This WWII style fighter is basically what the A-10 would have been if it had been designed in 1940. Built primarily for ground attack, while it is able to carry a large amount of bombs and rockets, it mainly attacks units with its wing integrated 47mm cannons, hence the name Shredder. The "A" is from the A-10 and the "47" is in reference to the P-47, the real life equivalent to the A-10 in WWII.
About this creation
         The A-47 was the Oceanic Republics most advanced ground attack plane before the jet age, powered by a 1700 HP radial engine, it had good performance for something that was essentially a flying tank. Armed with two 47mm cannons, the A-47 could destroy most tanks in only a couple hits. Its two 30 cal machine guns could be used for attacking light targets, but doubled as targeting guns, to line up shots against armored targets, before expending valuable cannon ammo.
         Air to air kills werenít unheard of among Shredder pilots, though still quite rare as the A-47s had only moderate speed and poor maneuverability. Still, so long as adequate top cover was provided, the A-47ís thick armor could hold long enough for friendly fighters to take out any pursuit.
         The landscape for the main picture was just a quick throw together (you may notice much of it isnít even attached to the studs), though longtime followers may notice the halftrack from the 15 piece vehicle challenge a few years back. The tank is new, and probably took me a few hours to make. I really had to stretch those tires to get them on, probably not so good for them long term, but I have a whole box of tires like that and never use any of them!

Wasnít sure what to do for a final picture, given the already epic main picture, so I decided to put it with my mini Modulex airplane which would have probably never gotten a page on its own. They were giving Modulex out at my local LEGO con a few years ago as part of a promotion, so this is actually all the pieces I own.

The plane's very well designed, and the ground vehicles quietly earn their keep too.
