I'm not arguing you point, just asking for clarity. If the enemy can shoot down an SU-25 and by extension an A-10 then how would an Apache help. I did not know about the palletized systems already in use, I wonder if a mini version of a Phalanx using a 7.62 mini gun would be able to stop a manpad? If that was part of the gunship pallet and mounted to the ramp? I'm just dreaming now I know, but it does sound really cool!
