military videos A-10 Warthog - The Fairchild-Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is a single-seat, twin-engine jet aircraft designed to provide close air support (CAS) of ground forces by attacking tanks, armored vehicles, and other ground targets. As a secondary mission, it provides airborne forward air control, guiding other attack aircraft against ground targets. It is the first US Air Force aircraft designed exclusively for close air support (CAS) of ground forces. The official nickname comes from the P-47 Thunderbolt of World War II, a plane that was particularly effective at the CAS mission. However, it is more commonly known as Warthog or simply Hog. In the USAF inventory, the same airframe is also designated OA-10 when used primarily in a forward air control role.

military videos Afghanistan, Oruzgan Province, Dey Chopan - Oruzgan (or Uruzgan) is one of the thirty-four provinces of Afghanistan. It is in the centre of the country, though the area is considered part of southern Afghanistan and it is culturally and tribally linked to Kandahar. Its capital is Tarin Kowt. On March 28, 2004, the new Daikondi province was carved out of an area in the north leaving Oruzgan with a majority Pashtun population and Daikondi with a majority of Hazaras. The map shows the new provincial boundaries. In May 2006, the district of Gizab was taken back from Daikondi and re-annexed to Oruzgan, becoming Oruzgan's sixth district.
