B777LR:
How about using C-27Js as carrier onboard delivery plane? A C-130 could land on a carrier, so why not? Or perhaps that CASA C-235?

Archibald:
Use a C-295 (longer variant). Brilliant idea!
Mine was to use a Bizjet as COD... can you imagine a Falcon, Learjet or Gulfstream onboard Nimitz ?  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:  

B777LR:
Learjet with extended wingtips and afterburners? Afterall, dont forget, learjet was originally designed as a strike fighter ;)

Not quite. Lear borrowed the wing design from the FFA P-16, and designed the first Learjet (type 23) around it. That wing was used for the 23, 24 and 25. Only the 25 is still in production, it seems. Later Lear designs use a different wing.

Yup, but lear-25s could be used on carriers carrying LGBs, ASMs, ECMs, torpedoes or refueling gear ;)   and how about a mini awacs based on the learjet? Or a tanker?

A competitor to Scaled Composites Space Ship 2, is based on the Learjet 25. It has a rocket engine in the aft cabin.......
