GRAPHIC: Watch an A-10 Warthog Destroy Members of the Taliban

A-10 Warthog Destroys Taliban

These Taliban members didn’t stand a chance.

There are few things that make us feel more patriotic than big guns taking down bad guys. And, if there’s one thing that we can be sure of, it’s that the U.S. Military is damn good at doing just that. In this wild video, watch as an A-10 Warthog obliterates members of the Taliban.

The video opens with two members of a Taliban machine gun team. Quickly, though, a third member joins their group. That’s when all hell breaks loose and the A-10 Thunderbolt II sings them their final swan song.

The A-10 Thunderbolt II 30mm GAU-8/A Avenger is an autocannon-style weapon system. It’s one of the most capable cannons ever mounted to an aircraft. The gun can accurately place more than 60 rounds of 30 mm ammunition on target per second. This can all happen from nearly a mile in the air.

These guys didn’t stand a chance.
