re: Close up of an A-10 lighting up a couple of Hadjis - FlyingTiger06
[quote]Yes, I'm saying that. I'd like to hear more though.[/quote] OK, you were right and I screwed up...what I was thinking of was the C-123 that the National Guard does use. The Marines and the Navy have a few C-130s. My apologies for the mistake. I guess the few other fixed wing aircraft ...

[quote]What unit were you in/command under? I have served under MG Lyons too. I'm a civilian now so I can say I'm not a fan[/quote] I was in the ACCE (later renamed/re-org'd into the 9th AETF-A) and MG Lyon was the ACCE Director. This was right before he was the ACC/A3. Yes, he was a pain in th...

re: Close up of an A-10 lighting up a couple of Hadjis - FlyingTiger06
You and I both know some of those reports are BS and that there's often more to the story but that isn't just the AF sticking it to the Army. Hell, one of the largest single CIVCAS events in 2010 was when a B-1 dropped a shit-ton of JDAMs on what the Afghans later claimed was a "friendly supply colu...

re: Close up of an A-10 lighting up a couple of Hadjis - FlyingTiger06
[quote]Those newer ac can cover that mission about like I can cover LF7 out of the flat.[/quote] Your analogy falls flat because the AF isn't looking to replace the A-10 in the CAS mission 1v1. It is a system of systems approach. In that light, to carry your analogy forward the AF intends to co...

[quote]I'll take CCA all day because I am much more responsive to the GFC[/quote] More responsive, but still just as negligent. I gave just one example, there were many. One of my jobs over there was to track CIVCAS for COMISAF. CCA was the #1 cause of CIVCAS over there. [quote]If you talki...

[quote]Sen. John McCain addressing Air Force Chief Welsh on the issue of retiring the A-10[/quote] McCain has an ax to grind because the A-10s are at Davis Monthan AFB in AZ and the F-35 isn't slated to be based there. He is grandstanding for votes. ...

[quote]I saw an interview with a Taliban commander. He said the things we fear the most are the A10 and the AC130 gunship. Case closed[/quote] And if you would have interviewed the Japanese after WWII they would have told you they feared the B-29. Does that mean we should have kept them around a...

[quote]Per a good friend of mine who is a retired officer who flew A 10s in Desert Storm, there was talk of turning the A 10 fleet over to the Army for CAS[/quote] Not saying your friend is lying, but he was probably misinformed. There's no way this would happen. And if it did, it wouldn't go v...

re: Close up of an A-10 lighting up a couple of Hadjis - FlyingTiger06
[quote]If the AF scraps the A-10 then I pray that the USMC or Army takes it over[/quote] If the USMC or Army were that serious they should allow the AF to get a bigger slice of the Defense budget in order to fund it. Since they won't, the AF is stuck with the decision on whether it puts funds tow...
