I think the future for close air support is not going to be manned aircraft at all, but rather a drone swarm equipped with sensors and designators in numbers to give a high degree of redundancy, and terminally guided munitions fired from artillery and mortars, with small missiles also in the mix.

My understanding is that if the Big European War occurred, helicopters would take out the air defense systems, then the A-10s would take out the tanks and IFVs.

Hey, maybe the two first hours it would be like this. After that, or even sooner, nukes would start their only fly

BTW, the future of support in a contested space is unmanned, distributed, with massive swarms and a lot of NLOS / stand off power involved.

Thing is, both sides would do that
