This takes me back to my Ace Combat Infinity days.

Five paint schemes for the Warthog, and a bright pink Idolmaster Special Edition B-2 bomber.

Yeah, there is no reason to shelf this plane, it's absolutely amazing, and it's versatility is top notch.

I still want to see the flyoff between a 35 and a 10


Just make sure you have multiple medical teams on standby for all the broken egos that will result

There's every reason for the Air Force brass to threaten to put the A-10 out to pasture. They know damned well that Congress won't allow it to die. So, the Air Force says they need to cut the A-10 in order to have funding for whatever else, and lo and behold, Congress ponies up the cash to "save" the A-10, rather than declare another project as lower priority. The A-10 has a very loyal base of support, and no one cares that saving the A-10 from this periodic game of three-card monte means other, less worthy, programs get funded.

We fall for this, every single time. I can't even get my dog to fetch this reliably, and he's a retriever.

Which is why they want to shelf it.
