U.S. Military Likely to Retire the A-10


The cynical part of my reaction is: I guess it's too cheap and does it's job too well. Best replace it by a fragile, expensive plane that's a jack-of-all-trades and master of none... (JSF, I'm looking at you... (though, actually, it's not yet clear that the F-35 can actually do anything...))

Needless to say, the Pentagon knows more--and cares more--than I do, though. So I expect that that part of my reaction really is just cheap cynicism.

Most likely, the military is thinking of performing the A-10's missions with drones, not with the JSF.
