    Looks like a great way to kill pilots with MANPADS

    Why didn't they just adopt a light jet fighter? Like a T-7 attack version?

      At that point you might as well use an F-16.

        Why? A light fighter is way cheaper to purchase and to run as well. You can buy a Aero L-159 ALCA for under $5 million and is far more survivable than a crop duster.

          The USAF has F16s aplenty though. Props are even cheaper, quieter, and can be armed well enough to dab on skinnies with impunity. USSOCOM doesn't want to spend any more on the role than that, if its not enough they'll use real jets.

              Literally not who SkyWarden is aimed at, they'd just use F-16s. It's aimed at tribal dirt farmers who are lucky if they have MANPADS and legacy AAA, which it can mog with PGMs from standoff.

    The only improvement I would suggest is the ability to roll down a window so the pilot can take potshots at people with his sidearm.

    Serious question. Would a modern p-38 styled prop plane be realistic in this day and age? I'd imagine w/latest engines and construction design you could put an insane amount of hardpoints and ordinance compared to anything used today.

      The niche of cheap CAS bird for SOF doesn't really have room for it. Operator types often do missions where getting in a big fight is undesireable so a huge koad of weapons isn' t always useful. At a certain point you're going to spring for a helicopter gunship, a fighter, or something like AC-130.

        ahh, I'm not too versed on the particulars of low tier CAS, just really want to see p-38's again 🙂

          Your closest equivalent may be large dual-prop drones like Akinci.
