The Air Force just released a bunch of crazy photos of A-10 Warthogs over Afghanistan
Since then, the US has released several videos of A-10s striking Taliban vehicles, as well as training and drug-producing facilities.
Some analysts, however, have criticized the new strategy as a game of whack-a-mole, since the Taliban can rebuild such drug-producing facilities in three or four days.The latest SIGAR report also noted that civilian casualties increased in November. "Press reports stated several civilians were killed during the November bombings," the report said.
The recently released A-10 photos though are pretty incredible, providing a close-up of how the Warthog is refueled in mid-air.Check them out:
The pictures, taken from a KC-135 Stratotanker, first show the A-10 maneuvering into position for refueling.
But surely ...
Once in position, the KC-135 extends the refueling boom down towards the Warthog.Advertisement
And refueling begins.
Once refueled, the A-10 inverts away and launches flares.Advertisement
And goes on its way.
After the refuel, the photographer got a close-up of the cockpit.Advertisement
