A-10 Warthog Saves Ambushed Soldiers And Blows Away Taliban Snipers

June 09, 2016

Watch the A-10 Warthog come to the aid of soldiers in need yet again. This real combat footage shows U.S. and Afghan forces pinned down by Taliban snipers. The U.S. and Afghan forces were searching local villages to find Taliban weapons and IED factories when the snipers attacked.


The U.S. soldiers engage in a firefight with the snipers. When they are unable to neutralize the target they decide to call in the big guns. Once the snipers are located and properly identified as a threat the A-10 Warthog is called in to neutralize the threat from above. The A-10 swoops in and drops a single bomb that turns the snipers into nothing but a massive mushroom cloud.
