Almost all of you have doubled some aircraft.

Example: If you buy Rafale you probably won't buy EF2000.
It's not good because of additional expenses.

it's a fantasy airforce, i thought it'd be cool to just have similar amazing planes in the same airforce. if i wanted to just eliminate the redundancy then i'd have 2 or 3 multirole aircraft and nothing else. i didn't realize there was a budget involved.

You can have what ever you want, there are no budgets involved!

well it seems to be working fine for the RAF the now.
if your talking about the EF's aditional development costs well it is fully developed the now.

What seems to be working well for the RAF? Rafale?

Or the Tornado/EF combo?

If it's the latter, I think it's because Tornado can't be phased out just quite.
And that's normal, having a new aircraft gradually replace the older one.
What isn't normal is that you buy two different types of new aircraft with similar capabilities.

i think i would keep the A-10 and add the F35 as the A-10 is a bit better at supporting ground troops whereas the f-35 is more multi-functional.
