The A-10 systems manager said the Air Force has “resourced the A-10 to divest yet flew it like an enduring fleet, rapidly accelerating [the] decline toward today’s hollowing fleet."
Is the A-10 hopelessly outdated for modern warfare? Should the A-10 be divested in favor of stealthy high-flying jet fighters and various drone platforms? The war in Ukraine is showing the modern battlefield is a dangerous place for CAS. Perhaps that role should be given to UAVs/drones.
