Few American airplanes are as beloved as the A-10 Thunderbolt II. Affectionately known as the "Warthog," the iconic ground attack fighter is loud, ugly, deadly, and almost ancient. First flown in 1975, the plane is clearly showing signs of age, which is partly why the Air Force has spent decades developing a replacement. The plane they chose, the expensive, problem-riddled F-35, is at the best of times a poor candidate for the A-10's old job. So today, as a joke, U.S. Air Forces Central Command tweeted out their suggested Warthog replacement: the X-Wing, from Star Wars.
