Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  2. Without being picky when did Marine Air Wings start flying A10s.
    Good story though

    marines have had warthogs for ages along with lots more decent airframes.

    they also have harriers which might have more to do with it as they realise we have no ground attack planes left.

    Except for the Typhoon (not in Afghan) and Tornado GR4

    had this discussion, dropping a bomb is attacking the ground not ground attack regardless of how many shiney lights and cameras it has..

    gr4 proved its uselessness over there to excess and typhoon probably doesnt have the right package or wont have been desertised.

    That'll surprise the Saudi's they've bought a bunch of standard build Tranche 2s.
     
  8. They don't, its just a dogshit caption.
     
  9. A-10's are all USAF, ANG, AFRC.


    USMC have never flown the A-10, but they used to fly the OV-10 and that is a completely different beast

  10. How?
     
  11. you mean like that time the RAF bombed an entire British battalion at El Alamein or in Burma?
    Or all those poor Polacks who got carpet bombed at Caen?
     
  12. What relevence does that have to the quote you replied to?
     
  13. Its a GR 4 the clue is in name. As opposed to the (now redudant) F3 version. Same question as jimmys best mate, How has the GR4 proved its uselessness? Or, are you just gobbing off about stuff you have no knowledge of. The latter I bet

    I don't know why people slag off the GR4, it is and has been an outstanding success that has been delivering the goods continuously for a very long time
     
  15. Good to see there's at least one Brit with a bit of class. :)
