The Hog






For your viewing pleasure.


U.S. Army soldiers from 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, call in a A-10 Warthog to engage an enemy position in the Korengal Valley of Afghanistan.

  1. And if the higher-ups get their way, the A-10 will be replaced by the expensive and nearly useless F-35.

  3. Another wonderful aircraft that I'll likely never get a chance to fly. Sigh. So few aircraft do what aircraft are really made for--pounding the snot out of people and things on the ground. The A-10 excels at this.

    1. They are like the B-52, they won't be out of date for 50 years. However the USAF doesn't get it.
