The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II, aka the Warthog, is a twin engine turbofan jet that entered service with the USAF in 1976. Its primary role is Close Air Support (or CAS) for friendly forces on the ground. A total of 716 A-10s have been built, and is the only USAF aircraft to be designed solely for the CAS role.

 

The A-10 was designed and built around a gun: the GAU-8 Avenger autocannon, and the A-10 uses its gun to primarily destroy tanks and other surface targets. The GAU-8 is capable of firing 65 rounds per second, or 3900 rounds a minute. The aircraft is also capable of carrying a large variety of weapons to include GPS and laser guided munitions.

 

The Jet-Eyes A-10 tag comes in 4 variants: Bi-Color, Olive Green (far right in pic), Green (second from right in pic), and Grey. These tags were all cut from the skin of a camouflage A-10A. The bi-colors vary in the colors of paint combinations and a couple are included in this variant due to the presence of stenciled text on the tag. The grey tags vary in the shade of grey with some being very dark and others lighter. The bi-color and grey are very limited in number. Many will have rivets and rivet holes and some of the artwork on these tags will be modified to accomodate for these artifacts. The V1 variant is the original variant and features subdued teeth and eye whereas the V2 variant is the new coloring, which features whiter teeth and eye. The artwork is otherwise the same. 

 

Warning: Jet-Eyes tags are cut from real aircraft components and skin. These tags are made of and covered in industrial paints and coatings. These materials and coatings can be dangerous and cause harm if inhaled or ingested. Not recommended for small children.
