Since the prop close air support planes will supplement the A-10, it is worth testing. On the ground any close air support is welcome.

The Air Force also uses turboprops for flight training.

Perfect aircraft for hostile missions in friendly environments. All we need to do is hang a GAU-8/A on it. :laughhard :laughhard :laughhard


This is a high-low mix for CAS, like the F-15/F-16 grew to be, back in the day; wouldn't bet against mission creep for the little brother. Bean-counters rule.

And why does the A-37 come to mind? And what it took to turn a Tweet into a Dragonfly.

Was wearing my new A-10 tee shirt yesterday: "A-10 Warthog - Providing diplomacy by other means since 1977"
