Intended to be a cheaper, less versatile successor to the F35 Lightning II, the F37 Thunderclap was envisioned as mainly a highly marketable export. However, it overshot expectations, and became a major player for the US Airforce and Marines, as well as the armies of many rich countries around the world. It was later replaced by the F41 Hailstorm in its fighter bomber role, and later at the close of the 21st century, by the F42 Wildfire in all roles.
