Asterix is costing $691M for the capability over the 6 or so years, and it's just a lease so we don't own it. It does a good job at what it does but it does cost a lot more with less capability than JSS will deliver.Seriously? You're adding a decade and a billion dollars for Military Standards? The Asterix and Obelix would meet 95% of your requirements and if nothing else would save your Prima Donnas of the fleet for when they are, in your view, absolutely necessary and the merchant ships you are escorting just won't do.
