THIS is my favorite modern plane. "Warthog" because it's "ugly", "flying tank" because it can take a severe beating. Despite both of those nicknames, it has such grace when it flies. The 30mm minigun that shreds armor plating like it's paper and how pilots made custom adaptations to extend it's service.
LUV it. Also, great shot!

I heard these can take one hell of a beating before it even begins to fail. Is it true?

It is built to survive, the pilot sits in a titanium bathtub, engines are separated so that if one is hit the other might survive. Ailerons anat is a bit over sized to have redundancy, the windscreen is armoured.

Fearsome predator for its size. Nice looking plane too. Especially fully loaded with nasties.

As always, good. :)
If I may ask you to try something. Put the same amount of sky around the A-10 or a bit more in front and behind... You donīt have to upload them, just tell me how it went. ;)

What do you mean by putting the same amount of sky around the A-10? Same amount of sky as what?

Now there is more air (blue) above and under the plane to the edge of the picture, Iīm suggesting having the same amount all around, if possible. Also having a more air in front and behind then over/under.
Iīm too short when I explain things, I have the same problem with my studies, I write too concentrated. ;)

You donīt have time... When you notice or hear the firing, the rounds (they travel faster then the sound) have already shredded you... :)

I looks almost docile in this view.
False advertising, indeed.
