This plane kicks ass
Its got a GAU-8A Avenger 30mm cannon firing 10- pound depleted uranium anti-tank shells fast enough to coat a football field in a second (between 3800 and 4000 rounds per minute/close to 70 rp second),
2 Rolls Royce 420 hp turbo injection engines
Near indestructible from sides and bottom due to heavy armor plating
The only real drawback is because of its straight wings and weight, it can only go up to about 400 mph.
And yes (unless you havent clicked the links above) it is ugly.

I think if I got into a fight with that plane I could beat it with my bare hands.

A SAM (surface to air missile) hit an a-10 on the wing, the wing got sucked through the engine, the plane kept flying, all the way back to base

A-10's can get back home with half of one wing missing, part of the tail shot off, one engine, and not much fuel to speak of.
Try that with an F-22
It aint gonna happen.

The F-22 woudlnt' get shot.

The F-22 can complie shoot lists and eliminate 8 targetes with its AMRAAMs in the space of about 20 seconds. In 20 seconds it can target, fire and forget 8 missles.

The A-10 is a beast but the F-22 owns.

A-10's cannon makes me cum.

yeah, the gattling gun in the nose of the A-10 is awsome.

I also fail to understand why the Phoenix missle system on the F-14 hasn't been applied to the F-22. a 100 mile range air to air missle should be mounted on the most dangerous plane in the world. The stupid thing is an F-14 could still take an F-22 purely because it has longer missle range.

yeah but the pheonix is not really accurate, f14 firing it mostley do that in groups to groups of enemy planes to increase hit chances (specially from carriers before a dogfight).
f-22 is land based i thought?

The A-10 is to be replaced sometime. I forgot which plane is supposed to replace it, but I read about it in the Air Force Times. I'll try to dig it up later...

Of course the F-22 is land based.

I never knew Phoenix had accuracy issues. If they targetted an F-22 from 80 miles off they could fire 2 missles off turn and afterburn it away and the F-22 would never catch them.

Key to air to air combat is the missles. Russian's have it down in a dog fight b/c of the Archer. Deadly fucker. SIdewidner is shit compared to that.

the only problem is the Pheonix would have targeting issues due to the Raptor being semi-stealth.

RXP

True, but the semi stealth thing is way overblown. F-117's can be picked up by the S-300.

Though the F-117 is difficult to detect, it isnt perfectly stealth. The SR-71 Blackbird (before removed from service) couldnt get shot down because of 2 things, it normally flew above the celing of most other planes and SAM's, and it flew a few times faster than the speed of sound. Oh, and the A-10 will be in service until at least 2025. A scary thing about the A-10, if one mistakes friendlies for enemies, with that 30mm cannon, you get the point.

RXP

SR-71 could be shot down by the S-300, however.

Spy planes are a waste of time with sats.

THe B-2's meant to be most sealthy. But @ 2billion a plane whoa.

Also the Su-37 owns.

Thats a real plane? I asked around and nobody really knew what it was. Only place ive really seen one is on ace combat 04. In which case, the X-02 rules. Either target 4 enemies at once, take em out on the ground, or give em a missile they cant run from (QAAM)

RXP

Indeed because of the economic problems in Russia obviously it didn't make it into production. But yes it's real. Su-35 is amazing too. The Su-27 could cobra without thrust vectoring imagine what the Su-35's a and Su-37's can do. In a dog fight it would be stupid. Although of course now days no dog fights.

It just sucks when planes cant hit the runway (no pun intended) because of a country's economic situation.

A dogfight isnt a good thing for an A-10, but if it can catch the enemy on the ground, its chances go way up.

I do. My penis has a built in F-22 300mm sub-machine gun and added armour plating with a 50 mile range. Totally outclasses the A-22 penis, which had only, like, 20mm shielding with a 200mm sub-machine gun mounting in the testicles. I mean, come on!

Guns have a range of 0.7km max. Idoit.

Yes. Because technical accuracy was the point of my post.

Also there is no aircraft called the A-22. Idoit.

You'll notice I said the A-22 penis, not the A-22 aircraft.

Idiot.

How did the conversation go from the A-10 to some guy's penis?

How does an aircraft even have a penis? You are making no fucking sense. Idoit.

Not really I am wasted on you. Geez. For a guy who loves reading in between the lines (your poetry guy right?) you can't do much of that.

I just posted about the plane to encourage people to go steal one and shoot stuff with it. didnt expect it to get this hot.

Yes, I write poetry. Doesn't necessarily mean reading between the lines is a character trait of mine.
