Weapons ready!

Stand-alone news photo released by 455th Air Expeditionary Wing Public Affairs:

Providing weapons for the fight, Staff Sgt. Todd Wolf, a Saint Joseph, Mo. native now deployed from Charleston Air Force Base's 437th Maintenance Squadron in South Carolina, works with Airman 1st Class Michael Chiniquy deployed from the 23rd Maintenance Group at Moody AFB, Georgia, to deliver weapons to their awaiting A-10 Thunderbolt II, also known as the Warthog. The A-10 is well-liked by ground commanders in combat due to its high payload, ability to stay on station over targets and the GAU-8 high explosive dispensing cannon in the nose of the aircraft. The A-10 plays a pivotal role in Afghanistan's Operation Enduring Freedom. (U.S. Air Force photo by Capt. David Faggard)
