Haha, I've got friends in the Civil Air Patrol that are waiting with baited breath for the A-10 to be decommissioned because they're hoping the A-10
will be reassigned as a civilian patrol craft.
Some of them are like "Yea, if they just take that gun out it'd make a great slow-flying search and rescue aircraft."
I'm pretty sure you can't just take the gun out of the A-10, as far as I'm aware the A-10 was pretty much designed like this.
"Hey, we designed this giant gatling gun the size of a volkswagen, what should we do with it?"
"Build an airplane around it."
