DCS A-10C Teaser Trailer
Note: This game has been out for a while and there is a ton of great footage from gamers. This simulator makes me want to run out and build a PC just for gaming as well as grab a flight stick and some rudders!

The Daily goes inside Special Ops

The Daily has a four-part series that goes inside the U.S. Special Operations Community. Very cool stuff.

Just one video out of the series is this one on the A-10 Warthog. This is one mean aircraft.





Each part has a great piece of writing as well a video with tons of high-def footage.

Part One: The Sky’s No Limit [Air Force Pararescue Jumpers]

Part Two: Air Force’s Ugly Duckling [A-10 Warthog]

Part Three: Blades of Glory [HH-60 Pave Hawk]

Part Four: Behind the Scenes [Simulated Rescue Mission]
