The most feared aircraft in the US Air Force, the A-10 Tankbuster was the first aircraft in US aviation history designed specifically for close air support. Its ability to support ground troops, to take out enemy positions and tanks and act as a spotter plane have made it one of the most successful jets of recent times.
From its first taste of battle in Desert Storm to the most recent assault on Baghdad, HEAVY METAL chronicles the combat history of the weapon that was once dubbed the ''ugly duckling'' for its ungainly design. Interviews with current pilots, many of whom flew in Operation Iraqi Freedom, reveal what it is like to command the battlefield from this awesome weapon and also detail the difficulties and dangers faced by the A-10 crews and their commanders on the ground.
