An A-10 Thunderbolt II deploys flairs over Afghanistan Nov. 12, 2008. A-10s provide close-air support to ground troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. The A-10's excellent maneuverability at low air speeds and altitude and its highly accurate weapons delivery make it an ideal aircraft for supporting coalition operations.
