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.
