A U.S. Air Force pilot assigned to the 75th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron prepares to taxi an A-10 Thunderbolt II prior to a combat sortie in the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility at Al Dhafra Air Base, United Arab Emirates, April 20, 2022. The deployment of A-10s in the region provides additional capability in the Middle East alongside fighter aircraft. This deployment ensures close air support specialists are able to build upon their skills in environments outside of the United States and ensure combat operations remain sharp across the force.
