No assault is handled by one trip.  No doubt various sorties will be made to 
handle various threats in ways that aid deploying additional forces.  As in, 
stealth in to defeat 3C, making it less problematic to have an increased 
radar signature.  The upside being not having to keep multiple types of 
aircraft at the ready, instead utilizing one in multiple roles.

It's a bit ridiculous seeing you armchair generals might fantasize all 
manner of scenarios that support your pointless arguing.  Give it a rest.
