D-M hosted the 7th biannual Hawgsmoke Competition at Gila Bend Auxiliary Field Aug. 15-17. The 355th Fighter Wing welcomed 18 A-10 squadrons and teams from around the world during the competition.

Davis-Monthan hosted 18 A-10 squadrons from around the world for the 7th biannual Hawgsmoke Competition here Aug. 15-17.

Hawgsmoke is an aerial competition focusing on A-10 tactics such as moving target strafe techniques, GPS-out navigation, and degraded weapons delivery. Both the individual and team portions of the competition are conducted and evaluated at the Barry M. Goldwater Range and the Gila Bend Auxiliary Field.

As the second place winners of the 2010 Hawgsmoke games, D-M was given the honor of hosting this year’s event.

The 357th FS took home the victory from this year’s competition, making it the second Hawgsmoke in a row the Desert Lightning Team has won.

Coming in second is the 66th Weapons School out of Nellis AFB, Nev. They are slated to host Hawgsmoke 2014.
