Development and Flight Test of a Two-Place Night/Adverse Weather A-10 for the Close-Air Support and Battlefield Attack Mission 791069

Recognizing a critical void in battlefield support tactical air capability in night and adverse weather, a Fairchild sponsored activity was undertaken to develop, build and critically evaluate a near term, cost-effective solution consisting of an enhancement of the highly effective A-10 system. The objective was to incorporate an effective integration of proven avionics with appropriate displays and presentations into a modified A-10, and to demonstrate night/adverse weather tactical effectiveness using this system to exploit the A-10's tactics and munitions.
The N/AW A-10 has been demonstrated to be a formidable and viable night-low level penetrator with outstanding lethality.
