Islamic State group terrorists just got a bit of bad news that had the rest of the world cheering.
A dozen A-10 Thunderbold II attack planes have been positioned in the Incirlik Air Base in Turkey to conduct strikes against Islamic State group targets in Syria and Iraq, according to Stars and Stripes.
Video footage captured just how powerful these planes and the Avenger cannons they come equipped with are, and they’re nothing to laugh about — in fact, it’s something to fear.
Unless, apparently, you’re a radical Islamic terrorist. Sometimes it appears as if they’re not playing with a full deck.
In the video, a Taliban jihadist on a motorcycle was caught planting improvised explosive devices in an unidentified area, but before he completed his mission, he got smoked by a the A-10.
Take a look at the monumental explosion below:
The ground attack aircraft, which have been used by the military since the 1970s, are known for their ability to quickly and accurately annihilate enemy ground positions — and the video demonstrated their superior accuracy.
Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook announced the deployment of the bombers Tuesday at a news conference, and we couldn’t be happier.
It’s nice to see the strength of the U.S. military being used for what it was intended for — fighting and defending American interests.
