Asturias, a reasonable point, but a more flexible aircraft, opposed to lesser capable aircraft would be a better description; but either should be cheaper than … .

Whilst the lesser capable option might be able to carry most of the new weapons and defensive aids, these will add cost; the major driver is situation and context.
In the F35 instance, the RAF might be better off, but the Navy appears to be running the ‘ship’.
