>> In the Battle of Nasiriyah, an American force of Amphibious Assault Vehicles (AAVs) and infantry under intense enemy fire were misidentified as an Iraqi armored column by two U.S. Air Force A-10s who carried out bombing and strafing runs on them. 17 were wounded as a result.
>> 190th Fighter Squadron/Blues and Royals friendly fire incident – 28 March 2003. A pair of American A-10s from the 190th attacked four British armoured reconnaissance vehicles of the Blues and Royals, killing L/CoH. Matty Hull and injuring five others.
>>On 6 April 2006, a British convoy in Afghanistan wounded 13 Afghan police officers and killed seven, after calling in a US airstrike on what they thought was a Taliban attack.
(though I'll give you the A-10s were just doing what the FAC asked them to)
>>Operation Medusa (2006): 1 – Two U.S. A-10 Thunderbolts accidentally strafed NATO forces in southern Afghanistan, killing Canadian Private Mark Anthony Graham.
(and wounding 30 others)
In that same time period was 1 B1 incident;
>>Five United States Special forces operatives, an Afghan Army counterpart, and an interpreter were killed by friendly fire in Southern Zabul Province on June 9, 2014. Whilst on patrol, and coming under heavy Taliban fire, an air-strike was called in and a B-1 Lancer bomber misdirected its payload killing the seven military personnel amongst others
Which was largely a result of the JTAC not being on top of things.
I didn't want to open it back to 91 because the B1 hasn't been doing CAS that long, but if you want to bring that up....
>>During the Battle of Khafji, 11 American Marines were killed in two major incidents when their light armored vehicles (LAV's) were hit by missiles fired by a USAF A-10.
>>An American A-10 during Operation Desert Storm attacked British Warrior MICVs, resulting in nine British dead and numerous casualties.
(numerous = 11 wounded)
So from an operational lifetime standpoint, the A-10's bodycount stands at 28 American Casualties, 26 British Casualties, and 31 Canadian Casualties. If you considered ANA/ANP as "blue" forces, that would be an additional 20.
By contrast, the B1-B is at 5 American Casualties and 2 Afghani Casualties.
Using your own provided "math", adjusting by a factor of 6.5 (which is horribly bogus but I don't have the time to go into how screwed your math is, as skewed as you have it in the A-10's favour, that's still *13* casualties, to the B1's 7.
So really, talk to me about "cooking the books". If you try and argue that deaths and casualties are different, I'm done, there's just no point.
