A-10 tank-killing “Warthog.” The A-10 carried the company tradition of having been given an unofficial name being nicknamed “Groundhog” or “Hawg.” This aircraft could operate in the thick of combat actions. Designed in such a way as to keep the aircraft aloft even after sustaining combat damage that would do in most any other airplane.
My concept was to convey a sense of drama as the missiles take flight reigning fire from the sky upon the enemy. As you view the plane in the foreground, we see the under belly glow just before its missile launch.
