The Air Support that Brings Hell to the Enemy

When you hear the sound of papper tearing from above, it means trouble. For the only rasping that comes from above, is from the Vulcan Cannon that is carried by the A10 Thunderbolt II "Warthog" Aircraft. It is an Air Support Unit that aids ground forces in taking out strong armor and infantry resistance. It can carry AGM-65 Maverick air-to-surface missiles, Mark 84 general-purpose bombs and its 30 mm (1.18 in) GAU-8/A Avenger gatling gun can unleash hell to ground forces.

Although it has a travelling speed of only 832 km/h and a combat radius of about 250 nautical miles, it brings more meaning to the word "Death from above" in modern warfare than ever before.

The Fire of the Sky. A10

My A10 isnt really well painted at all because it was done during my early secondary school times in which m standard isnt as good compared to now. In any case, i wanted to photograph it in a good angle with a great visual perspective to it and digitally alter it such that the colour looks as good as possible even with the apprentice-like standard of painting.

Onto other note, I have already experimented on the Callof Duty 4 Multiplayer. DAMN MAN, it is so great! Very Fast upload time for a high graphic game with little lag (Compared to BF2). Although there is no interactivity with aircraft, vehicles and boats (unlike BF2), it makes up more than ever, on graphics, gameplay and variety of weapons and scenarios. The maps are not as big as BF2 maps but i can say its Multiplayer adds even more value to the Call of Duty 4 game.

The Ranking system on the other hand, is a bit too easy to progress on. My friend, Qap, is already a Captain after playing not so long. Unlike BF2 where the ranking system requires u to WORK REAL HARD for it. And even then, u gotta have great skill to achieve certain ranks.

But overall, a satisfied modern combat game. 3x Hurrays for it. Go grab one NOW!

Another sidenote is that I have completed one conversion of my M1A1 to M1A2 and it looks great. Will be showing it soon.

Till the next photo feature and more...
See ya ;)
