    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    Great video Terry - but really I truly expect we should have chain driven 105's by now.

    I remember in Cambodia one night on a mountain top near where I was, the 130's up in the air firing mini-guns at that mountain top next door, the tracers hitting it. The night before they were dropping in mortars and artillery on us. We didn't have any further trouble out of that mountain

    It was a true light show, never forget it.

    We have the ordinance and should always use it

    AFSOC has some planes at Hurlburt, in Florida, that have shall we say, "exotic" weapons on board. You know that old Army saying - "When you want to kill everything, call in the artillery."
