Some would argue, including my self, it is a valuable asset to have. Especially with an amphibious force such as the Marine Corps and other related amphibious forces around the world.
The marines are the only ones who could really put a use to it. They prove that with the harrier, yet theres not many in service. My main point was, that a fighter with better agility, more payload, or a higher topspeed would be much more useful than the amount of money they put in to the STOVL technology.
