Ironically TARPS was originally intended as a stopgap until the F/A-18(R) could be brought into service. Even more ironically, the F/A-18D(RC) was meant to supplement TARPS equipped F-14s, not replace them. Which means at the moment the USN has currently a big capability gap (would it be that it was the only one...).
