In the Philippines, a Vietnam War-era plane takes center stage fighting ISIS | Washington Post

The propeller plane pitched into a dive over a city. The pilot released a bomb as the plane leveled off, and the ordnance ripped into an urban neighborhood, spraying debris over several buildings.

The scene, captured in a recent viral video, is said to have occurred over Marawi, a city of 200,000 people in the southern Philippines where a fierce battle has been waged since last month between government security forces and militants aligned with the Islamic State. Most residents have fled the city, and bombs have been dropped regularly onto areas held by the militants.

The OV-10 Bronco Is Wailing On ISIS Yet Again, This Time In The Philippines
Over 50 years since its first flight, the OV-10 is proving to the world once again just how relevant light air support aircraft can be.

The core of the southern Filipino city of Marawi was seized by Maute and Abu Sayyaf militants, which are directly affiliated with the Islamic State, on May 23th. Since then, Philippines armed forces have performed a a rolling counter-assault on the area in an attempt to dislodge the extremists. The Philippine Air Force's go-to weapon system for the battle? The OV-10 Bronco.
