    both are badass, but the 30mm cannon gives me that warm fuzzy feeling and a sight bit of drool:D

    Warthog by far. Something has always struck me about their old school look, and of course the Teeth on the front near the 30 mm just means serious business

    tough call... A10 has a massive gun... but the F-111 is nuclear-capable. Hmmmm...

    The 30 mm Gatlin is my fave, so my vote has to go A-10... Ever seen the ones that have come back shot to h*ll? I dig the Titanium tub gig...

    A-10's are also nuke-capable! You ever see the A.F.'s plane-launched cruise missile?!! It's smaller than the Navy's air-launched one. The cross-section is kind of triangular.

    while I'm sure its possible to hang a nuke off practically anything... IIRC nukes were a real facet of the F111s cold war mission. Not really the A-10 fortay, I mean, its out there to kill tanks.. if you are going to just nuke them, a real bomber or cruise missile or pershing missile or something would prolly be a better choice. :)

    As for backing me up, I'll take the 'Hog any day of the week.

    But, when the **** hits the fan and you absolutely, positively have to kill every mother****er on the face of the planet, accept no substitutes.

    The last thing an enemy ground troop wants to hear is the whine of those A10 engines, well...except for maybe the BBBBBBBBBRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAPPPPPPPPPP! of that 30mm chain gun!

    The hanger I work in at HAFB has a few of your BC A10 in it, they are being "reworked" with all the latest and greatest!

    I get to walk by them all night long, but I work the F-16's:bow:
