Four A-10s at their revetment parking spots at Kandahar. The large concrete walls protect the aircraft for indirect fires, like rockets of mortars. When such a weapon impact the platform or revetments, hopefully only one aircraft will be damaged. The 104th Fighter Squadron "Baltimore Oriole" is a unit of the Maryland Air National Guard, 175th Wing stationed at Baltimore/Martin State (MD), also named Warfield Air National Guard Base, Middle River. Visible are three other A-10Cs: 78-0682, 78-0702 and 78-0719.
