We haven’t had too many user made campaigns for the Hog. So this is nice looking one (The Enemy Within) with plenty to challenge a Hog pilot.
This is a 7-mission, story driven campaign taking place in 2015 in Georgia. A squad of A10s is sent to Kobuleti by NATO in order to help the Georgian government tackle the rising terrorist threat...

This video shows some of the action. Note, the weather is pretty bad in this mission!
There has been a huge amount of discussion about the future role of the A10 in the US Air Force. Basically the USAF wants to retire the Hog and bring in the new, shiny and damn expensive F35.
Over on the Medium site, there are a large number of articles about this and other Hog related stories. So head along and start reading. Save the Hog!
With all the buttons and controls we have to use and remember, we always need a bit of help. The iControl DCS/DCS Virtual Cockpit has been out for awhile but is always being updated. You can get more details here.
There is also the iPad pit which I use and it’s pretty decent. Yes you have to spend some money but it’s not a lot for such great tools.
Ooh, very nice. This guy gets to fly with the USAF Thunderbird F16 demo team. Read about it here.
Well the new Saitek X55 Rhino certainly looks decent. But price is the key with this. See it here.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
