LAST EDITED ON Mar-28-03 AT 01:09PM (EST)[p]A hunting day in the A-10! Perfect weather for a strike against an enemy armoured column. Sorry for no cockpit shots, I haven't downloaded a suitable cockpit for this great bird yet. However, please enjoy what I have here :-)

Lined up on the runway, fully loaded and ready!

Enroute to target. You can see my wingman there...

"1, in hot!" Breaking up for attack run... Showtime!

Time to use the standoff weapons first: switched to AGM-65 Maverick, target acquired ... fire!

A direct hit! Note the smoke trace of the missile and the AAA firing on my aircraft as I break away

Oh, oh, SAM launch!!!! An infrared SAM is got me on its sensors! Break hard left and drop flares...! That was close!

Ok, time for unloading those CBUs, bombs away!

The cluster submunitions got them all!

Now I'll use the weapon the A-10 is famous for: the 30mm GAU-8/A Gatling gun! Heading for target, perhaps a T-72?

That guy never knew what hit him! He's gone with a single pull of the trigger...

OK, time to return home... On final and ready to land!

On the runway, slightly off centre, sorry :-) Anyway, a good mission though I took a few hits but I got me several tanks for my record!

Worked a lot of hours Christian, I have some other posts almost ready for this weekend, but Peru is one of my very favourite areas to fly!

Actually this flight took place in Korea, not sure if it was North or South. Falcon 4 SP3 strikes again :-D

Yes, it's North Korea, as Falcon 4.0's action takes place there in a FICTITIOUS conflict, OK? That was just for the record :-lol Falcon 4.0 is the best!

Cheers!
