As I’ve said before I like fat chicks I mean Hogs, I mean the A-10. In my opinion it’s stupidity to its extrema for the Air Force to get rid of the single best close air support platform just because they want to get their shiny new toy the F-35. The Air Force claims the F-35 will do just as good a job as the A-10 but that’s just bullshit. The article above lists a few of the reasons the F-35 will suck at close air support but the one no one ever mentions is the fact that the F-35 is so expensive the Air Force will never risk losing one just to save a few grunts. 5th generation fighter=expensive poorly trained teenager with rifle=cheap.
