House panel votes to keep the A-10 Warthog flying another year

Enviado
 
Colonel McSally, Army and CAS One, Air Force suits Zero. Now it is on to the Senate where the Air Force has even less of a chance of killing the A-10. It is unlikely it will end up being a big issue in the ending huge budget for Obama to kill it. (thehill.com) Más...

Smart move and good news for Common Sense. Because, you know, the AF will never admit to their F35 debacle.. .. aw heck, I was hoping to never say that F word again...

Well, that Fword won't even be good and available until 2020. That's 5 years away. I think it should have been longer than a year. The Fword ain't gonna make it. Hunk of Junk.

keep it funded and working. The newest A-10 left Hagerstown Assembly in 1984, keep it fed, keep it fit, it will keep doing its job. At some point, a replacement will be needed. (might get a good deal on some low time Su-25's.....) When you need a hammer right now, a 'pneudraulic nail setting/demolition and anti-gravity blender tool system' still in the early R&D phase is of little use. A hammer. Hit the nail, move on.
