It basically shows that it would be cheaper for the US NAVY to buy F35A's iso F35C and have money left to buy an equal number of NG SHornets.
kbrockman, the A isn't carrier capable. There is no point in the Navy buying the A's. At all.
There was in fact no reason for the USAF to ever buy A's, as this was supposed to be a JOINT strike fighter. You can fly C's from carrier or land base, but the same can't be said of the A.
