Of course not Luis - you will still be walking home, after losing your squabble with 'squaddie' with a manpad.
Alan, at least I had some fun making those SA6 firing against and evade .. seem I was one of the few. My mistake was not know there was 2 and not only 1 long range missile, I had 6 or 7 against me and Geoff some more, I thought the kubs were empty ... my mistake off course ...
Now, lets be fair, A10 hasn't SEAD capability, in a coordinated op what were we doing against SAMs that can fire above our weapons range and at stratosferic altitudes?
Well, I know hog is a great aircraft and hog pilots are great ... but this was a impossible task.
I thought fly under 250 ft and strafe them ... but ... manpads ...
