A-10 Warthog VS Tank – Epic Air-soft Battle
In The Above Video, you can See an Epic Air-soft Battle of A-10 vs tank
The A-10 Warthog is a 25,000-pound monster with a 57-foot wingspan and two General Electric TF34-GE-100A turbofans to get it up into the sky. This model, built by the folks at FliteTest, isn’t quite the same magnitude of craft, but it’s still pretty impressive that they got it in the sky.
A first prototype, this A-10 model is built out of foam board with two counter-rotating props to stand in for each of the two turbofan engines. It’s not the most high-tech model, but it is dirt cheap, at an estimated cost of 50 bucks for the airframe, and less than $200 for the whole thing.

Then there’s obviously the question of the cannon, and while this A-10 model didn’t have one for its maiden flight, the plan is to install an Airsoft cannon in future models. That will definitely add a lot of weight to subsequent builds, but considering the real A-10 is pretty much a plane built around a cannon, it’ll be a fitting engineering challenge.
In the meantime, this accomplishment is nothing to sneeze at.
