2. I was trying to search google for arguments in favor of ditching the A-10

but I didn't have much luck. I did, however, find this rather infuriating article that details some of the shenanigans. There really needs to be an investigation into this, because there is obviously some shady stuff going down. Some bribery or something?

4. The problems with the A-10s

Are that they are not expensive enough for the MIC to make maximum profits off them. It is a relatively simple, inexpensive aircraft that, for the MIC, is cheap to build and maintain. They don't like that. It cuts into their profits.

3. The ones with the shark teeth painted on the nose (yes, Virginia, they are not tiger teeth)

are from Louisiana. They are reminiscent of the original Flying Tigers of General Claire Chennault's P-40 squadron that flew in China against the Japanese prior to the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Why Tigers? Because they honored Wheats Tigers dating to the Civil War.

Why Shark teeth? Because the Japanese were superstitious about sharks - they considered them bad luck. (Gee, I wonder why?)
