Players step into the cockpit of the A-10 Thunderbolt II, also known as the "Warthog," to carry out a series of missions that simulate real-world combat scenarios. The game's missions revolve around various objectives, such as destroying enemy tanks, protecting friendly units, and engaging in air-to-ground and air-to-air combat. These missions are set in different environments, including European and Middle Eastern landscapes, reflecting the geopolitical tensions of the late 20th century.

The game offers a realistic portrayal of the aircraft's capabilities, including its durability, maneuverability, and powerful GAU-8 Avenger cannon, which is particularly effective against armored vehicles. The flight model in the game emphasizes realism, requiring players to manage aspects like speed, altitude, and weapon systems effectively.

The game features a variety of enemy targets, including tanks, anti-aircraft guns, and enemy aircraft, challenging players to utilize different strategies and weapons to successfully complete their missions. The inclusion of both air-to-ground and air-to-air combat adds to the game's complexity and realism.

Graphically, A-10 Tank Killer was notable for its time, featuring detailed aircraft models, terrain, and explosion effects. The game's graphics contribute to an immersive experience, allowing players to feel the intensity and danger of combat flight operations.

A-10 Tank Killer includes a campaign mode that strings together multiple missions with an overarching narrative, adding a sense of progression and depth to the gameplay. Players must carefully manage resources and plan their approach to each mission, considering factors like fuel, ammunition, and enemy defenses.

Its accurate portrayal of the A-10 aircraft and its immersive approach to simulation have earned it a respected place in the history of computer gaming, particularly among fans of military and flight simulation games.
