The long running story of FoF has never been quite documented.

A problem in the Gulf (hence clearly segregated missions?).

By the time ex-Yugo came around, the US rqrmnt had grown to a 300 km radius, and I remember reading (from the RHS column in the spreadsheets attached to the NAO reports, ohh those were the days when one could actually find some info) that there simply wasn't space for kit capable of that.
- no wonder so many things are pod'ded for ease of fit (can come at the cost of angle of regard; like the USN IRS)
Ever-lasting truths: Multi-year budgets/ planning by necessity have to address the painful questions; more often than not the Either-Or prevails over Both-And.
