    You know, on an A-10 it just might work!

    Your basic "fire and forget" fire control system.

    Given that I was a grunt type, I do have some questions about the emergency jettison system, though.....

    I think we could spend a third of what we do on defense and get by just fine....

    Too bad we spend most of it defending everyone else.

    I have been hearing that the Army wants to take over full control of Close air support but this is getting a little out of hand. ;)

    Besides, who needs that when we got this:eek:

    OK, how many of you had "That might be fun" run through your mind?Come on, I know I'm not the only one. I'd have to have a parachute though.

    The cannon is for the tank, the Underwing Weapons System Officer is for the crew bailing out of said tank. :D

    Looks like fun to me!

    Never thought about that. They do seem to bail out just before they get blown up.

    Seen alot of IR video of the tank crews running like rabbits just before it blew.:D
