Its only meant to be an example - a UCAV pentrating a defence deemed too risky for a manned mission.

Whether the VLO state of the F-117 (in comparison to the B-2) allows such missions to be anyway viable or not is another question.

I know exactally what you meant! I was only pointing out that your chosen example was not a good one for this argument, because the Rick with NK has nothing to do with UAV vs. Manned missions.

Saw a show recently about the JSF and they suggested that this design would still be valid in 2050. Had to laugh. As if they knew where we'd be in 45 years with regard to airflight. If advances are as quick as they have been, you have to wonder why they're still flying U-2s for recon.
