I hear that a two seat version of the Typhoon, based on the current T1 airframe, is being looked into as a strike aircraft and 'UCAV Leader' whatever that means. Any takers?

Oh this sounds interesting!
The UCAV leader IMO probably will be the pilot flying the plane and the second one controlling a squadron of UCAV's flying with the typhoon.

I would assume defense is my only motive.

One thing for certain, I would buy at least 400-500 upgraded F16's. Still to this day one of the most capable planes in the air. Unrivaled as a dog fighter and an excelent air to ground bomber. Great defensive plane.

Now, I would also need to assume that an attacking power would use long range type aircraft against me. So I would need a compliment of "air superiority" type fighters with long range missiles. Not 100's of them, but maybe a 100 or so. The issue here is getting a seller to pony some up. I would look into Mig 29's if the US wouldnt sell me any F22's. Maybe some upgraded F15e's.

As good as the F16 is as a bomber, I would want some close air support as well. A 100 or so A10's would do the trick nicely. Again, I am assuming I need to deffend myself against an invading force. Nothing like a few straffing runs with that gat to send a message to two. Throw a couple F15e's above them for support and you have quite a set up.

Maybe a dozen AC-130 gunships for a little extra "kick"

Lastly support aircraft. AWACS, refuelers, Jammers (modoified intruders or such), and lifters.

I think an arrangement like this would deffend a middle sized country very well. At the very least you could deffend yourself very handedly against all but the superpowers.
