A-10 Unprecedented Access: The Daily Captures Fantastic Hog Footage
The Best Warthog Footage You’ll Ever See
To show off the amazing capabilities of the A-10 Thunderbolt II, the U.S. Air Force allowed The Daily crew accesses to footage never before seen. Putting cameras in the cockpit and on the ground, they captured some of the greatest footage of A-10s strafing ever recorded. In addition, this short clip is also very comprehensive and you’ll be able to pick up a fact or two you didn’t know.
“When you’re on the ground you get into a hostile firefight…those A-10s when you hear them coming in is the sweetest sound you can hear.”-U.S. Marine involved in firefight
Built solely for close air support, this platform excels beyond belief at what it was designed to do. For troops on the ground, its distinctive whine is the best thing to hear when stuck in a tight spot. With a GAU-8/A Avenger Gatling cannon literally wrapped around by the plane, this has been the favorite support aircraft since its inception.
