The A-10 rants are full of factual inaccuracies.

I thought he played a role in the Republic TFX? Isn't he the guy that said Vought "wrecked his design" when they navalized it?Pierre Sprey stuff was all wrong. Pierre Sprey wasn't "the designer" of the A-10 or F-16 but he did play a role in the concept formulation and requirements of both systems. Also Alexander Kartveli retired from Republic in June 1962 and worked as a consultant until his death in 1974, I'd hesitate to call him the designer of anything past the F-105.
