Police To Get A-10S ‘Tank Killers’ For Riot Control as Part Of Surplus Program AmmoLand Gun News

Manasquan, NJ --( The US Air Force will be retiring the A10 thunderbolt soon. The plane with the nicknames of “Warthog” and “Tank Killer” was designed for close air ground support missions.

A mission that could be adopted for police use.

General George Hammond says the A10s we will be retrofitted for civilian police use.

“We have done a few studies and found these planes will improve American police forces much as helicopters have.”

The planes would be given to police as part of the 1033 program. Much like how MRAP vehicles are being given to police SWAT teams.

A retrofit would include removing the Gatling Gun or rotary cannon, from the nose of the airplane. That weapon would be replaced by a 40mm less lethal launcher.

No police sources will go on record admitting it but there is rumor of new tear gas “bombs” being developed for police use. Using old Mark 81 bomb designs manufactures are looking to create a larger anti riot gas payload delivery system for law enforcement. The theory being that a laser guided bomb could put the gas into the pinpoint center of any civil disturbance.

Police Lt. Cameron Mitchell says “Look we are the police. We don’t need a weapon of war. But this plane can be a tool to keep the public safe. With that 40mm launcher we can drop grenades filled with tear gas or pepper spray deep into riots to disperse them with out marching cops into the fight.We can also use less lethal ferret rounds to end high speed chases on the interstate. A close support jet can work better than some helicopters can in missions like these.”

Lt. Mitchell could not go on record to talk about bombs. Off the record he did say how a laser guided weapon would do a better job to end a police chase than firing off rounds from nose cannon.

There is no official word on when the first A10 will be in the air flown by a police officer over U.S. homes and buisnesses.

      I think this militarization of the police has already gone way too far….

        :idea: :arrow: :arrow: Regardless if this is real or fake – DO YOU Know what to physically do once Martial Law starts? THIS WILL SAVE YOUR FAMILIES VERY LIFE! This is the time for its citizens to regain full control of our gov, and this gives tactics how to stop your Fed and State gov from their illegal laws over you. If you refuse to do anything, you are telling them that their laws are great, and that you are willing to have your children live under them. But ifyou love freedom, your Ground Zero is your very own smalltown USA. You need to kick your local police from their department because they are the Fed’s and State’s #1 law enforcers, whos one and only job is to contain you with weapons pointed to your head. But if you stop them, you wil be free from the illegal laws, and your community will be free for its citizens to run it. Read what to do in your very own city for freedoms sake.

      I suppose the next step will be using drones for “riot control”?

      Folks … this is fiction. Satire. General George Hammond and Lt. Cameron Mitchell are fictional characters from Stargate.

      Please try not to be too gullible.

        You could be onto something. There is no way this plane is being handed over to local police.

        The PD have been provided just enough equipment to barely make it out alive once SHTF.

        The planes are being moved out of the way per Obama and Chucky Hagels military purge.

        Keep in mind, it’s a fire sale and everything must go.

        The A10 is most likely going to the grave yard. Trust me police are way to stupid to operate a warthog.

      Man do we have some dumb people running the military.

      Just taking orders sir. YES men. nothing more, nothing less.

      Things are getting out of control, however who didn’t see this coming.

      At this point it’s a matter of time before the internet kill switch is pressed.

      Yep, ammo ban, warthogs it all is beginning to make perfect sense.

      I was wondering what they will be using in conjunction with China / Russia to take out American civilian resistance.
