The aircraft features better manoeuvrability at low-air speeds and altitude. It is capable of loitering near battle areas for extended periods of time and operate in low-ceiling and visibility conditions.

Equipped with a 30mm GAU-8/A Avenger Gatling-gun cannon, the aircraft will be able to fire 3,900 rounds a minute and can defeat an array of ground targets, including tanks.

Last year, the USAF had deployed 12 A-10 Thunderbolt II aircraft to Europe in order to support Nato’s Operation Atlantic Resolve.
