Hogs Return to Afghanistan

The Air Force has sent A-10 Warthogs back to Afghanistan to augment the F-15Es now serving there as NATO and the coalition ramp up efforts to combat an increasingly strong Taliban revival. The A-10s and their air and ground crews deployed from the 354th Fighter Squadron at Davis-Monthan AFB, Ariz., and, according to a release from the Combined Joint Task Force-82 at Bagram AB, Afghanistan, it’s the second deployment for the squadron since 2006.
