11. USAF has never wanted the close air support role

They should give the A-10 to the Marines who will know what to do with it.

F/A-18 was sold as a fighter/bomber to replace the F-14 and A-6/A-4/A-7 and trainer aircraft. It does neither role well and is already up to about 4 different configurations as it tries to fill all the aircraft roles.
