Del, I think the Afghans bought Su 25s for their CAS operations. The Frogfoot is a much tougher bird than the Tucano and I would bet it's cheaper
too. I think that the Iraqi AF had Su 25s prior to Desert Storm so they have experience with this bird.
I enjoyed flying the Mohawk when it was clean without hanging SLAR or gas tanks on it . At about 15000 pounds its a little sports car. The only bad
things were sitting on the ejection seat on long flights and it was bug ugly. I flew one from Georgia to Arizona and I didn't walk right for a few
