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 - 2008-01-04
Even off in the distance it sounds like some horrible nightmare creature.

mouser - 2008-01-04
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 - 2008-01-05
No high tech security system can ever replace a bouncer, I suppose. A jet-powered bouncer maybe, which is what an A-10 is.

good 'ole american battlefield intel.

How do you know they hadn't advanced too far?

RandomFerret - 2008-01-04
It's a pretty fair assumption. Read your newspaper.

zatojones - 2008-01-05
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 - 2008-01-04
Holy hell.

One of those took off while my plane was waiting to in Boise and the pilot said: "That's the sound of Freedom!"
glasseye - 2008-01-04
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 - 2008-01-04
Also: Holy shit the A10 is a beast.

Camonk - 2008-01-04
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 - 2008-01-04

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.
balistic - 2008-01-04
That is such a mean gun. I'd never heard audio of the rounds impacting before.
halon - 2008-01-04
That was genuinely scary
Scrotum H. Vainglorious - 2008-01-04
Jesus, I love that sound of that gun going off.
Syd Midnight - 2008-01-04
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 - 2008-01-05
I just realized, you can hear the sonic boom of the rounds as the first ones are hitting. CRAK!

Thatcher Pennywhistle - 2008-01-04
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 - 2008-01-05
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 - 2008-01-05
It's the motherfucking Cloverfield. Jesus Christ.
Ursa_minor - 2008-01-05
The sound of that gun firing in the distance is terrifying on the most primal level.
Syd Midnight - 2008-01-05
What's even proper onomatopoeia for that? "BZZZZRRRRRRRRT"?

ztc - 2008-01-05
"MOOOOOOO!"

Ursa_minor - 2008-01-05

That gun sounds like the end of the fucking world.
FABIO2 - 2008-01-25
Eh, it's just some dust blowing around from a run that the camera mi-OHGOODGODHOLYSHIT!

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.
j lzrd / swift idiot - 2008-04-21
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 - 2008-04-22
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 - 2009-07-26
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.
