Real A-10 action from Afghanistan

An interesting summary of what the Hog has been getting up to in Afghanistan can be found over at Warthog News. ‘A show of force’ seems to be quite common. Basically this is an A-10 dropping flares to scare off the enemy which is a cheap, easy and relatively safe way to do CAS!  Of course they do drop GBUs and fire off some bullets too.
