With the ability to launch a lot of aircraft off quickly, The marines would have like 12 F-35's usually, so how do you carry enough weaponry to take down the air cover and take out the cvn? That's where I see them having problems, at most you have 48 amramms, but then no strike capability. I just don't see the F-35B being able to bring enough weaponry to that big of a fight, unless this is a maxed out amphib which would have like 20-24 F-35B's then it would at least become possible.


You don't have to do everything at once, and not everything has to be done within a few hours. Obviously this is a silly scenario of USN vs USMC since USMC assets in real life are protected by USN assets.

Once a few planes get shot down in your formation from missiles and planes you can't see, most will scrap the mission and try to live and fight another day.
