The A-10 Warthog is an aircraft that captured the imagination of many people for its strange ability to awe people. Of course the 30 mm cannon that is the heart of the aircraft has a lot to do with it, there is just no other aircraft that carries something that even comes close. But the aircraft also has a strange and outdated look, one that can only be described as downright ugly but functional.
Created with the pleasure of the user in mind this product is created by the new Aerosoft internal development team that took over 6 months to get it ready. We choose not 'simulate' many things that are just not possible in FS2004, so there are no switches that just 'work' but don't have any code behind it, all this effort was send to the things that could be made to work. The Warthog is just great for flying low and fast, still highly realistic but very different from hauling passengers from one airport to another. Time for some high adrenalin action in Flight Simulator!
