First, you shouldn’t even trust a real A-10 pilot on this topic, because “flying a plane” is not a skillset particularly relevant to “determining which fleet of planes best serves the needs for the role of CAS over the next forty years of combat”.

If you have a disagreement with any of the actual points I raised, I’m all ears.

Third, you might be surprised to see how far these “games” have progressed in the past thirty years.
