Have you seen any of the articles on the COIN Bronco that the U.S. was using in Iraq a couple of years ago? Apparently, it kicked quite a lot of ass, but not enough, I guess, to merit resurrecting the design.

For a hard come-down, Google the video of a Venezuelan F-16 shooting down an OV-10 during a coup-de-etat. IIRC, it was a gun kill.
