Well, if the Tomcat is now officially in the pipeline, they must have some kind of agreement with Grumman as we've seen with all of the other 3rd parties, a licensing deal of some sort is pretty much mandatory if you want a full fidelity aircraft.

With my Columbo hat on...

On that assumption, The A-6 Intruder was also made by Grumman and has an A-G radar, and where the F-14 caters for the tastes of the fighter jocks, the A-6 caters for the mud movers hence the 'something for everyone' statement...

Plus... I really just want one
