Awesome A-10 Warthog in Action / Practice Targeting Unmanned Moving Targets

A-10 Warthogs from the 124th Fighter Wing at Gowen Field and F-15E Strike Eagles from the 366th Fighter Wing at Mountain Home Air Force Base practice targeting unmanned moving targets at the Saylor Creek Training Range.

Dedicated teams at the Saylor Creek Training Range help aircrew to train on moving targets by operating remote control vehicles from a distance. These vehicles range anywhere from full-size humvees to motorcycles which help aircrew to adapt to different challenges they may face in real world scenarios.

  1. So, what we can see is that the A-10 has purrfect accuracy against stationary targets, but only so-so accuracy against slowly moving ones. One can wonder what good they would have done against 20k charging Soviet tanks in West Germany.

  2. A-10s are damn near indestructible, too. Pilot said a Warthog can remain perfectly airworthy even after sustaining damage that would make other planes cry home to mama. “On a run over Afghanistan, a Taliban (only he didn’t say Taliban) got a lucky hit on me that punched a hole in my right wing, knocking out flaps and blowing my hydraulics cover. Normally this would doom most aircraft. But my A-10C kept flying. In fact, the hit seemed to succeed only in making my bird *mad*, and we soon dispensed multiple 30mm rounds of freedom at 65bps into a Taliban compound at zero-D. A lot of Taliban met a lot of virgins that day, I guarantee it. Meanwhile, the crew repaired my damaged Warthog and it was back in service only a few days later.”
