Fairchild C-82 Packet : The Military and Civil History

Originally designed as a cargo and paratroop transport during World War II, the Fairchild C-82 Packet is today mainly remembered for its starring role in the Hollywood film The Flight of the Phoenix (1965).
Its ungainly appearance earned it the nickname "the flying boxcar" but the aircraft was the first to achieve practical end-loading and aerial delivery of cargoes. Its outsized capacity served the U.S. military's needs for more than ten years-civilian operators flew it in remote locations like Alaska and South America for a further three decades.

This book provides a comprehensive history of the C-82, detailing each of the 224 aircraft built, with technical diagrams, multiple appendices and more than 200 photos.

Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II : The 'Warthog' Ground Attack Aircraft

Hard lessons from the Second World War, that were reinforced by the bitter experience of the Vietnam War two decades later, showed that it was both impracticable and highly non-cost efficient to use supersonic fighter jets in the close air support mission.
A requirement was therefore drawn up for an aeroplane capable of carrying a heavy and varied load of ordnance, which had good endurance and unprecedented manoeuvrability, and which could survive heavy ground fire - thus the Fairchild-Republic A-10A Close Support aircraft was born. But, by the time it came into service her role had changed to that of a tank-buster in the defence of Western Europe in the face of the overwhelming numbers of Soviet battle armour.

With her straight wing, twin tails and turbine engines mounted high on her rear fuselage, this single-seat aircraft certainly presented a unique appearance. But all these features served a vital role, as Peter C. Smith explains in this highly detailed study.
Although the Warthog's expected missions on the plains of Germany did not materialise, she did destroy hundreds of Soviet-built tanks during the Gulf wars. The A-10 has also flown almost continuous missions over the Balkans, against the Taliban in Afghanistan, and ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

In this beautifully-illustrated and comprehensive volume, Peter C Smith brings the A-10's incredible story right up to date.

A-10 Thunderbolt

Die A-10 Thunderbolt II ist ein absolutes Ausnahmeflugzeug und in dieser Form einmalig auf der Welt. Sie wurde ursprünglich für den Einsatz auf dem europäischen Gefechtsfeld entworfen.
Ihre Hauptwaffe, die monströse siebenläufige Revolverkanone, Kal. 30 mm, verschiesst unfassbare 65 Schuss pro Sekunde. Kein Wunder, dass die A-10 als "Panzerknacker" gilt und für genau diese Rolle auch gebaut wurde.

A-10 Thunderbolt II Units of Operation Enduring Freedom, 2002-07 (Osprey)

The A-10 was never a favourite amongst the USAF's senior staff, and prior to Iraq's invasion of Kuwait in 1990 they had attempted to transfer the aircraft to the US Army and Marine Corps.
Reprieved from premature retirement, the A-10 would see combat in the Balkans during the mid-1990s and over Iraq in Operations Northern Watch and Southern Watch until Operation Iraqi Freedom began in 2003.
Following the 11 September 2001 attacks in the United States, the Bush administration responded with the instigation of Operation Enduring Freedom. A-10 aircraft first entered the fray during Operation Anaconda in March 2002. During Anaconda four A-10s flying from Pakistan provided 21 straight hours of FAC (A)/CAS coverage.
The untold story of the A-10 in Enduring Freedom is explored and presented as never before through first hand interviews and photography from those involved, along with official military achieves.

This title is the first of three planned covering the combat experience of the USAF's A-10 Thunderbolt II units.

Contents: Early years - Operation Anaconda - Bagram - Renewed fighting - Keeping the pressure on - Appendices.

A-10 Thunderbolt II Units of Operation Enduring Freedom 2008-14 (Part 2) (Osprey)

The untold story of A-10 units in Operation Enduring Freedom reaches its conclusion with this second of two volumes focusing on the type's combat missions in Afghanistan.
Featuring numerous first-hand accounts and photography from those who experienced the conflict, along with imagery from official military archives, this book offers a unique and detailed insight into the record of the A-10 in one of the 21st Century's most significant conflicts.

Initially, the A-10 Thunderbolt was not a favourite of the USAF, which, prior to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990, was hoping to shunt this Cold War relic onto the US Army and Marine Corps. But since then the 'Warthog', with its formidable armament, ruggedness and flexibility, has continually proven itself in combat and evolved into the world's premiere close support aircraft. In 2002 the Thunderbolt was at the forefront of Operation Enduring Freedom, the US occupation of Afghanistan.

Contents: From A to C - Returning to stay - Kandahar - Cas reset - To the end - Appendices.
