    Cmdr. Patrick Baker, executive officer of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 213, told reporters that his F/A-18F Super Hornet squadron had seen “almost seamless operations with the French Rafales and Hawkeyes onboard. … One of the things I’ve taken away from this is, if there ever is an opportunity or a situation that develops, the French do bring a unique, complementary capability to a U.S. carrier air wing that could definitely assist us in strengthening our regional and our maritime capability.”

    VF-31. They had the name Tomcatters before the F-14.

    Still funny to see SPAD flying faster than RAfale. Would trigger some heart attacks on F16.net (e.G. that portuguese kid...)

    Joint US/French Operation:

    The relationships being built during this exercise will matter when it comes time to operate together in combat conditions,” said Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson while onboard the Bush on May 14 with his French counterpart, Adm. Christophe Prazuck.
    “So we’re proud to be operating side-by-side with our French allies as we deepen our interoperability.
    “As described in the National Defense Strategy, we’ll need combined training like this to become habitual so that we are prepared to compete and win in this new era of great power competition.”
    There could be more international training and experimentation going on off the U.S. East Coast in September, when the newest British aircraft carrier, the HMS Queen Elizabeth expected to arrive to conduct her first F-35B Joint Strike Fighter VTOL operations, U.S. Navy sources tell Navy Times
    Imagine if we had some F-35B too on a modernized class of Garibaldi carrier to protect the outremer territories and contribute to mass effect in near peer situation by embarking on RN or USMC bigger carrier.

    It wouldn't escape any attentive reader that this had to be written on Pentecost day

    F-35 (and furthermore B) cou:d fill as a specific niche. Much depends on FCAS DP progress i guess.
