An A-10/Harrier hybrid?

The Major's Email: British Harrier Support in Afghanistan, Revisited (defense acquisition, defence purchasing, military procurement)
After looking at the success of both the A-10 and Harrier in the close air support (CAS) role, it really is sad that both aircraft will have no direct replacements, and are already at the end of their lives...Which begs the question, why not a replacement for these 2 aircraft that combines the special features of the 2 aircraft, the armoured tub and 30mm cannon of the A-10, and the vertical take-off capability of the harrier. (Remember to throw in a 2nd seat for an extra pair of eyes...)
