This is one of those good ones that require reading between the lines. The A-10 was developed as a strict close support a/c in the wake of some of the failures of the Vietnam war. The Army really wanted the plane but due to the Key West agreement of 1948 the US Army cannothave very many fixed wing a/c (it's why we have helicopter gunships). The AF did not like the plane because it didn't have a lot of 'all-weather' computerized systems. The production run was short and the manufacturer, Republic Aviation of Long Island, NY, is now out of business. Schwartzkoff wanted every A-10 he could get during Desert Storm. They are the a/c largely responsible for the 'Highway of Death' at the end of that conflict. The thirty-millimeter chain gun which the A-10 is equipped with fires depleted urainium shells. The d/u contamination after both Desert Storm and Kosovo has been an ongoing issue. --editor
