In June 1982 the 926th TFG converted to the A-10 Thunderbolt II. In 1990 and 1991 they participated in Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm. In 1992 the group was re-designated the 926th FG and converted to F-16’s only to re-designated 926th FW in October 1994. In 1995 the 926th FW began conversion to the A/OA-10 Thunderbolt II which was completed in September 1997. After September 11, 2001 the 926th deployed to Bagram Airbase, Afghanistan, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in early 2002.

Fairchild A-10A Thunderbolt II

Designed to counter criticism that the US Air Force wasn't serious enough about close air support, the A-10 Thunderbolt II was first flown on May 10, 1972. The Thunderbolt II is a single-seat attack aircraft used to protect ground forces from tanks, armored vehicles and other ground targets. Nicknamed "Warthog," the A-10 is highly maneuverable at low speeds and low altitude and is capable of short take-offs and landings. It is designed for easy maintenance—many of its parts are interchangeable between the right and left side and it can operate from bases with limited facilities. The A-10 is expected to remain in service until 2028 or beyond.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale A-10 Thunderbolt II has crisp panel lines and a high-quality finish. The hinged canopy opens to expose beautifully recreated front and side instrument panels, control stick and seat. Other fine details include a slightly offset 30 mm gatling-gun barrel with cooling vents, a Pave Penny pod below the cockpit, several ventral mounted antenna and prominent high fuselage-mounted engine nacelles that provide an unobstructed view of the turbo fan's blades. The solid metal wing features cambered control surfaces and main gear nacelles, and a complete set of removable under-wing mounted ordnance has been included for multiple configuration options.
