A-10 survives a budget battle

Air Force Reluctantly Upgrades A-10s After Congress Complains
Strongly-worded letter preserves attack jets … for the time being
The A-10 is vastly superior to alternative ground combat support aircraft.  It is tough and it can deliver devastating firepower.  Just ask the Taliban or al Qaeda forces who have come up against it.  It is too bad there is not a version that can launch and land on air craft carriers, because the plane would be ideal for the Marines and is far superior to the Harrier.   Props to Sen. Kelly Ayote for keeping the Air Force from grounding this plane.
