I know what I want for Christmas...
When I was at Ft. Leonard Wood for basic training, we would see and hear the A-10s doing gun runs on a near by gun range while we were at the rifle range.
Love that sound. 30mm at almost 4K rpm, gotta love it!
I don't care where you are at, what you are in, or what you are doing.... you do NOT want to be on the receiving end of that.
Especially shooting depleted uranium rounds. Zip right through an armored tank.
Dirrected fire for them once or twice. Even danger close, where you could feel the impact from the rounds coming through the ground.
