too bad the government wants to retire this beautiful piece of terrorist slaughtering american engineering
A lot of Squadron commanders want to retire the A-10 and replace it with F-35s and newer drones because they want their fleet to look “sexy” with new “advanced” technologies in order to get promotions and praise etc. As far as I’m concerned, sexy is what gets the job done.
Everyone that I’ve spoken to with any expertise on the matter, and all the reading I’ve done has suggested that the A-10 is unparalleled in its ability to carry out close air support missions. Real shame that folks want it cut for whatever reason.
These guys come in so close on their strafe runs, you’ll see the pilot through the gun smoke. They will get as close as they need to if its what you need to survive.
Proud to know my $9/hour university job that consists of me occasionally updating inventory and predominantly watching Always Sunny with my hand in my pants helps pay for this kind of shit.
