Imagine the bad guys laughing at the fart sound...Then the rounds hit.
Not if they weren't the first target. It does seem to be just flying along farting
The A-10 was developed strictly as a ground support aircraft during the cold war. Its sole purpose was to kill as many Soviet tanks as it could which would have poured through the Fulda Gap by the thousands during the opening days of a US/NATO vs USSR/Warsaw Pact world war.almostapathetic wrote: ↑Sat Feb 10, 2018 8:22 pmExactly.
It looks like such slug of an aircraft. It is nice to see the military not overthinking it. The plane is just good enough, no need for stealth or speed. Instead put money in the guns... I bet it probably has backup to protect it when it does it's job.
Oh, and this...
Now I'm sad thinking how they missed out on that experience. Terrorists seem to have so little joy in their lives it seems a shame to deny them even the small satisfaction of knowing the weapon shredding their bodies makes a funny sound.
