One more point, at current prices, tbh, F-35 is the most attractive option.USN is not responsible for anything wrong with F-35 because USN was forced to participate in the program.
The most important thing that everyone needs to understand whenever commenting on F-35 is that JSF was never about delivering what any of the services wanted. JSF was Lockheed's strategy to corner the fighter market. Every problem in the program stems directly from there.
Now take your fantasies to proper threads. This one is for F-35.
