The Fairchild Republic A-10 "Warthog" is a single-seat, twin-engine, straight-wing jet aircraft developed by Fairchild-Republic in the early 1970s. This is the only United States Air Force aircraft designed solely for close air support of ground forces.

The A-10 was built to attack tanks, armored vehicles, and other ground targets with limited air defenses.

It also provides airborne forward air control, guiding other aircraft against ground targets. Aircraft used primarily in this role are designated OA-10.

With a variety of upgrades and wing replacements, the A-10's service life has been extended to 2040.

The A-10 was designed around the GAU-8 Avenger, a rotary cannon that is the airplane's primary armament and the heaviest cannon ever mounted on an aircraft. The A-10's airframe was designed for survivability, and features 1,200 pounds of armor plating.

 

 

 

MIBOJETS A-10 "WARTHOG" is now available as a 5th generation kit. It features the popular gen 4 upgrades plus lots of new refinements and free packages that make Gen 5 the same value for money as Gen 4. Gen 5 is coming as fully electrically operated. No pneumatic system is present in the plane.

 

  • All new and factory installed in the airframe electric gear and brakes ( if gear option purchased )
  • Gear doors installed ( if gear option purchased )
  • Operating canopy system already installed ( if purchased as an option )
  • Rudder tab already installed  
  • Elevator system already installed

 

These work packages made at the factory by the Mibo team with specific setup rigs will save you 50 hours of work and will ensure a perfect operations of these critical components.

Additionally, the following items are included with the basic kit, which were to be purchased with the go-fly package previously. These are to be installed by the customer. Factory installation of the scale accessories is included in the extra work package listed in the accessories.

 

  • Scale gear struts included in the gear option
  • Pave penny pod and pylon included in the kit
  • GAU-8A scale cannon included with the kit
  • Fixed inboard slats included with the kit.
  • VHF/ AM antennas included with the kit
  • Ventral strake included with the kit
  • Cooling system intake included with the kit
  • Fuselage air scoops included with the kit
  • APU exhaust deflector and fuel vent included with the kit
  • Flair dispensers included with the kit
  • EGI/ GPS dome included with the kit
  • Formation lights included with the kit
  • Full folwer flap hinging system included with the kit
  • Cockpit detail kit now produced by PropagTeam as an option

 

Compared to Gen 4, the new version features the following improvements:

  • Building time divided by two/ three with the extra work package.
  • Plane fully electrically operated. No more pneumatic system on board.
  • More scale options, including a new ultra scale flight deck kit.
  • Easier and less time consuming operations at the field.
  • Less maintenance.
  • And finally a stronger structure.

 

For Gen 5, Bogo has CAD re-worked lots of carbon fiber bulkheads, ribs and spars to further reduce the weight of the structure, while improving its strength.  Additionally, the wings and fuselage feature new strategic reinforcements, making this plane suitable for more powerful engine options up to 160N of thrust. Yet when equipped with our super light Merlin VT-80 and no ordnance, this plane stays below the 20 kgs mark for world class scale competitions.

 

The full kevlar fiber fuselage includes in-mould installed carbon/Airex bulkheads and landing gear structure, making it one of most refined and achieved JWM class airplane available in the world as a kit. Stringers and carbon fiber have been added around the hatch.

 

The wings are similarly built from an Airex/galss fiber sandwich skin with carbon fiber/ airex, carbon fiber/ plywood ribs and specifically designed carbon fiber spar. This keeps the weight incredibly low while conserving the legendary strength of this model. Reinforcements have been added around the landing gear mounting bulges. The internal structure now looks very close to a certain Yak 130...

 

The flaps are now fully fowler articulated in a 100% scale motion.

The engine nacelles are designed to house an optional sliding engine cradle that renders installation very easy.

This system is optimally suited for the Merlin VT-80 or M-140 where minimal connections will be made upon sliding the engine assembly.

The engine options range from the Merlin VT-80 for an ultra light weight airplane to our B100F, Merlin M140XBL up to our fantastic Behotec JB-180 derated to 160N for stratospheric performance or when flying with the optional rotating fan.

 

 

The expertise of Mibo in composite design and production has achieved the world highest levels and is very close to the best Russian JWM focused productions is terms of weight to volume ratio as well as overall strength. The level of scale realism of the kit is simply outstanding.

 

There were two Mibo A-10 present at the 2013 JWM in the hands of Martin Sannwald from Switzerland and Eduard Morbitzer from Austria.

 

The best result of scale craftsmanship on a development version of our Gen. 4 kit was at TOP GUN 2008 for the team of Mike Selby & Ray Johns with:

  • Highest Static
  • Best Military
  • Best Jet
  • Best Cockpit Interior
  • Critics Choice
  • Team Scale 2nd
  • Best Jet Performance
