V-22/ C-2A; 20/10K lbs; 879/1300 nm; 241/251 kts; 25/33.5K ft; (Cargo LxWxH ft) 24/27, 5.9/6.9, 6/5.2; Allison AE 1107C/ Allison T56-A-425 . The Osprey can be fitted with an aerial refueling probe to provide in-flight refueling. The AE 1107C is being considered for upgrades to the CH-47 and CH-53... Now, can the F-135 fit in these dimensions. There is a little "fiddling room" in the V-22 but the engine will be in a frame and not in a container, if it'll fit "at all".
And, of course, STOVL,versatility.
