I would strongly maintain that a large fleet of pure interceptors would be a waste of our manufacturing capabilities. With no aggressive nations on our continental borders I believe that the greater range and versatility offered by multi-role fighters would be more useful in the long run for both defensive and offensive air actions.

For that precise reason that we do not have any aggression on our borders that I prefer having constructing wings of interceptors, purely for defensive purposes. This is something I advocate for the near future, once we have bolstered our air defenses we can focus on our offensive aerial capabilities such as tactical bombers and multi-role fighters. Perhaps within the next two years.
