    I didn't say it didn't happen, I said I've never seen it.

    I'm sure the A-10 doesn't do it due to its much wider wheel base, but I have seen F16/15s doing it.

    Yeah, staggered taxi is standard for smaller fighters during daylight operations, and it's valid for A-10s too depending on local procedure. In the USAF, every Wing has a supplement to the ops AFIs outlining deviations and special considerations when operating at in the local area. It's entirely possible that the 476th at Moody doesn't stagger as standard procedure, while the 354th at Davis-Monthan does, for example.

    As Eddie mentioned, it's only done on taxiways that are at least 75ft wide (it might be wider for the A-10), and there aren't many of those in the DCS Georgia theater.
