Let me guess: You ordered Hoskins to deploy the rocket launcher on the wing.

You haven't seen a battery of 105s, have you?

A recently declassified photo shows why the DoD has indefinitely postponed the OA-X program.

Back to the drawing board for the M7 Aerospace's proposed A-10D after blowback from the uprated cannon causes 'minor airframe integrity issues' during ground testing.

The finer nuances in the English notes of the Chief Engineer were lost to the design team:
We will pull the JATO rockets forward and put the flamethrower on the back burner.
