If you are selling Eurofighter Typhoons and Sea Eagle missiles to places
like Saudi Arabia it might be a good idea to be able to defend against
that level of capability with some confidence in the future. Let alone
fifth generation fighters and modern low observable missiles or older
missiles like Kh-15 reaching hypersonic.
The capability is out there in the real world. If it's not Saudi Arabia it will be someone with similar stuff - or better.
They all use Europeans to maintain them.
Just keep most of the spares in Europe and fly them out when necessary and their serviceability will be measured in days after their support operation ceases.
Even if it were true, what if they mission kill your single strike
carrier and LPH in the first couple of days?
What might be needed are a somewhat large number of cheap to build and
operate warships that are reasonable upgradeable, in case you have to
fight Evilstan, and can do missions like hunting drug smugglers in the
Caribbean, so you don't have to commit LPH, AAW, ASW or replenishment
I think that's what I said.
That's unexpected ;)
