    This video was taken from inside the cockpit of an A-10 (Warthog) by the pilot. It was a night view. What you see is from 9700 feet away (almost two miles).



    Four terrorists are walking along a street with no clue that someone is watching them from almost 2 miles away. The A-10 fired a 30 mm cannon WITHOUT injuring the dog nearby who escaped unharmed. You can see the gun camera shake a bit as the pilot fires; then count about 4 seconds for the rounds to travel 2 miles. Every tenth round is a tracer, so the bullets you actually see are every tenth; they are getting hit with hundreds of rounds, but the tail wagging dog gets the heck out of Dodge! Muzzle velocity on the 30mm cannon is 2430 feet per second.



    The result is that four fewer guys won't be blowing up women and children anymore! GITMO won't have a prisoner problem and the terrorists get their 72 Virgins. Everyone is a winner! Damn, don't you love it when a plan comes together!

    Rate of fire is way too slow to be an A-10. That would be an Apache at that rate.

    Nice that the dog got away! Note to self, if my dog suddenly tucks his tail and runs for no apparent reason....RUN!!!

    Laugh wash rinse and repeat.

    That is a chain gun rate of fire not a vulcan cannon rate of fire.

    If you watch you can see the tracers enter from the upper left of the shot and lay waste to all but the dog. Then they light them up again just to add insult to death. WOOT WOOT.

    Makes me proud to be an american. We are not afraid to lay waste to enemy.

    A-10 attack footage is always remarkable. You see the rounds hit and then several seconds later you hear the "vrrrrrrrrrrrrrrm" of the GAU-8 ripping off.

    Just the speed of those 30mm rounds flashing through is wild, to say the least.
