I thought only the US had A-10s.. Do the brits use them too?
And it's not supposed to be a fast aircraft, and if you look at it you can see that it was never ment to be fast. It's designed for close air support so weapons and agility are more important than speed. And it's based on the avenger gatling gun which wouldn't be that great at extremely high speeds. (due to the fact that you have to aim) Would be pretty hard to hit a tank with the avenger if you were going mach 2+

No, we don't have them, it was combined forces base, originally RAF, then the USAF leased it, so there were British & American planes on the same base, oh & I've been interested in aircraft technology since I was like 11, so yes, I knew the speed had to be that low with that body shape, give me some credit, did you know it was named after the WW2 jet fighter, of the same name, the P47 Thunderbolt, the A10 is also known as the Warthog.
