    11, 13 or 18 series?

    Of course you are disagreeing with me b/c you don't like me.

    You can only use the AC-130 at night and with NO ADA threat whatsoever.

    The bad guys had already shot birds down that day, IIRC.

    Battle went through the night. The request was denied.



    I prefer an a-10 anyday. then again, I was a ROMAD...

    No, I'm disagreeing with you because I think you're wrong. I'm too discplined to let my personal feelings effect my opinions. But, then again, I don't even know you, so how can I dislike you?

    Sounds like it would have been perfect for Mogadishu. I don't think the enemy's RPG's could have touch a spectre, especially at night.

    No surprise...if they denied tanks, CAS wasn't happening.

    Mad respect, bro. I have had an incredible experience with every JTAC I have served with. Absolute professionals.

    FP is great, but I think CCA has better "eyes" close in.

    Again, just for my SA...11, 13 or 18 series?

    I was pretty rude to you the other day. You're human, you can't help it.

    Sounds like it would have been perfect for Mogadishu. I don't think the enemy's RPG's could have touch a spectre, especially at night.
    Remember that at the time, there is no way of knowing that it was only RPGs that took the birds down. Even so, I'm telling you that AC-130s HATE any ADA threat at all...even RPG and MG fire. Remember, they are flying in a circle pattern very very slowly. If they stay high, they are good.

    Bottom line is that Spectre firing in MOG would have been to much CD. We wouldn't get it today in the same situation.

    That's why the military needs to stop worrying about collateral damage and more about troop safety.
