This simulation puts you in the cockpit of the A-10 Thunderbolt II, which is also known as the "Warthog". As the game's name implies, it is used mainly to hunt enemy tanks, but also for destroying roads and bridges

You are armed with 30mm Avenger cannon which can fire around 70 times a second. Multiple camera angles are featured. Landing is automated and an accelerated time function is on offer.

Characters have full AI to act without your involvement, and will communicate with you in-flight. Actions in one mission affect another - something you failed to destroy in one mission can attack you later.

Version 1.5 re-released in 1991 added 7 new scenarios set during the Operation Desert Storm in Iraq.

German Index

German BPJS (the German public authority responsible for putting media on the index) argued that single buildings that can be bombed in the game are usually inhabited by humans who could get killed during the bombings. This is, according to German law, an act of cruelty against mankind, and therefore the game is put on the index in Germany.


While A-10 is supposed to be a single-seater attack plane, Dynamix chose to give you a backseater in order to add some "interaction".
