Who Ya Gonna Call? Tankbusters!

An attack aircraft that the Pentagon is trying to get rid of has been deployed to the Middle East to take on the Islamic State.

A squadron-sized element of A-10 Thunderbolts arrived in the region during the week of Nov. 17-21, according to the Air Force. The aircraft were previously being used in Afghanistan.

I can't imagine the Zoomies ever doing this with their precious F-35 Turkeys.

I've been wondering about the F35's too.

Why so down on turkey's, Comrade. They can generally fly better than a F-35, as I've never seen a turkey catch fire because it was flapping it's wings.

Instapundit Dotcom, I've had a lot to say about the F-35 over the years.

The Chair Force says it wants to eliminate the A-10s. Not the rest of the Pentagon, and surely nor the Army.

Dale Brown should have been writing about the A-10 all along. It's the granddaddy that won't stop working better than anything else!
