This 81st EXPEDITIONARY FIGHTER SQUADRON – PANTHERS 2010 PATCH was done for their deployment to Kanhahar Air Base, Afghanistan.
The Panthers returned to Afghanistan with the A-10C in May 2010, this time to Kandahar AB in the south. Despite the heat, wind and dust, the 81 FS flew over 9,500 hours on over 2,100 sorties and employed over 70,000 rounds of 30mm, 159 precision weapons and 141 rockets while again providing precision close air support to OEF and ISAF operations.
This was their first deployement with the A-10C. 81st Fighter Squadron flew the A-10 out of Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany from 1994 until 2013.
