Bulk/dimensions might be another issue though. A maritime strike version of the EX might end up using fewer pylons when carrying a strike package of JASSMs. Any F-15 pilots about?
    JASSM is a USAF project.

    Navy has the LRASM that is comparable in weight and a F-18 E/F can carry 4 of those

    F-15Es can carry 5 JASSMs

    With the invasion of Ukraine, the thought that Canada should buy a cheap fighter because it really only needs an air interception platform is dead, no? I don't see how the government can not buy the F-35 at this point.
