Did a minor re-do of an older profile tonight - the Consolidated LB-26. This was  a lightweight outgrowth of the company’s (equally unbuilt) LB-24 medium bomber design, and might have been put forward to meet the same requirement that spawned the B-25 Mitchell and B-26 Marauder.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Curs Fury on serious steroids!  :icon_surprised: Very cool!  :smiley:

Edig Edit: Fury. Wanted to type Fury. Don't know what a "Curs" is. Damn fat fingers.

Edit #2: Had also meant to type Edit instead of Edig. Damn.....  :icon_twisted:

Not sure they put enough ordnance on there. Maybe a couple of Sidewinder rails on the fuselage, Corsair-/Crusader-style?

I remember seeing, waay early on in the program, and artist's depiction of the A-10 in a Southeast Asia type scheme. Here's my interpretation of what a slightly earlier Warthog might have looked like:
