These armed Preditors are not giving the bad guys any sleep. The stress level has got to be high on the other side when 24/7 you’re aware that some eye in the sky is about to lay down the thunder.
Thank you, God.
Someone finally has put the Air Force in a position to fight offensively and not just transport, fly CAP, and look great on power point.
This is similar to the A-10 Warthog. The bastard children of the Air Force, but dang if you ever heard that "Brrrrrrrruuuppp"- and see earth, metal, wood, rubber, asphalt, sand, hair, teeth, all turned into a fine dust.... it's a sight. Soldiers.... real soldiers, use whatever is EFFECTIVE in a war.
The beauty of the Predator or UAV is the fact that you can't see it. So those of you that have had the pleasure of being sniped can attest to the vague weirdness that someone's reticle is on your face or neck.
Well the muzzies have to deal with the fact that wherever they are, in any vehicle, on any road and in any house..... they've got a video or a laser sweeping them.
Makes me actually kind of ....... froggy. I'd just love to find a little place, high up with satcom, some optics, night vision and a laser. ......
I swear, I wouldn't even take a rifle...if you give me one or two weeks just hanging out and hunting.
The only caveat would be, I got to have any Predator or UAV patrolling my boxes, to be on call 24/7.
I'm thinking there are thousands of kids playing XBOX 360 online that are training themselves to be the next flight officers for us.
Makes me warm and fuzzy.
here are some of the Air Forces "ready reservists" for the next Predator squadron.
