Romney plans (if he wins) to add Carrier Air Wing and continue buying Super Hornets

Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s defense team has some interesting ideas for the future of the US Navy…

My former colleague at Defense News, Chris Cavas–probably the best naval reporter in here in Washington DC–has written up this interview with John Lehman, one of Romney’s chief advisors on defense. Yes, that John Lehman from the Reagan Administration–the architect of the 600-ship Navy.

120820-N-GC639-071.jpgShould Romney win, Lehman says that a potential new administration would create an 11th carrier air wing–one each for the 11 carriers in the fleet. The additional unit would form a fully modernized reserve air wing that could be surged as needed.  Plans would also keep the Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet in production, but would also retain the Lockheed Martin F-35C. The exact mix hasn’t been determined just yet.

A Romney Administration would also continue to add new amphibious assault ship to fill out the US Marine Corps requirement of 39 ships.  So, probably that means more F-35Bs…

One thing though, Lehman didn’t really say how Romney would pay for all this…

Anyways, read it for yourself here.
