aircraft out of enemy range, despite severe damage such as complete loss of hydraulic capability. These features have been utilized to great effect in both the Desert Storm conflict of the 1990’s and in the more recent Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom, and Global War on Terror engagements. In 1987, the ™A-10 OEM Team and all A-10 assets were acquired by Grumman Corporation from Fairchild Republic Company, and are now part of the Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems Eastern Region, presently partnered with Lockheed Martin Systems Integration as a member of the A-10 Prime Team. The OEM Team has maintained continuous involvement in the modernization of the jet, integrating the Inertial Navigation System in the 1970s, developing and installing the Low Altitude Safety and Targeting Enhancement ground collision avoidance system in the 1980s, and the Night Vision Imaging System in the 1990s, and has demonstrated particular leadership in the planning and analysis required for managing the structural integrity of the airframe through the various changes in flight maneuver spectra, mission, and force structure. The A-10 Aircraft Structural Integrity Program began with the initial A-10 OEM development contract, with the definition of materials and processes, design analyses, component and full scale testing, and data collection and analysis on an aircraft by aircraft basis, to validate analyses and accurately predict fatigue damage for the optimization of inspection intervals and maximization of aircraft availability. The A-10 OEM Team continues to be a key member of the A-10 ASIP Team, providing loads and structures analysis, performing full scale and component testing, developing structural reinforcements and non-destructive inspection techniques to prevent structural failure, analyzing manufacturing methods for aircraft improvements and providing overall weapons system expertise for the support of the warfighter.

HTKA.hu Haditechnikai összefoglaló Lézervezérlés
Hu. text: Bombáknál és rakétáknál is alkalmazott rávezetési forma, de az nyugati légierőkben érdekes módon a rakétáknál viszonylag ritka, a lézervezérlésű bombák számítanak elterjedtnek. Ilyen kategóriájú pl. a már emlegetett "Paveway" család tagjai. A bombák jellemzően LGB-xy típusjelzéssel bírnak.
A szovjet/orosz Kh-25L és Kh-29L rakéták is ilyen rávezetésűek, az AGM-65 Maverick egyik változata is. Egyes szovjet/orosz KAB bombák szintén ilyen vezérléssel bírnak.
A célra vezetéshez a giroszkóppal stabilizált lézersugarat folyamatosan a célponton kell tartani, ez
„világítja” meg a célt, amit az optikai rendszer „lát” és a megvilágított („megfestett”) pontba csapódik be a
bomba, ha minden rendben történik. A megvilágítás nem csak az indító repülőgépről történhet, hanem
például másik repülőgépről, pilótanélküli repülőeszközről, helikopterről vagy akár földi csapatok által is. A "Sivatagi Vihar" alatt az MRCA Panavia 'Tornado' IDS (Multi-Role Combat Aircraft - Interdiction Strike Fighter version) - (Többfeladatú Harci Gép - Behatoló csapásmérő változat) gépek számára az ősrégi RAF (Royal Air Force) Blackburn B.103 /Hawker Siddeley HS 'Buccaneer' gépek jelölték meg a célokat.
A célmegjelölést, céltávolság-mérést és azonosítást nagy szögtartományban elforgatható infravörös
kamera segíti autonóm alkalmazáskor, amikor a bombát hordozó gép maga keresi és világítja meg a
célpontot. A cél megvilágítása a kamerával történő célra pozícionálás után történik, ezek össze vannak
szinkronizálva, tehát ahova a kamera néz, oda világít a célmegjelölő lézer is. A kamera mozgása
szinkronizálható a radar célkijelölő üzemmódjával levegő-föld üzemmódban, tehát a már korábban
ismertetett SAR radar üzemmód alkalmazásával a támadó gép viszonylag részletes képet kap a célpontról,
és oda állítja be az infravörös kamerát. A kamera nagyfelbontású képével közelebbről már a részletek is
kivehetőek, a célzást végrehajtják, majd a bombát lehet oldani.
Az bombaoldásnak viszonylag pontosnak kell lennie, a lézeres csak az utolsó néhány másodpercben
világítja meg célt, különben a bomba folyamatos korrekciókat végezne, ami miatt a bomba mozgási
energiája csökkenne, a célpontig el sem repülne a bomba folyamatos „laffogása” miatt. A lézeres
rávezetésnél pontosabb megfogalmazás, hogy végfázisban korrigált zuhanású bombákról van szó.
Hátránya ennek a vezérlési módnak, hogy párás, rossz időben nem használható és egyszerre csak egy cél
támadható ezzel a módszerrel, ha autonóm módon alkalmazzák a fegyvert leoldó repülőgép fedélzetéről.
Egymáshoz közel levő célok esetén különböző frekvenciájú lézerekkel világítják meg a célokat, hogy ne
ugyanarra a célra álljon rá az összes bomba. Tehát, ha mondjuk egy földi előretolt megfigyelő csoport képes
egyszerre több célt megvilágítani, akkor egyetlen gép több leoldott bombája eltalálhat több különböző
célpontot, ha egyetlen bombaoldásból a bombák kinematikailag képesek az összes célpontot elérni.
Az infravörös kamerák az idők folyamán persze egyre fejlettebbek lettek, felbontásuk nőtt, a giro stabilizálás pontosabbá vált, a rendszerek megbízhatósága egyre magasabb fokot ért el.
Az első generációs célmegjelölő és infravörös kamera rendszerek közé tartozott az AN/AVQ-10 Pave
Spike167 és az AN/AVQ-26 Pave Tack.168 Az előbbit elsődlegesen az USAF F-4 Phantom II gépei számára fejlesztették ki, a másodikat viszont nagy tömege és légellenállása miatt lényegében csak az F-111F és az ausztrál (RAAF) F-111C "Raven" gépek használták.
A második generációba tartozó rendszer a LANTIRN remdszer,169 ami lényegében két felfüggeszthető
konténer kombinációjából állt. Az AN/AAQ-13 navigációs és az AN/AAQ-14 célkijelölő konténerből állt. Az első konténerben egy fixen előrenéző infravörös kamera volt és a terepkövető radar, másik konténerben
volt forgatható infravörös kamera és a lézeres célmegjelölő- és távolságmérő. A Sivatagi Vihar idején kis
számban már rendelkezésre álltak ezek az eszközök, F-15E vadászbombázók használták, de csak minden
169 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WsebiYf8YI A videón látható a már említett laffogás is 6:39-nél.
negyedik gépre jutott egy konténer, a többi gép számára az egyetlen hordozó világította meg a célt, ezt
hívják „buddy lasing” eljárásnak. A LANTIRN célkijelölő konténere használható önmagában, a navigációs
konténer nélkül is.
AN/AAQ-28 LITENING következő generációt képviselő célmegjelölő konténer a nyugati légierőkben.
Különlegessége, hogy izraeli tervezésű, a Northrop-Grumman csak később kapcsolódott be. Az első
változatot szokás szerint többször továbbfejlesztették, a legutolsó változata elvileg már a később
kifejlesztett AN/AAQ-33 Sniper célmegjelölőt is felülmúlja, de minimum egyazon színvonalon vannak a
nyújtott képességeik alapján.
A fentiekhez hasonló a francia Damocles és az angol TIALD. Az előbbi a 2000-es évek gyermeke, a TIALDa hidegháború végén készült el. A Sivatagi Vihar alatt alig néhány Tornado csapásmérő átalakítása
fejeződött be, azok jelölték meg a célt a többi Tornado számára, más esetekben az akkor már igencsak
koros Blackburn/Hawker Siddeley Buccaneer gépek jelölték meg a célt a szintén korosabb Pave Spike
konténereikkel.
Az szovjet / orosz csapásmérők tudtommal nem létezik ilyen célmegjelölő konténer, legfeljebb
prototípus szintjén, mint lehetséges exportcikk. Oroszország évek óta próbálkozik a francia Damocles
célmegjelölő beszerzésével. A MiG-27, Szu-22, Szu-24 és Szu-25 típusok orrában vagy a törzs alatt, az orrész alatt beépítve találhatóak az infravörös célmegjelölő céltávmérő vagy TV/infravörös képalkotó rendszerek. HTKA.hu Haditechnikai összefoglaló PDF alapján (Haditechnikai Kerekasztal)

Hu. text: Amennyiben a hordozó gép nem rendelkezik autonóm módon történő alkalmazáshoz szükséges
célmegjelölővel, akkor szükséges olyan berendezés, amivel képes megtalálni a megvilágított célpontot.
Ilyen eszköz például az A-10A Thunderbolt II és az A-7 Corsair II egyes változatán használt AN/AAS-35 Pave Penny. (Laser spot tracker.) Elméletileg elképzelhető olyan bombaoldási / célzási módszer is, hogy szóban közlik a géppel, hogy a célpont „nagyjából” – a fent említett megvilágítási korlátot és a bombán levő lézer detektor látószögét figyelembe véve – merre van, hogy a bombát a megfelelő helyre lehessen dobni, de ilyenről részletes leírást nem találtam. Azonban olyat sem, ami alátámasztaná, hogy az MRCA Tornado csapásmérőkön volt laser spot tracker... http://htka.hu/  alapján:

- CASClose Air Support.- Közvetlen légi támogató bevetés, de FACP (Forward Air Controller Post) - ERIP - Előretolt Repülésirányító Pont (Földi vagy Légi)/JTAC segítsége nélkül, csak az AWACS (Airborne Early Warning & Control System – Levegőbe Telepített Korai Előrejelző és Irányító Rendszer LTKEIR)  vagy E-8 "Joint Star" gép rávezetésével.
- On call CAS – A FAC (Forward Air Controller) ERIP (Előretolt Repülésirányító Pont) vagy JTAC (Joint Terminal Air Controller) EHLI (Egyesített Harcászati/Végponti Légi Irányító) ezeket a bevetéseket repülő gépeket irányítja. Közvetlen támogató bevetés a fronton (az Ellenséggel közvetlen harcérintkezésben lévő csapatok részére) küzdőknek. Harckocsik, páncélozott szállítójárművek, gyalogság és tábori tüzér ütegek - harcrendi elemek a fő célpontok. A gépek a frontvonaltól néhány perc repülési távolságra vagy egy kijelölt szárazföldi egység/alegység közelében operálnak.
   - Repülőtéri (hdm. reptér) készültségből (from Airfield Readiness) vagy
   - Őrjáratozási Légtérből -ÖL- (fom Patrol Airspace)
Ha nincs fenyegetés, akkor a váltás megérkezése után, az őrjáratozási idő letelte vagy az összes fegyverzet elhasználása után hazatérnek, de a "hívás" harceljárás esetén nagyon hamar rendelkezésre állnak. Egy adott körzet vagy frontszakaszért felelnek a gépek adott ideig. Nagyon nagy terület és alacsony intenzitás esetén a nagy hatótáv (hosszú őrjáratozási idő) nem hátrány, így lett CAS képességgel bíró "harcászati" gép még az interkontinentális hadászati nehézbombázókból B-52 is az USAF állományában.
- Pre plan CAS – Ismert-Előre megadott célpontok elleni támadó bevetés harceljárás, gyakran FAC segítség nélkül. Akkor jellemző ez mikor a frontvonal merev és jól behatárolható.
- Interdiction – Közvetlenül a front felé tartó erősítés, menetoszlopok és a logisztika célok megsemmisítése.
Kicsit mélyebben berepülés a front/harcérintkezési vonal mögé, a felvonuló szétbontakozás előtt vagy alatt lévő csapatok megsemmisítése a cél. Mivel az ellenség ilyenkor még nincs szétbontakozva a nagy célsűrűség miatt – mint egy menetoszlopban – iszonyatos pusztításra képes néhány kazettás bomba is. -Végtelen nagy térközzel meg nem haladhat egy menetoszlop, mert a világ összes útja sem lenne elég a felvonuláshoz.

In 1984, the NATO held an exercise on the German Highway, known as the Autobahn, to test one of the contingency plans in case the regular airbases were taken out by a Soviet attack.
A purposely build 2600 meter stretch of highway of the A-29 was tested as A-10 Thunderbolts, C-130 Hercules transports and F-15 and F-16 fighters landed on the makeshift runway. After landing, the planes were refueled from dispatched trucks and then took off from the highway.

The Henschel Hs 129 was a World War II ground-attack aircraft fielded by the German Luftwaffe. In combat service the Hs 129 lacked a sufficient chance to prove itself; the aircraft was produced in relatively small numbers and deployed during a time when the Luftwaffe was unable to protect them from attack. Rudolf-Heinz Ruffer scored a large number of his 80 Soviet tank kills in the Hs 129.

Is an Argentine ground-attack and counter-insurgency (COIN) aircraft manufactured by the Fábrica Militar de Aviones. It is a low-wing twin-turboprop all-metal monoplane with retractable landing gear, capable of operating from unprepared strips when operationally required. The type saw action during the Falklands War and the Sri Lankan Civil War. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FMA_IA_58_Pucara     below: MedRes!

Espanol text: El FMA IA-58 Pucará (en quechua, ‘fortaleza’) es un bimotor turbohélice de diseño y construcción argentina(designación Fábrica Militar de Aviones), que voló por primera vez el 20 de agosto de 1969.Está diseñado para operar en pequeñas, y no necesariamente preparadas, pistas de tierra, en posiciones de combate adelantadas. Su misión primordial es la de apoyo a tierra, antihelicópteros y especialmente misiones COIN (contrainsurgencia). Esta aeronave es inusual debido a su cabina en tándem en un bimotor a hélice, sin embargo, comparte similitudes con el OV-10 Bronco estadounidense. Participó activamente en la Guerra de Malvinas, siendo utilizado por la Fuerza Aérea Argentina para misiones de apoyo cercano a fuerzas del Ejercito Argentino, como también para el ataque de campamentos y helicópteros ingleses. También fue utilizado en combate contrainsurgente por la Fuerza Aérea Colombiana y por la Fuerza Aérea de Sri Lanka.

The aircraft is designed to fly with one engine, one tail, one elevator and half a wing torn off. The self-sealing fuel tanks are protected by fire-retardant foam. Additionally, the main landing gear is designed so that the wheels are retracted so as to make gear-up landings easier to control and less damaging to the aircraft's underside. They also are all hinged toward the rear of the aircraft, so if landing gear hydraulic power is lost, the pilot can simply drop the gear and a combination of gravity and wind resistance will open and lock the gear in place.

The Sukhoi Su-25 "Grach" (meaning rook; NATO reporting name: "Frogfoot") is a single-seat, twin-engine jet aircraft developed in the Soviet Union by the Sukhoi Design Bureau. It was designed to provide close air supportfor the Soviet Ground Forces. The first prototype made its maiden flight on 22 February 1975. After testing, the aircraft went into series production in 1978 at Tbilisi in the Soviet Republic of Georgia.
Early variants included the Su-25UB two-seat trainer, the Su-25BM for target-towing, and the Su-25K for export customers. Some aircraft were being upgraded to Su-25SM standard in 2012. The Su-25T and the Su-25TM (also known as the Su-39) were further developments, not produced in significant numbers. The Su-25, and theSu-34, were the only armoured, fixed-wing aircraft in production in 2007. Su-25s are in service with Russia, other CIS states, and export customers.
The type has seen combat in several conflicts during its more than 30 years in service. It was heavily involved in the Soviet war in Afghanistan, flying counter-insurgency missions against the Mujahideen. The Iraqi Air Forceemployed Su-25s against Iran during the 1980–88 Iran–Iraq War. Most were later destroyed or flown to Iran in the 1991 Persian Gulf War. Abkhazian separatists used Su-25s during the Abkhazian War from 1992 to 1993. The Macedonian Air Force used Su-25s against Albanian insurgents in the 2001 Macedonia conflict and, in 2008, Georgia and Russia both used Su-25s in the Russo-Georgian War. African states, including the Ivory Coast, Chad, and Sudan have used the Su-25 in local insurgencies and civil wars. Recently the Su-25 has seen service in the Russian intervention in the Syrian Civil War.

The A-10 Warthog is equipped with this version of the ACES II. It replaced an Escapac seat used in the prototypes and early aircraft. This version differs from the rest of the basic side-pull ACES II seats (F-15, F-117) in the configuration of the headrest canopy breakers, and the side-pull handles. The picture below shows the size difference between the handles on the A-10 (right) and the F-15 (left). The F-15 seats originally had no canopy breakers as in the example shown, but were later fit with a single canopy breaker. The F-117 has a metal canopy frame which precludes the use of a canopy breaker. The handles on the F-117 closely resemble the A-10 handles. http://www.ejectionsite.com/a10seat.htm

The A-10 is an exceptionally survivable aircraft with excellent pilot protection. Its strong airframe can survive direct hits from armor-piercing and high-explosive projectiles up to 23 mm. The aircraft has triple redundancy in its flight systems, with mechanical systems to back up double-redundant hydraulic systems. This permits pilots to still fly when hydraulic power or part of a wing is lost using the Manual Reversion Flight Control System (MRFCS). In manual reversion mode, the A-10 is sufficiently controllable under favorable conditions to return to friendly airspace.
The cockpit and parts of the flight-control system are protected by 900 pounds (408 kg) of titanium armor, referred to as a titanium "bathtub". The tub has been tested to withstand strikes from 23 mm cannon fire and some strikes from 57 mm rounds. It is made up of titanium plates with thicknesses from ½ inch to 1½ inches determined by a study of likely trajectories and deflection angles. This protection comes at a cost, though; the armor itself weighs almost 6% of the entire aircraft‘s empty weight. To protect the pilot from the fragmentation likely to be created from impact of a shell, any interior surface of the tub that is directly exposed to the pilot is covered by a multi-layer Kevlar spall shield. The canopy consists of a bullet-proof diffusion-bonded stretched-acrylic to withstand small arms fire and is resistant to spalling. The front windscreen offers shielding resistant to 20 mm cannon fire.

At the heart of the A-10 egress system is the Advanced Concept Ejection Seat II. 
Better known as ACES II, the seat was developed in the early 1970s as a way to standardize to one type of seat. One benefit to having a standardized seat was a reduction in training for both pilots and maintainers, who previously needed to be trained in a variety of seats. Another design goal was to have better performance in a variety of conditions, such as low or adverse altitudes, including "Zero-Zero", the lowest point in the ejection envelope or zero altitude, zero speed. 
Origianlly maunfactured by McDonnell-Douglas Corporation, and later Weber Aircraft Company, more than 8,000 seats have been made. 
According to the official Air Force records, the seat has had a success rate of 94.4 percent in envelope, and 89.9 percent when including out of envelope ejections. 
While much of that success rate is due to the design of the system, even the best designed product is only as good as the maintenance it routinely receives. 
In the case of the 442nd Fighter Wing, the ACES II seats here are among the best maintained.

The forward area of the cockpit consists of a variety of instruments, gauges, displays and controls. The front dash is divided into four primary areas: left, center, right, and top. We‘ll discuss each of these in detail.The cockpit of the A-10C contains three primary instrument panels that include gauges and indicators that display flight parameters, aircraft system states, engine state, control positions, and system warnings. Owing to the single-pilot operation of the A-10C cockpit, all flight and weapon system controls must be readily accessible to the pilot. This has led to a rather crowded cockpit that at first can seem quite intimidating! With the addition of two Multifunction Color Displays (MFCD), many of the operations have been streamlined and simplified compared to the older A-10A model. 
aboveMedRes! A-10A
Over the last 30 years, the A-10 has seen numerous improvements and most of these have had to do with the avionics systems. Although the A-10 avionics systems began rather simple, they have evolved over the years with some of the more notable changes:
- Multiple LASTE versions
- Addition of GPS navigation and integration with INS (EGI)
- Suite 2 A-10A
- Suite 3 A-10C (subject of this simulation)
above: MedRes! A-10C cockpit overview: http://asasdeferro.blogspot.com

above: MedRes! A-10A

above: NoHigher! Fairchild-670 HiFi Audio front panel www.kravaudio.com

above: MedRes! www.youtube.com
Regarding the A-10C, the avionics are a combination of old and new. Most of the engine, fuel, hydraulics, electrical, flight control, emergency and lighting systems have remained the same since the first A-10A went operational. However, the current A-10C has a great many differences in regards to the integrated weapon and navigation system, sensor usage (targeting pod), communications, datalink, and systems monitoring.
The most visibly obvious result of the upgrades has been to the cockpit of the A-10C. The Precision Engagement (PE) Modification Program made several important changes to the cockpit to support the avionics upgrades:
- New control stick based on the F-16 stick. Although it is a full-deflection stick (unlike the F-16), it has a much greater level of functionality compared to the older stick based on the F-4 Phantom-II stick.
- The right throttle of the throttle quadrant has been removed and replaced by the same left throttle used in the F-15E. As with the new control stick, the new left throttle provides an additional level of control and functionality.
- Below the HUD is the new Up Front Control Panel (UFC) and this is a combination of buttons and rocker switches that allow the pilot to more easily input data and control sub-systems at eye-level.
- Dominating the new front dash of the A-10C are two 5x5 inch Multi-Function Color Displays (MFCD). Both MFCD can display a wide variety of data including the Tactical Awareness Display (TAD) with moving map, Targeting Pod (TGP) video, Maverick (MAV) seeker video, Digital Stores Management System (DSMS), Aircraft Status (STAT), and repeat data from the EGI navigation system. This essentially added a glass cockpit to the A-10 and brought it into the 21st century.
- Replacing the old Armament Control Panel (ACP) of the A-10A has been the Armament HUD Control Panel (AHCP). Most of the functions of the ACP have been moved to the DSMS page on an MFCD and the AHCP now controls basic power and operating mode of the major aircraft weapon, sensor and navigation systems.

Pitch Ladder - Comes in +/-5 degree increments, helps you determine the pitch angle of your aircraft. The "-- --" line with no number beside it is the 0-degree pitch or the "horizon." The pitch ladder (and the FPM) may be off-set to one side during windy conditions.
TVV - Total Velocity Vector, otherwise known as the Flight Path Marker or FPM. Basically this is where your aircraft is heading. Point and hold it to a spot on the ground and your aircraft will crash to that spot.
G - Displays the current G-load on the aircraft.
Speed - Current indicated airspeed for the aircraft.
Altitude - Barometric altitude, or altitude above sea level. Note that when you are over high terrain (mountains, for example), you may crash into terrain even though the altemeter says you are several thousand feet above SEA level.
Heading Tape - Shows the direction of travel or magnetic heading.
Waypoint/TDC - Shows the location of the currently-selected waypoint.
Waypoint Info Box - Shows you information regarding the selected waypoint: the radar altitude, the waypoint (or steerpoint) number and ID, distance to steerpoint and target elevation, time to go (TTG, otherwise known as ETA) and time on target [delta], and finally, current time.
Heads Up Display Area Above Dash:
The area over the front dash primarily consists of the Heads Up Display (HUD) and the Up Front Controller (UFC) beneath the HUD. This area also has a set of gauges and lights.
1. Standby compass
2. Aerial refueling status indicator
3. Heads Up Display (HUD)
4. Up Front Controller (UFC)
5. Accelerometer (G-meter)
6. Angle of attack indexer
The HUD of the A-10C is used for two primary functions. When the IFFCC switch is in the TEST position, the HUD displays a series of menus that allow you to configure the IFFCC system. These menus are navigated through using the UFC.
- SEL + and – moves the line selection
- DATA cycles a line selection
- ENTER selects the line option selected
When the IFFCC switch is placed in the ON position though, navigation, sensor and weapon information is displayed on the HUD.
 above & below: MedRes!  www.simhq.com
HUD - In time, you will get to know your HUD like your best friend. It will show you tons of information and guide you to your target, as well as help you put your goodies square on the bad guy's lap.
UFC - The UFC (Up Front Controller) is one of the most useful panels in the A10, allowing you to interact with the A10's systems and input preferred settings.
RWR - Simply detects any radar sites in your immediate area. It may also show a missile warning if a radar-guided missile is fired.
Left/Right MFD - Multi-function displays show TGP or Mav video, weapon status, TAD, etc.
AHCP - Armament HUD Control Panel, where some of the most important switches are located.
NMSP - "Nimsip" allows you to select the navigation mode to be used.
Fuel system control - Controls fuel pumps and how the fuel feeds into the engines.
LASTE - Switches for EAC, RDR ALTM, and autopilot modes are here.
Radios - Can be safely ignored in MP, but useful in TARS or when playing campaigns.
SAS Panel - Dampens and provides turn coordination in flight, but most useful for keeping the gun steady in PAC-assisted guns attacks.
Fuel gauge - Although the A10C's turbine engines are fuel-efficient, it's a good idea to keep an eye on fuel state.
Countermeasures - Controls the countermeasure program used, how many chaff/flares to release, cycle, interval, etc.
Caution light panel - Alerts the pilot of any systems damage.
Electrical panel - Main panel for the electrical systems of the A10.
CDU - What makes A10C a study sim? The CDU. I suspect you can program your VCR, Tivo, and coffeemaker from here.
AAP - Provides power to the CDU and EGI, and controls which mode the TAD displays waypoints with.
TACAN and ILS - Nav aids for those flying at night/bad weather or those who just have fun with IFR flying.
Lighting panel - Controls the Nav, position, and strobe lights and formation lights.

MULTIFUNCTION COLOR DISPLAY (MFCD):
An important improvement between the older A-10A and the A-10C was the inclusion of two 5x5 inch MFCD. This has streamlined the data-flow to the pilot and made much more information readily accessible.
The primary purpose of the MFCDs is to display a wealth of data over a variety of pages. The primary MFCD pages of the A-10C include:
- Data Transfer System (DTS) Page. Load navigation and weapon data from the mission planner into the aircraft. In the real-world, this would be done with a Data Transfer Cartridge that loads data from the Mission Planning Software onto the aircraft.
- Display Program (DP) Page. Configure which page-links are to be displayed on the bottom of each MFCD.
- Status (STAT) Page. Review status of A-10C sub-systems.
- Digital Stores Management System (DSMS) Page. Manage the stores of the aircraft.
- Tactical Awareness Display (TAD) Page. Use the digital, moving map for navigation, targeting, and datalink purposes.
- Targeting Pod (TGP) Page. Use the Litening II AT targeting pod.
- Maverick (MAV) Page. Employ various models of the AGM-65 Maverick air-to-surface missile. 
- Message (MSG) Page. Send and receive text messages with other units on SADL datalink network. 
- Control Data Unit (CDU) Repeater Page. View the CDU screen display on an MFCD.

Multifunction Color Display (MFCD):
The A-10C contains two Multifunction Color Displays (MFCDs) that allow display of multiple system pages (DTS, TAD, DSMS, etc.). Information displayed on the MFCDs is derived from the Central Interface Control Unit (CICU). As such, the MFCDs are activated and deactivated by the CICU toggle switch on the Armament HUD Control panel (AHCP). Please refer to the MFCD Pages Chapter for further details about the MFCD. - Adjust Display, Video Contrast, Day / Night Select, Symbol Brightness, Display Brightness, Backlight Brightness.
Each MFCD is 5x5 inches and has five Option Select Buttons (OSB) on each of the four sides (20 total). These OSB will have various functions depending on the MFCD page and page function.
- OSBs 1 – 5 are along the top of the MFCD
- OSBs 6 – 10 are along the right side of the MFCD
- OSBs 11 – 15 are along the bottom of the MFCD
- OSBs 16 – 20 are along the left side of the MFCD
To activate a button, you may either left mouse button on it our press the assigned keyboard key.
Each OSB is also Tool Tip context sensitive and you will receive a tool tip of the OSB function when you hover the mouse cursor over it.

Control Stick:
The primary function of the control stick is to provide pitch and roll commands to maneuver the aircraft. Pushing and pulling on the stick affects aircraft pitch (move elevators) and moving the stick from side to side inputs roll (move the ailerons).
Note that you can also use the trim hat to adjust pitch and roll stick neutral settings.
The stick has a number of buttons and hats that allow you to manipulate the various systems of the A-10C without having to take your hands off the stick. The A-10C stick differs from the older A-10A stick that was based on the control stick of the F-4 Phantom II. The A-10C stick on the other hand is based on the F-16 Viper stick. However, unlike the side-mounted F-16 stick that is pressure based and barely moves, the A-10C stick is a full-motion stick that is centrally mounted like the A-10A stick.
Depending on selected Sensor Of Interest (SOI), many of the stick switches and buttons can have multiple functions. The most common means to set the SOI is by use of the Coolie Hat on the throttles. Possible SOI may include:
- Tactical Awareness Display (TAD) active
- Targeting Pod (TGP)
- Heads Up Display (HUD)
- AIM-9 Air-to-Air Missile
- AGM-65 Maverick Air-to-Ground Missile (MAV)
Additionally, many of the buttons and switches have alternate functions if they are held down for a Short period or a Long period.
ThrottlesThe throttles are your primary means of controlling the thrust of your two TF-34-GE-100A engines. If you want to increase thrust, push the throttles forward and if you want to decrease thrust pull them back. When both the left and right throttles are all the way back, the engines are shut down (OFF). However, moving them forward and over the hump, it will initiate the auto-start (assuming other startup steps are first accomplished) and the engines will be at IDLE power.
The left throttle is the same left throttle as found in the older A-10A and the right throttle is taken from the F-15E Strike Eagle-II.
- Linked throttles up
- Linked throttles down
- Left throttle up
- Left throttle down
- Right throttle up
- Right throttle down
On both throttles are several switches and buttons that allow you to control aircraft systems. Like the control stick, the function of a switch or button will often vary according to the selected Sensor of Interest (SOI). The most common means to set the SOI is by use of the Coolie Hat on the throttles. Also like the control stick, the time duration an input is made (Short or Long) can determine the output function of the control.

Hu. text: Blogger véleménye az A-10-ről:
Számomra a leginkább tetsző/értékelt modern harci repülőgép már régóta. Megdöbbentem az USA felső vezetésének tudattalanságán és felelőtlenségén mikor kivonták az európai rendszerből és a java amerikai támaszpontról. Az eredeti terv az volt, hogy az A-10 pilótákat átképzik V. generációs Lockheed-Martin JSF F-35 "Lightning-II"-re. Számomra ez a még nem rendszeresített gép egy "Díszpinty" ami a távoli jövőnek készült messze nem a szükséges tulajdonságokkal és felesleges kialakításokkal. marketing meg céges szempontból viszont nagyon jó. Tehát mikor "tele van vassal a levegő" a leghatékonyabb gép a "Warthog".
Az A-10 csatarepülőgép úgy a magas mint az alacsony intenzitású fegyveres küzdelemben kimagaslóan megállja a helyét. - A csatarepülőgép mint kategória nem más, mint a szárazföldi csapatok tűztámogatására alkotott harceszköz mely a levegőből mér csapást az ellenséges elsősorban "kemény" célpontokra.  Ehhez egy kiváló fegyverzetet a helyszínre kell vinni, ott sikerrel alkalmazni, túlélve az ellenséges behatásokat a védett kialakítással és manőverezéssel az újra alkalmazás érdekében.
Legfőbb harci tulajdonságai a harckocsikhoz hasonlóan; összességében; "Kiváló" 5-ös
1. Tűzerő: "5" (Lőtávolság, Lő-Pontosság, pusztítóeszköz mennyiség, Tűzsűrűség, Páncélátütő képesség.) 
2. Védettség-Túlélőképesség: "4" (Lövedékállóság-Bulletproof, Becsapódás védettség-Crashwortyness)
3. Manőverezőképesség: "5" (Műrepülés, Harcászati manőver)
4. Kiszolgálás: "5" (Újra bevetésre előkészítés, Harctéri javítás, Földi-Légi üzemeltetés)
Amit picit módosítanék rajta az a kabin-plexi páncélüvegesre átalakítása hasonlóan a Hs 129 és Mi-28-hoz.
Az US gyártmányú kisebb harci gépek közül ezt a típust sem exportálták, akárcsak a Grumman A-6 Intrudert és az EA-6B Prowlert támadó és EHC gépeket sem.

Hu. text: HTKA: A harci repülőgépeket 10-12 alapvető képességgel lehet jellemezni és osztályozni
- Maximális sebesség valós harci konfigurációban (légiharc/csapásmérés) alacsonyan / magasan.
- Hatótávolság?- Harcászati hatósugár (akciórádiusz) AAR - Légiutántöltési képesség
- Szupercirkálás? (Tartós hangsebesség feletti <1M repülés) (A-10-nél nem fontos!)
- Tolóerő/tömeg arány 60-70% üzemanyaggal és 4-6 darab légiharcrakétával. Hajtómű üzembiztossága és élettartama.197
- Fegyverzet mennyisége, minősége. Többfeladatos vagy sem, SEAD képesség megléte, stb. Ez utóbbi
szinte külön kategóriát képez, a többfeladatos gépek közül is csak egy nagyon kevés képes erre a
legmagasabb fokon, ez inkább már egyfajta „prémium kategória”. Nagyon drága és különleges
197 Valójában a gép fajlagos teljesítmény-felesleg (specific excess power) képesség, kevesen engedhetik meg maguknak – nem is szükséges sok ország számára – de komoly légvédelem ellen ilyen képesség nélkül operálni elég merész, vagy egyenesen öngyilkosság.
- Radar + egyéb avionika. (TFR,198 HMS, JHMCS,199 IRST, AESA radar stb.)
- Kabin ergonómia (HOTAS, FBW, Ejection seat, Lövedék és Földhöz csapódási Védettség).
- Aerodinamikai kialakítása a gépnek. (Instabil kialakítás, törzs/szárny átmenet, LERX,200 stb.)
- Csökkentett észlelhetőség.(Radar, Hang, Infravörös)
- Önvédelmi képességek, integrált elektronikai zavaró berendezés, zavarótöltetek száma, egyéb
szenzorok, amik önvédelmi képességet növelik, vontatott csali, stb.

The General Electric GE GAU-8/A Avenger is a 30 mm hydraulically driven seven-barrel Gatling-type autocannonthat is typically mounted in the United States Air Force's Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II. Designed specifically for the anti-tank role, the Avenger delivers very powerful rounds at a high rate of fire. The GAU-8/A is also used in the Goalkeeper CIWS ship weapon system, which provides defense against short-range threats such as highly maneuverable missiles, aircraft and fast maneuvering surface vessels.

Hu. text: Mit jelent a “szegényített urán” kifejezés?
A természetben előforduló uránban kétféle izotóp található meg: a 235-ös tömegszámú uránizotóp 0,72%, míg a 238-as 99,28%-ot képvisel. Az atomerőművek számára a ritkább 235-ös izotóp az értékes, ezért az atomerőművi üzemanyaghoz az uránt dúsítják. Ez azt jelenti, hogy az ún. dúsító üzemekben a 235-ös tömegszámú izotóp részarányát az üzemanyagban a természetes 0,72%-ról 3-5%-ra növelik meg. (Kísérleti és hadi alkalmazásoknál a dúsítás mértéke akár 90% vagy afölötti is lehet.) Az eljárás során visszamaradó uránban ennek következtében a 235-ös izotóp részaránya mintegy 0,2%-ra lecsökken. A dúsítás ezen melléktermékét nevezik szegényített uránnak (angolul depleted uranium), hiszen az a 235-ös uránizotópban szegény. (A fentiek szerint tehát helytelen és értelmetlen a magyar sajtóban gyakran használt “csökkentett urántartalmú bomba”, “gyengített urántartalmú lövedék”, “legyengített urán” kifejezések használata.)
Mivel a 235-ös uránizotóp radioaktivitása magasabb, mint a 238-as tömegszámúé, ezért a szegényített urán radioaktivitása mintegy 40%-kal kisebb (!), mint a természetes uráné. .... folyt:
