F-14D said:Well, they could do that, but think about it: How are we going to get the enemy to only operate near those particular bases?. In some cases we might even have to provide transportation for them to CONUS so that we can attack them!famvburg said:I remember when the USAF was talking of giving the USA A-10s a few years back. I still have an unfinished, OD painted A-10 model waiting on Army decals, etc., to finish. Regarding the statement of the Army not being allowed to build runways, what about Army bases that already have runways? Why couldn't they be based at these bases?
Because Air Force A-10s only operate from US Air Force bases overseas. Really? Pretty much any time the US military operates overseas, it borrows airbases from in-theater allies, adapts existing non-military facilities, or builds bases from scratch. And when the USAF does that, thanks to the miracles of jointness, such bases are often used by multiple services anyway.
