Blast from the past...A-6E Intruder...

Think about this.

With the F-35C and the Super Hornet, we can't fly as far, can't carry more and move at about the same speed as an airplane designed in the 70's and has been retired for more than 2 decades.

Additionally with the Navy's focus on payloads over platforms you have to ask one serious question.

Did Navy Air leadership of the past get it right when they "necked down"?

Was that entire movement a dead end that has current day consequences?
