When close air support is called to battle, there is no margin for the A-10C Thunderbolt II weapon systems to fail. The 355th Equipment Maintenance Squadrons armament flight is responsible for loading ammunition and disassembling weapon systems for inspection and cleaning. “Our jobs as weapons personnel means we cover everything weapon related including working on the gun system, bomb systems and loading the jet with live ammunition,” said Staff Sgt. Justin Fuller, 355th EMS gun section supervisor.
