As I understand the long-term DOD vision, they are looking for ways to eliminate foreign bases without losing the ability to put boots on the ground anywhere quickly. If this idea maintains global rapid-response while eliminating the need for foreign bases, the cost saved would be enormous. Similarly, they have hypersonic drones in the pipeline for deployment in the next few years that may make overseas air bases unnecessary for rapid air stikes.
