Fear the 'Hog'
Members of the 455th Expeditionary Aircraft Maintenance Squadron load foot-long 30 mm ammunition on an A-10 Thunderbolt II before a combat mission. The "hog"s' GAU-8/A seven-barrel Gatling gun is the business end of the Air Force's premier ground-attack fighter, which has been in the Air Force inventory since October 1975.
