A-6 would make the naval strike package open up for many conflicts from Vietnam era too Gulf War.

Maybe an EA add on later.

Isn't the A-6 nearly a foregone conclusion at this stage though?

I'd been treating this thread as a 'what after the Intruder' thread since that A-6 AI reveal. Am I the only one doing this?
