The A-10 Warthog Is A Gun With Wings — AWESOME video

This A-10 Warthog is a gun with wings. Officially called the “Thunderbolt II,” and its primary weapon system, the GAU-8 Avenger.

The amazing firepower of the 30mm machine gun shooting 50-70 rounds per second is enough to disable or destroy most ground targets, which is part of why the A-10 is so popular for close air support.

(Video repeats: first half with titles, second half without. I watched both halves!)
