Bagram Airmen Use Dragon

30mm high-explosive incendiary rounds feed through a GFU-7 "Dragon" during processing at Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan, Dec. 2. The Ammo Flight at Bagram Air Field, part of the 455th Expeditionary Maintenance Squadron, uses the GFU-7 to inspect these rounds which form the backbone of the A-10 Thunderbolt II's armament and ready them for seamless loading into the aircraft.
