In an attempt to develop better camouflage for Desert Storm, the USAF tested two experimental paint schemes for the A-10 in 1991. One aircraft, nicknamed "Peanut", was painted in a three-tone brown scheme while another, "Flipper", was given a similar three-tone gray scheme. Ultimately, though, neither scheme was adopted for use in Desert Storm and these aircraft were eventually repainted in standard paint schemes.

Fairchild A-10C 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.
