Arianespace Adeline as a SSME/EELV recovery system

Air Force RFP for engine and launch vehicle requires any system developed be available to all users so an American Ariane with a Adeline as a SSME/EELV recovery system would have to be manufactured here in the United States.Manufacturing a Vulcan engine assembly sounds expensive and the 16 SSME’s already exists.

Arianespace would be using an american reusable engine to launch national security payloads from California and Florida.The Launcher could be manufactured in Mobile Alabama  but I would suggest a factory along the great lakes to attract the needed attention from a new state’s congressional delegation

Ariane 7

This Ariane 7 would need SRB’s and these would need to be American made as well or there would need to be a Ariane 7 Heavy with three cores.

This idea requires that the Air Force order RS-25’s and swaps them for SSME’s with NASA as suggested here;     https://yellowdragonblog.com/2015/06/17/synergism-with-an-air-force-and-nasa-methane-gell-rs-25/
