The US’ Special Operations Command recently posted a video on Twitter showing what it’s like to be on the “business end” of the A-10 Warthog’s Gatling gun.
We first saw the video at SOFREP. The 137th Special Operations Wing, which shot the footage, captured a rather unique perspective.
The special operations wing put a camera on a training ground before the A-10 performed a strafing run on it.
The A-10’s GAU-8/A Avenger rotary canon fires 3,900 armor-piercing depleted uranium and high explosive incendiary rounds per minute – and you can almost feel it in the video.
Now wait for the “buuuuurp”:
