Well, this looks pretty nice. But funding will be so limited that the full suite will probably only be in service by 2050, and half of the cool stuff will either be too expensive to implement properly or to develop at all. The Eurofighter was already planned to have the connectivity & cruise missile package.

Also not sure how well the A400 performs as a cruise missile / UAV carrier. Methinks a proper combat aircraft might be better, e. g. have the Eurofighter escort carry them.

Still, pretty.
