Operational Overview
The focus will be aircraft specifically tasked with the Close Air Support (CAS) mission. If Wiki can be trusted, the concept goes all the way back to 1917, so thereís over 100 years of airframes to choose from. Leaving out Bombers and straight fighters (see Caveat list below), there are plenty of choices.

Candidates (mostly pulled from Wiki), by no means complete, feel free to nominate you own favorites.
