I've just had a brilliant idea!
How about we Brits pull out of the JSF?
If we were to do that, we could upgrade the Harrier fleet, give them a second engine, bigger fuselarge, bigger wings.
We could also upgrade the avionics, nav and weapon packs and that should see us through to the mid 50's.
Other than that, we could purchase Rafael or Hornets. Both are off the shelf and both proven.
That way we could keep our second carrier, create lots of jobs and get the Royal Navy back to sea!
