Re: “Wired: A-10 Warthog "Is Ruthlessly Effective, and the Grunts on the Ground Absolutely Love It Because It Keeps Them Safe"

The Air Force should just stop pretending the F-35 will ever be a decent platform. It can never replace the A-10 nor the F-16, both of which are 40+ year old designs. They were both nearly perfect aerodynamically when they were conceived and built, and to this day are two of the most impressive jets ever to take flight. Both have had massive avionics upgrades over their life span, and their periodic maintenance programs and rolling upgrades have kept them doing their jobs well.

No planes in the world top either for what they do, and as long as the F15 or F22 are flying top cover they cannot be beat in their individual rolls of CAS and dog fighter. We don't need the F-35.
