I didnt think A10's would be the preferred choice for Iran. Iran have good anti-air, and the A10 is a slower craft.
Plus, why use jets when cruise missiles are sufficient?

the A-10 could be used in the gulf against ships.
a A-10 with a full armament load-out could take out just about everything with the full armament. from small speed boats to destroyers
and operate from dirt strips next to the gulf.

Neither will be the next hit I suspect. Something like 24 HC/MC/AC-130s, along with a number of KC-135s, and smaller aircraft headed to the African theater recently.

Don't forget, Syria has to go down before Iran.

I figure Near East theatre. idk about A-10 basing for an Iran operation, it seems like a Naval aviation layer under a USAF intercept/deep strike force would work there.

They are rarely ..... well actually, never sent in when there are established anti air batteries. A-10's have minimal defensive measures and would air fodder until all anti air defenses are eliminated.

A-10s were designed to fly under SAMs and are heavily armored to withstand ground fire. One of their primary missions is the Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses or SEAD.

I'd agree in that it's armor, no other aircraft can match but to say one of their primary mission is the suppression of enemy air defense would be a tad misleading.

They are a slow aircraft and have limited jamming capability. Their primary role is ground support and mechanized killers.

If they fly East, I'll know about it. I live 8 miles from the base. They run air drills on Thursdays, right over my house.

A-10's are used for INF. Support, kinda like the Apache, or Cobra.....

are also known around some parts to fly with one or no wings attached..

Where ever they are going, it would prob. be a place where a large pile of troops are.. Me would think...

would not waste all of those resources on Syria, or Iran..

If I had to guess.. The far east....
