Which 3rd party would pay for it? It would certainly involve a fair share more work and money than the Block 60.LowObservable said:Ditto to Jeb.
Not only could the AF have obtained a SuperViper, but a third party would have paid for it. But the AF/OSD leaders regarded it as an alternative/competitor to "real stealth" which was being promised at an unbelievably low cost and rapid schedule.
At least they got the "unbelievable" bit right.
Even if the USAF got Falcon 21s or something similar it would be a short-term fix. They'd still need something beyond that which would inevitably be pretty expensive to develop.
