Re: They hate the infantry

F18s need cats 'n' traps. The carriers weren't designed for that. A mistake I think.

However planes you use that way don't last as long as VSTOL. The airframes get knackered much earlier. So you may get cheaper ones, but have to buy them twice.

I don't agree with the MOD's decisions. But they aren't actually stupid. Thought has gone into them.
