The Air Force released its strategy for updating the ACC. Within this strategy it is mentioned a need for a new CAS platform to replace the A-10. Could it be that they have finally realized that the F-35 will not fit that bill? Will they actually make sure it is a pure CAS platform and not try to stuff as many toys as possible into it - which is one of the main reasons that the F-35 went off the rails.

Alright I might be simple. But why not just redo the A-10. I understand that we can't fit the new tech in the old craft. Why not just start from the beginning and just redo the old air frame to fit the new stuff. Redo the the cockpit and the engines. Redo the flight system and put all the new toys into it. Just keep the present craft configuration. That plane is a Freaking beast and is like a damn G-shock watch. Can't bust it!
