Just personal complained,nothing more.

 

Oh OK, I thought you were trying to say that JDAMs were solely offensive weapons, however they do have many uses in the defense of your homeland.

 

I have personally used JDAM strikes real world while in an defensive posture.

They took delivery of another KC-767 this week also. Watched it take off from the Boeing plant here and head West.

Looks like wing and tailplanes are optimized more for subsonic lift rather than supersonic drag... admintting that the F-18's straighter wing was the better way to go rather than stressing Mach 2 performance.

You're basically right...

 

IIRC, the F-2 was mostly a way to keep the industry up to speed, and his main duty would be anti-shipping and CAS (at least they replaced primarily the F-1 units and the F-4 units with this role first), with air defense coming only second, the F-15 assuming the air superiority role.

So, going for subsonic lift rather than supersonic drag makes it better at his first duty, allowing more payload, farther, at the cost of raw supersonic performance, of little use in his primary mission, a similar compromise to the F/A-18 indeed.
