The military is doing it again. Just like we still have the B-52 flying around, so will the A-10. The A-10 is a wonderful aircraft to fly but never
did serve its' true purpose in battle. Yes, it has been involved in major conflicts in the Middle East but it proved to be a sitting target for
The military relalized this long before the crisis errupted in the sands of Arbrian desert but they used them anyway. We lost both aircraft and
flight crews to there stupidy. Why do you think the Soviets withdrew there SU-25 from Afganistan?
Instead of wasting lives and dollars on this aircraft we should be developing ground attack UCAVs. This is the wave of the furture not only from the
cost per airframe but also lives saved.
