CAMPIA-TURZII, Romania -- An 81st Fighter Ssquadron pilot prepares to shoot the A-10 Thunderbolt II's 30 mm seven-barrel Gatling gun during training at a range here Oct. 22. Precise weapons delivery is one of the 81st FS’ priorities while training here, as pilots are able to utilize many of the A-10s capabilities. “This deployment offers tremendous training opportunities for an A-10 squadron,” said Lt. Col. Ronald Stuewe, 81st FS commander. “We plan on maximizing the events that are difficult to obtain from home station – low altitude, chaff and flare employment, and basic weapons delivery.  The potential ability to utilize our Data-Link (a computer network for communication between aircraft) will be critical in the European Command Area of Responsibility and will truly allow the squadron to train like we fight.” (U.S. Air Force photo/2nd Lt.
