Dva bi trebalo da zamene jednog...kazu tako je jeftinije,
a spominju se A-29 Super Tucano i Textron AirLand’s Scorpion
USAF seeks two new close-air support aircraft
Citat:n a recent briefing, air force officials laid out their plan for the light-attack OA-X and the A-X2, a short-term replacement for the A-10. The service is looking at an initial order of about 20 aircraft for the OA-X mission a early as next year, with serious procurement launching in Fiscal 2018, Dan Goure, an analyst at the Lexington Institute, tells FlightGlobal. To meet that rapid need, the service is examining two fully developed aircraft, Beechcraft’s AT-6 and Embraer’s A-29 Super Tucano, and are planning a “fly off” for this fall.

The air force has excluded Textron AirLand’s Scorpion, a dual light attack fighter and trainer aircraft still in its development phase, as an option for OA-X.

Kaže da su Textrona izuzeli iz planova za nabavku, jer im trebaju gotovi, "off the shelf" proizvodi. Ne znam kako se AT-6 uklapa u taj opis, tako da bi Embraer mogao lako da pobedi u takmičenju za ovo, prelazno rešenje.

USAF podmece nogu A-10 gde god stigne. Sada skidaju delove sa uskladistenih u pustinji, samo 20 ostali u stanju spremnom za upotrebu.

Citat:As of late July, 49 A-10A and 50 A-10Cs were sunbathing at the Arizona boneyard.

The “C” version is an upgrade to the airframe that gives the airplane an additional 8,000 hours of flying time and new avionics. For reasons that remain unclear, the Air Force is destroying stored A-10s, even some of the A-10Cs, many of which still have thousands of hours of life remaining.

I wrote to the Air Force to ask for detailed information about the stored Warthogs. Terry Pittman from AMARG declined to answer all of my questions. “We consider this information to be for official use only,” Pittman wrote.

But Pittman did say that the Air Force has removed parts and engines from many of the stored A-10Cs. “Most of these aircraft have experienced some reclamation of critically-needed parts.” Just 20 A-10Cs in the highest category of preservation are exempt from “cannibalization.”
