The US Navy does not want the Joint Strike Fighter. The US Navy views single engine aircraft as less safe flying over water then twin engine aircraft. The US Navy is buying as many Super Hornet F/A-18 as Congress permits to the US Navy to buy. The US Navy plans to fly as few as possible of the Joint Strike Fighter. The US Navy is planning on putting off requesting any Joint Strike Fighers until Super Hornet F/A-18 start to become unsafe to fly.
