With a nickname like 'Warthog', it’s quite clear the A-10 is not a pretty aircraft. Mounted on its nose is one of the deadliest weapons ever to cruise the skies. Called the GAU-8/A Avenger, it is a 30mm cannon capable of firing up to 70 rounds of heavy ammunition per second. With a muzzle velocity of ¾ mile in one second, the shell is intended to penetrate even the strongest tank hull. The A-10, officially called the Thunderbolt II, was actually designed around the big cannon. The strange looking shape of the A-10 was a result of trying to provide as much protection for the pilot as possible. Another means of survivability is the great maneuverability. It can turn quickly and sharply, even evading radar-directed guns. The A-10 can carry up to eight tons of weapons on eight wing and three fuselage pylons.
