Re: @bri

The Swedish people understood this, they designed the Gripen, a design focused to work properly in expeditionary circumstances, eg hot and sandy climates, and from short mediocre runways. Carrying self defense rockets, and enough fuel and standoff weapons for fighting against insurgents etc. A navalised version would have been more then adequate for the marines. That doesn't need air conditioned hangars, or complicated databases to order parts.
