Short Legs

Folks have been complaining about the short legs of the F/A-18 since I was a boy scout in a troop full of Viet Nam veteran fathers.

Compounded by the fact that the air wing is ALL F-18s now.  Practically.  I disliked Cheney back before it was cool because he doomed the A-12.

The F-35 is not that much better.

It's like we aren't serious anymore.

Not sure what good a plane with a 650 mile radius is when anti-ship shore defense missiles have 1000+ mile range.

Oh, that's fine. If those anti-ship missiles miss a lot.
