    I drove an M1A1 back in the day. I did the three country tour in Desert Storm. I scored high enough on my ASVAB to do almost anything but they showed me a tape of a tank going airborn and I was hooked. I loved the sight of the 120mm gun going off at night with the Ma Duece and 240s singing backup.

    Gotta love how well trained the military is that people here have gone and come back unharmed and unscaithed...well except Overalls who became a Texan fan :brow:
     
  4. Funny story. My father was in the army during the development of the M1A1 and he worked on it in a non-technical capacity. He had Secret clearance and wrote a paper about something. He went back a few hours after submitting it to rewrite part of it, but it had been bumped to Top Secret clearance. He wasn't even allowed to read the paper that he wrote himself just hours after handing it in...

    We wrote a new definition to "plow the road". Flew tons of CAS, and quite a few CSAR ops, mostly for the Brits in their Tornados, at night. The pucker factor was high.

    We may not be pretty, but if you were a trooper on the ground there was nothing in the air more beautiful than a Hog.

    Talking A-10 Warthog right?

    If so Awsome engineering. Basically a cannon with a plane wrapped around it. Composite engineering allows it to basically be shot out from under the pilot and still be flyable back to base.

    I love that gun ship the USAF used in Fallujah right after the bad guys bravely attacked US civilian contractors. That thing would just ruin your day if you happened to be at the working end of it - lol Computer controlled chaos.
