The US Air Force’s A-10 Thunderbolt II Demonstration Team unveiled a brand new specially painted A-10 today. The aircraft features a stunning green and tan Southeast Asia camouflage scheme with a white belly, colorful roundel, and white unit markings on the tail.

The design is reminiscent of the F-105 Thunderchiefs that the 355th Tactical Fighter Wing (predecessor to the current 355th Fighter Wing) flew during the Vietnam War. The starboard side of the nose features the names of unit members killed in action and taken as prisoners of war.

Here's a neat shot from @Boeing showing the relative footprint of the coaxial SB>1 Defiant and a Black Hawk helicopter. @Sikorsky and @BoeingDefense are developing the #DefiantX for the US Army's #FLRAA competition.
