* Boeing worked freaking hard on the J-UCAS. DICE was a masterclass in engineering. The Phantom Ray was a dream to run a hand over and in the air was peerless.

Had she gotten to the full production stage, the USAF and USN would have had a capability to really rock the IAD world. All aspect VVLO right out the gate and...

USN stomped all over it. Actually, they seemingly decided to let it all slip through their fingers like sand. Wasted effort, wasted capability (And people wonder why Boeing went to Australia to produce the Loyal Wingman.)***

*** Pentagon cannot do a damned thing to can that beast. And I am all the happier for it.
