A-10 runs in Afghanistan danger close to US troops

Twice the plane gives an altitude deviation warning. The fact is, the A-10 was not able to achieve the kind of precision needed here and a helicopter would have been the better call. Have to admire the pilots for handling this kind of situation, one can feel the pressure from just watching the video. And also wonder at the motivation of the tribal fighters who are going up against A-10s, 130 specters, and drones. These are the children of the people who went up against the USSR.
