All ofÂ you hog-handlers out there past and present are going to be very pleased by this. You can not argue with success — here you see everyone’s best buddy busting ass off the runway at Bagram to fellicitate the foolish. Everyone appreciates the fellicitations the A-10 can present, but none more thanÂ our forces whenÂ face-to-face with the Taliban.
You know you are doing good when even the “don’t let down the side” Brits admit it.
The Air Force has figured out that even after you establish overwhelming air-superiority in any conflict, you still need a follow-on punch capable of digging out the dregs, and the A-10’s just the right shovel to dig that grave for our foes. When it comes to close air support, nothing does it better.
Defense Industry Daily details the new program to modernizeÂ the best damnedÂ close air support weapons system in the world.Â If you love A-10’s then you will want to bookmark the pageÂ since they will update it frequentlyÂ as contracts are awarded and more news comes out.
All A-10’s are going to get run through the Precision Engagement modification program over the next 4-5 years which will upgrade every package they carry, which is just Oustanding! (My sister used to work at a computerized firing ranged they used for calibration … wonder if they are going to re-open that?)
So now to the rest of the reason I am writing this: I just love A-10’s and I wanted an excuse to post these beautimous pictures in my online journal. Above you see the White Lightning version…. andÂ if you’ve ever seen one fire at night you don’t need to ask why it’s called that.
