USAF A-10 Warthog that scored a simulated aerial victory against F-22 Raptor and F-16 Fighting Falcon

We don’t know exactly the story behind these kill marks and although the A-10 is really a badass machine it would be difficult for the world famous Hog scoring kills against F-16 and F-22 fighters.

Believe it or not here is an interesting image shows an A-10 Warthog featuring what they seem to be two kill marks of two (simulated) aerial victories scored against F-22 Raptor and F-16 Fighting Falcon Fighter jets

The interesting image in this post was taken by the famous photographer Peter Steehouwer (click here and browse his site to see his incredible shots) and shows an A-10 Warthog featuring what they seem to be two kill marks of two (simulated) aerial victories scored against F-16 and F-22 fighter aircraft.

According to some internet rumors, the A-10 in this photo would be a “demo bird” (most probably belonging to USAF Air Combat Command A-10 Demo Team) sporting the marks of aircraft from other demo teams such as F-22 and F-16 fighter jets which usually fly in formation together during airshows across the U.S.

Actually the Air Combat Command A-10C Thunderbolt II Demonstration Team, stationed out of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona, brings the aircraft to air shows around the country to showcase the unique combat capabilities of the A-10 “Warthog.”

They perform precision aerial manoeuvres while highlighting the mission and professionalism of the men and women of the United States Air Force.

The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is a single-seat, twin turbofan engine, straight-wing jet aircraft designed for close air support (CAS) of friendly ground troops, attacking armored vehicles and tanks, and providing quick-action support against enemy ground forces.

The General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine supersonic multirole fighter aircraft designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft.

The Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor is a fifth-generation, single-seat, twin-engine, all-weather stealth tactical fighter aircraft designed primarily as an air superiority fighter, but also has a ground attack, electronic warfare, and signal intelligence capabilities.
