I have long thought that the USMC would be better served using old USAF(rebuilt/upgraded) A-10's or even open up the A-10 production line again.....If Fairchild can't do it, then bid it out to Boeing, Lockheed, Northrup-Grumman, Raytheon, etc.

This is a perfect plane for USMC "close air support". I don't really know why they weren't looked at seriously by the USMC to begin with....(were they..???????)

Now, if the USMC want's a new jet, give them a version of the Navy's F-35.....Like they do today with the F/A-18C/D......Too, didn't the Swedes have a SAAB jet that would land on roads....
