Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove said Wednesday that the addition of A-10 Thunderbolts to his forces in Europe provided added deterrent as NATO and the U.S. European Command face new threats from Russia.

“It is clear that the capabilities these aircraft bring is needed” in the current environment, Breedlove, the supreme allied commander of NATO, said of the A-10s at a hearing of the House Armed Services Committee.

In response to questions from Rep. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., Breedlove singled out the anti-armor role of the A-10, dubbed the Warthog by ground troops, in close air support missions.

The A-10 is an amazing piece of hardware. It is basically a flying tank. The amount of punishment it can dish out is amazing. On the flip side, the amount of damage it can take and still keep flying remarkable.
