The future looks pretty good compared to their 'ideal' setup from the 80's. With the range of block 3 hornets only the F-14 and A-7's can match or exceed them, so that complement of 90 aircraft suddenly drops to just 3 squadrons of attack A/C (and only one of them are strike A/C)

Killing the F-14 program to further the F-18 program was the mistake, and Dick Cheney made that call because the Hornet was cheaper.

Reactivating Viking's is the only halfway sensible thing I have seen from 'range and raw airframe numbers' advocates.
