Just give the Navy like 20 and procure 80 A versions instead.



You mean give the Italian Navy 30 F-35B's.....with the remaining F-35A's going to the Air Force! :wink:

Also, when the Navy F-35B's are not deployed at sea. Nothing says that can't operate within a land-based role. Which, is hardly uncommon in the first place........
