The Warthog

Dubbed Warthog, Hog or just Hawg, the A-10 Thunderbolt II is, basically, an airplane built around the GAU-8 Avenger 30-mm hydraulically driven seven-barrel Gatling-type cannon. 3900 rounds in 60 seconds. Kinda like the movie, if you the target you are gone in 60 seconds.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
