DISCUSSION

A-10 is the Miata of military vehicles because it's always the right answer.

I really like the fact there was a group of guys in the government who sat in a meeting 30+ years ago and had a conversation like this:

First Guy: "So let me make sure I understand. You want to take a gun the size of a Chevy Monte Carlo, build a jet around it and paint a funny face on it so it looks like it's spitting fire?"

Second Guy: "In a nutshell, yeah that's correct".

First Guy: "Sure is ugly¨.

Second Guy: "It's a big ass flying gun. If you approach it from that perspective, I think the look will grow on you".

Other Guys in Room: (nodding in agreement)

First Guy: "Okay. Just lose the face on the nose".

Second Guy: "Are you kidding? It's a flying gun!

First Guy: "Yeah, you're right. A-10 nomenclature. What are you going to call it?

Second Guy: We were thinking Megatron".

First Guy: "For a flying gun? Too cartoony. How about Warthog?"

Second Guy: "I like it. Deal?"

First Guy: "Deal".
