It was then decided that such a plane, minus the lift system, would serve as a replacement for the Viper so the AF was brought in and the program was re-christened CALF. By the end of '94 JAST absorbed CALF to include a Hornet replacement for both the Marines and Navy. So, depending on how you want to read it, either is correct. It all seemed to start with a replacement for the Harrier though.

good reading starts here.

I think it's even accurate to say that Lockheed got the ball rolling by shopping around the idea that there could be Air Force and Marine versions of the same aircraft.
Einstein got it backward: one cannot prevent a war without preparing for it.

Oh excellent. The text from my link is there verbatim but your link is an easier to read format for setting how the programs fit together.
