A-10 Warthog Might Disappear in Future

The A-10 Warthogs, also known as Thunderbolts, are a lean and mean set of aircraft the United State possesses. But recently, the government has been making plans to ret rid of the whole fleet. 

New aircraft and security-enhancing weapons are to be considered in place of these defunct attack options. However, the Department of Defense is in somewhat of a fix. There are the pros and cons of the situation that are equally balanced on both sides of the argument.

Especially, the effect this scrapping of the A-10 Warthogs will have on military bases and defense contractors is of the utmost significance. The Pentagon budget for the current year features such cuts in employee pays and aircraft fleets. 

By ending the production of this aircraft, a whole lot of money could be saved and put to better use. Almost $3.5 billion will accumulate over a period of half a decade via this strategy.

Currently, the United States possesses 300 Warthogs. Meanwhile, the U-2 spy planes are to meet the same fate. The Global Hawk is to replace them as the standard aircraft. 

Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman will vie with one another for contracts for the Warthog. It’s a little early to make any statements regarding the A-10 Thunderbolt. Several other aircraft are being considered as candidates for the scrap heap. 

The orders of course come from the Pentagon so they have the upper hand in these matters. The final word can only belong to them and as far as Warthog aircraft are concerned the decision appears to be in the negative. 

The A-10 Warthog aircraft are very effective at low levels and they are operated by pilots who take a great deal of pride in their work. It would indeed be a shame to see them scrapped. But the times change and the old has to make way for the new. And that is the way the wind blows.
