Warthogs At The Trough

A great photo from Strategy Page:

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, UNITED STATES08.27.2019 - A KC-135R assigned to the Utah Air National Guard's 151st Air Refueling Wing conducts air refueling operations with A-10s assigned to the 23rd Fighter Group, Moody Air Force base, Georgia. The A-10s received fuel during their cross-country flight enroute to Nellis Air Force base, Nevada. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Tech. Sgt. John Winn)
This aircraft, more than any other, is the one that soldiers love to see  loitering.  The other fast-movers may have their place, but there is nothing quite as comforting as Warthogs overhead.
