They’ll be able to replace them with a five year margin, rather than all doing the exact same thing. A lunge. Boeing will purchase 45 Super Hornets, 15 of which will be from electronic warfare and attack versions of the EA-18G Growler.
According to the DPA agency, Christine Lambrecht, the new Defense Minister has committed to conducting research Evaluate the F-35A’s capability to carry out the Tornado nuclear mission.
