The Air Force is hoping to retire more A-10 Warthogs in 2025, as the service continues
to readjust its overall strategies and future aircraft based on China’s growing threat in
the Pacific. In their 2025 budget request, Air Force officials are hoping to retire 250
aircraft—with 56 of those divestments being A-10s. If passed, it would mark the largest
number of the close-air support stalwarts sent to the boneyard—the final resting place
for scrapped aircraft.
