Air Force Chief Says Cutting A-10 Fleet Would Save $3.7 Billion

USAF Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh said that mothballing the beloved A-10 Warthog fleet could save the service a substantial $3.7 billion, a compelling amount of money in the face of the $12 billion the Air Force must save each year for the next decade in the face of sequestration.
No decision has been made yet but the Air Force has done the numbers on the A-10 as well as the KC-10 fleet, which it also may mothball for savings estimated at $2.5 billion.
