I guess it just depends on how badly you want to bite a porcupine in the ass...

Well, good luck against a properly configured battle group with fleet denfense fighters.

It would be quite obvious that an A10c isn't going to run solo against an entire battle group with fighter support.

The idea of the thread is if you want to kill a ship with an A10c how do you do it? Why? Because of the 104th even that is going on this weekend. They want a few A10c pilots in it. They said the targets would be ships. Though I don't see the point in being an A10c pilot on a several hour mission for antiship detail.

I've been ground pounding in this thing a long time and taught many others how to. Research didn't find me any answers. So that is the reason for the thread. You can kill it. It is possible without risk to an A10c in perfect conditions if you know what you are doing.

Looks like you have everything under control, but:

The Molniya fires the SA-14 Gremlin (Strela-3)

The Grisha fires the SA-8 Gecko (Osa)

The Neustrashimy fires the SA-15 Gauntlet (Kynshal)

Anything bigger and you're starting to ask for trouble in a Hog but the smaller missile boats and patrol ships are totally fair game! You can sink them with a big pile of Mk82/GBU-12/38s or AGM-65D/Hs (targeting notwithstanding) but as you've noted the larger warheads are much more effective. You'll find guns/rockets to be pretty much totally ineffective.

How'd you calculate the aim offset?

I mean, if the ships were stationary, it doesn't make much sense to me to consider how to do it. Put the thing on the thing and mash that button, who cares whether the target floats on water or sits on the ground?

But if they were *not* stationary, the big question is how to aim the big bombs.

Basically the dry and bulk ones are easy prey for the GAU8 the tanker does needs like half ammo so not really reasonable. tanker takes 2x agm64h. The H seems to deal more damage then the d against it.

Apart from that double 500pound or single 1000pound ordanance will take out the tanker, while the bulk and dry cargo ship only need one 500pound class weapon.

Plan I have so far is basically run recon with le viggens, get rbs15s to blow up what is presenting a threat to the su25s and a10s and then have them roll in with their superior load carrying capacity.

LASTE takes care of the wind issue. I'm not sure if the ship was moving. If it was it wasn't going very fast. It started to move once it was on fire though.

Non moving targets are easy. Moving targets well you are told how many seconds it will take to hit the target. So you could guess and drop ahead of it. That is how I've hit moving convoys with bombs when out of mavs.
