The A-10A -Distant Thunder- 2 Star Aircraft (also stylized as A-10A -DISTANT THUNDER-) is a special variant of the A-10A Thunderbolt II. It is available for $2.49 as Downloadable Content in Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation, and was available as a Limited-Time Drop in late February 2015 in Ace Combat Infinity.

The paint scheme featured on the DistantThunder A-10 is based on the ace pilot of the same name from Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War. They piloted a YA-10B during the mission Heartbreak One, and, upon shooting them down, their paint scheme was available as the YA-10B's SP color. The ace's callsign, and, in turn, the special aircraft's name, is a reference to Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies's alternate name in Europe: Ace Combat: Distant Thunder.
