Im not sure if the aetp would have been able to have been completed in the relevant timeframe. US is retiring a huge amount of their refuelling force.Disappointed the aetp isn't going ahead for the f-35. 20 to 30 percent more range would have been significant. Perhaps Aukus gives us a door into NGAD unlike the f22.
B21 will likely be based here, just not in RAAF colours.
