    This might mean more F-22s for the USAF. :nana:

    the F 35 has a less important role with the airforce if they adopt the the FB 22

    well, that will at least drive down the price of F-22s.

    The FB-22 would be a nice replacement for the F-15E, but it probably costs more money than a F/A-22.

    yes it will be more expensive but not by a massive amount because it shares radar and avionics with the F 22 and the engines already are in the F 35 the airframe is fairly close to the F 22

    I think the Navy would still get their JSFs.
