I love the A-10 as the tank buster. Nothing says help is on the way like 7,000 rounds a minute with uranium tipped to give the inside of a tank a nice firestorm.
I have to say I almost like the SR-71 Blackbird more. No other jet has as great a missle defense like the Blackbird-just speed up. I still wish they kept it going for recon ( give it much needed modern avionics)
Just something about going 2,100+ mph. Now that's a quick way to put a smile on your face
