    However, we do have an excellent team managing & operating a few fleet of fighter jets. More powerful jets like the f18 wont be necessary - imho - as this is only a tiny island to dash. I believe skill may be more important plus a good ground-to-air defence operation to guard the jetters.
    good pilots are very important, imagine bobo shooters.. just like photography, one must know how to use his equipement well.

    Imagine if one stray shot hits a human.

    I think what are really short of are dedicated Bombers, stealth recon & stealth bombers instead of Multi-role fighters.
    Shld take out the Skyhawks completely and replace it with a dedicated Long Ranged Recon Stealth Bomber based overseas.

    Of cos, having like another 20 Apaches or like 10 Thunderbolts in place of commissioning another 3 or 4 Infantry Battalions would be good too.
    1 Apache/Thunderbolt have an equivalent firepower of almost a full Infantry Battalion. Woot.
    No more skyhawks and hunters already.

    We have also the a multi-rockets launcher that when explode release cluster bombs..

    Not too sure the name of the rocket launcher!

    Not entirely.

    The F-15C/D/Es are due to be in service till 2025.

    Skyhawks are still around as part of the AJT programme in Cazaux, France.

    The rocket system is the M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (Himars). It's not yet in service.

    Don't think all will be stationed in Spore. Maybe half of it and likely to be stationed in tengah.

    Isn't the E2C hawkeye going to be replaced as well?

    The 4 E2Cs are being replaced by 4 Gulfstream 550s (G550-AEW).

    I would use the word supplemented - F22 are never going to replace the F15 at a 1:1 ratio and the difference is going to be filled in part by SLEP F15s and by the F35.
