"... "promises" sounds like weasel words." Has the MQ-25A flown yet? 'Promises' seems very appropriate for the FUTURE.

What ever happened to the concept of standoff delivery? I don't think we have to get the F-35C to 1,000 nm just to be a credible threat. Add in standoff missiles for 1,000 nm more. That's 1,150 regular miles on each of two legs. That's a lot of territory to defend. Too bad they never leveraged AGM-109 for the navy, huh? Oh, wait.
