Avenger Wrath is the story of a Hog Driver and his ride during the War in Afghanistan, operating out of Bagram Airbase with the beautiful, if deadly Afghan Mountain range as a backdrop. The A-10 saw almost constant use in Afghanistan, proving itself yet again, as formidable and capable weapons platform. This revised and updated version of the book, has become more poignant as the F-35 has the chance to prove that it can take on the A-10s role. The A-10 is due to stay in service until at least 2022, with life extension, maybe until 2040. Fitted with the GAU-8 Avenger a 30mm cannon, designed to cut through tank armour was found to be just as good at tearing through the thick mud walls of compounds were the Taliban often took refuge in to mount ambushes on coalition troops. It has survivability like no other aircraft currently in operation and has brought its pilot back in a state that would have caused other aircraft to have crashed. Follow this high-octane story based on real operations and get an exciting insight into an amazing aircraft. Note: This title has become the victim of malicious reviews
