    I guess watching Fury got me thinking about all the different modern land combat vehicles people spend the better part of a year in. Are some better than others? AA? Light Armor? MBT? Who was comfortable in their station?

    And they don't get hit by enemy fire nearly as much.

    And they're just so much more cool. :)

    AC-130s take fire?? Don't they only fly low-medium risk night ops?

    Pretty much. They go up when everyone else has been put down.

    An old fashioned jeep w/mg mounted--or maybe even an old ONTUS. Neither were "bullet proof" but were nimble and could go anywhere.

    UH-1 Iroquois. My father was a gunner in 2 tours Vietnam and the crew chief on Huey's in the 80s before the army went to Blackhawks. He use to tell me about the ghosts on his copter when I was a kid. How he could hear and feel it when something was wrong and call for the pilot to put it down. He use to have the pilot fly over the house and hover so he could wave. You can't do that kinda stuff anymore. I've been around helicopters enough that I can tell you what it is before I can see it. I'm right 90% of the time. ! ImageUploadedByFirearms Talk1423578433.346284.jpg

    A10 thunderbolt. Most survivable military vehicle. Comes with its own whoopass manufacturing plant.

    Some would argue that some of the rest is as good or better. :) Pretty safe in a main battle tank unless an attack helicopter is gunning for you.
