(IraqiNews.com) On Thursday, a local source in Nineveh province said, that the ‘Wild Boar’ aircraft which belongs to the U.S. Air Force has carried out four air strikes that killed and wounded dozens of ISIS elements, adding that the aircraft sparked panic in the ranks of ISIS.

The source said in an interview for IraqiNews.com, “The U.S. aircraft A-10 Warthog (Wild Boar) carried out, at dawn today, four air strikes on gatherings of ISIS elements in the village of Sultan Abdullah in Makhmour district, southeast Mosul,” adding that, “The raids resulted in the death and injury of dozens of ISIS elements.”

The source, who requested anonymity, added, “The aircraft sparked panic in the ranks of ISIS after bombing its elements and flying in spaces close to the ground,” adding that, “Elements of the terrorist organization targeted the aircraft with 4 Strela missiles and but that did not cause it any damage, prompting the remaining elements of the organization to leave the bodies of their dead and carry the wounded to escape towards the Shirqat district (120 km north of Tikrit).”

The warthog is an absolute monster. A tank with wings and laden with munitions.

 

Yes it is... I love that hog. People do not really understand the awesomeness of this aircraft until they see it in at least a live fire exercise.

As an Abrams M-1 Tanker in West Germany, we did several Combined Arms Tactics exercises for top level politicians, Defense, Pentagon and NATO high up muckity mucks to show how Artillery, Abrams, Bradleys,' Apaches & A-10 Wart Hogs could effectively wipe out and entire GRID SQUARE [ 4,000 sq. meters ]. It was just plain awesome.
