Technically an A10 is not a fighter jet, it's a close air support plane (USAF vet).

So what. it was just a training rocket. that's why you go through training, to make mistakes and learn from them... basically more no news news ; some idiots in the media trying to create controversy where there isn't any.

the A-10 is not a fighter jet, it is close air support.

The A-10 is not a fighter. US fighter aircraft are almost universally designated as an "F-XXX" (the x's being numbers, though we're only using 2 right now), with the "F" standing for fighter.
