This One Video Shows Why The A-10 Is Loved By US Troops - And Totally Feared By The Enemy
First introduced in 1977, the plane was designed for close air support and is extremely tough - able to withstand small arms fire from the ground while supporting the infantry with its Maverick missiles and massive 30mm Gatling gun .
"There's something about 30 mm [high-explosive rounds] being fired at over 4000 rounds per minute that makes me happy," one Marine combat veteran told Business Insider last year.
Troops love it and the enemy fears it - and after you hear its terrifying and distinctive sound in the video, you'll understand why.
