The A-10 Warthog is an example of the strength of America’s military. The aircraft has been around since the 1970s and while some may think it’s old and outdated, recent video footage proves that it isn’t.
Some politicians want to get rid of the A-10 and replace it with a less reliable aircraft, but that might not be such a good idea, considering its incredible accuracy.
In a video uploaded to YouTube just a few days ago, the accuracy of the aircraft was put on full display.
A Taliban insurgent thought he was making a clean getaway after taking part in an attack on a U.S. base. Nothing could be further from the truth — he was blown to bits before he rounded the next corner. Take a look:
As long as there are people like the terrorist in this video, we need our military to be strong and capable. The A-10 Warthog provides foot soldiers the protection they need when they need it. It’s a classic example of American military power.
We love the swift justice it serves to those who want to destroy America’s freedom by killing our servicemen and women.
