Figured that bike riders = people liking fast things = jet fighters, so i thought i'd ask. I know virtually nothing about these things, but is the superhornet the right way to go for Australia? Or even the JSF, which seems to be taking a lot of our money for little return so far. It's a shame the F-111's can't soldier on, but from what little I know, the superhornet can't really be compared to the ground hugging pig, and it's a bit odd we're looking at it as a replacement. As a sidenote, it's pretty interesting watching a mini-arms race develop in our little corner of the world. The Indo's get promised the T-90 and next thing, wham, we're replacing the AS-1 Leopard with the Abrahms. So... for the people that know better - what should we be doing? Go with the Superhornet as a stop-gap? Will it compare to the latest generation Mig and Su fighter/bombers that we'll be seeing in the region soon? And should we go with the JSF, or something like a SAAB?
