Well, did he shit himself or what?

I think an A-10 wouldn't even have to hit me to kill me; I'd be scared to death to hear that gun blaring down at me.
Millard
Even off in the distance it sounds like some horrible nightmare creature.

mouser
Yeah. I can't understand why they're getting rid of the A-10. It doesn't have a real substitute. Fuck them drones can't do what these babies can.

Syd Midnight
No high tech security system can ever replace a bouncer, I suppose. A jet-powered bouncer maybe, which is what an A-10 is.

dichoticwarior
good 'ole american battlefield intel.
MK_Ultra
How do you know they hadn't advanced too far?

RandomFerret
It's a pretty fair assumption. Read your newspaper.

zatojones
Yes because only the American military can make a mistake

Calling former Iraqi soldiers turned religious fascists "goatherders":
Racism dressed in the dandy blouse of peace.

TeenerTot
Holy hell.
Roachbud
One of those took off while my plane was waiting to in Boise and the pilot said: "That's the sound of Freedom!"

Killing goatherders halfway across the globe really keeps our freedoms secure. Instead we have a president who wants to restrict our freedom of speech, security from habeus corpeus, and such.

Go freedom. Woo.

glasseye
Also: Holy shit the A10 is a beast.

Camonk
What the hell is your problem, glasseye? Why don't you just go join your pussy liberal terrorist friends in Iraq/France and hug some trees you fag.

RandomFerret
We need to get amrican troops out opf foriegn soil and restore the gold stnadard RON PAUL 2008!

This is why I don't participate in the act of nerding out about phasers, lightsabers and other fictional weapons; because real ones will always be far more horrifying.

That is such a mean gun. I'd never heard audio of the rounds impacting before.
halon
That was genuinely scary
Scrotum H. Vainglorious
Jesus, I love that sound of that gun going off.
Syd Midnight
It threw me how the roar of the gun came well after the impact of the rounds, because for a moment I forgot that this wasn't a movie. Holy shit that's scary.
Syd Midnight
I just realized, you can hear the sonic boom of the rounds as the first ones are hitting. CRAK!

Thatcher Pennywhistle
They really wanted to know if the guy shit himself.



I would have.

A-10 Warthogs are intimately familiar if you grew up in Tucson AZ near Davis Monthan AFB. They may be ugly, but the design is great because the pilot basically is just riding this massive gun, and just points the plane where he wants to rain death and destruction.
dr_rock
Jesus H Christ that is terrifying. I had heard the gun firing before (bbbbbrrrr) but never the impact. How fucking violent was that!!?

According to Wiki, they plan to keep them in service until at least 2028. America! (Fuck yeah!)
Aoi
It's the motherfucking Cloverfield. Jesus Christ.
Ursa_minor
The sound of that gun firing in the distance is terrifying on the most primal level.
Syd Midnight
What's even proper onomatopoeia for that? "BZZZZRRRRRRRRT"?

ztc
"MOOOOOOO!"

StanleyPain wins the comments, with Syd's "Jet-powered bouncer" coming in a close second.

And holy fucking shit, the phrase "Yeah, we're cool" is our greatest cultural export to the U.K.

Also, I love how they say "shIT!" with the octave-switchup. And of course, every team has to have that Pvt. Hudson guy in the background who screams "WE'RE FUCKED, WE'RE FUCKED, WE'RE SO FUCKED!!

retrocious
I have to hand it to them, their definition of "we're cool" is a little broader than mine.

Due to a misspelled clause in the Treaty of Paris, some parts of the United States Army are actually still at war with the Kingdom of Great Britain. Its really embarrassing so they try and keep it hush hush, but it flares up like this every now and again.
SixDigitDebt
I've seen those doing strafing practice in Ft. Grayling. The effect is intimidating, but it does sound like a giant fart in the sky.
