Yea I don't suppose you have a citation on that one? Closest I've heard of is the America's Army series, and they're pretty open about that being a recruiting/education tool.
However, Boeing has pulled the Delta IV from the market, so there will be a limited number of these launched in the future.
Got a citation on that? Last I heard there was no definitive plan to end the Delta IV program, in fact it would be insane considering Atlas' precarious engine situation.
No, it isnt.
Well can't argue with that, I'm convinced.
