Default F-35 in reality

http://www.pogo.org/straus/issues/we...-in-sight.html

What a dismal outlook for such a poor functioning aircraft. Where did all that money go? Who wants to fly it into real combat?

And this is supposed to REPLACE the A-10? *** funny! ***

OH BOY, HERE WE GO!

But yes, soldiering on with an aircraft that's being frankensteined into airworthiness is such a preferable outcome. I can't wait to see the Sprey posts!

Imho, the F-35 looks and performs like a fat l’il gerbil.

Or maybe we should call it a “piggy”...as in, it’s just a lot of PORK for a certain branch of USG and their b’loved constituents.

CDI at POGO, no bias there at all, no way lol...Using a source document specifically outlined as a testing report giving transparency, as fact of failure of a program and declaring victory over the testing as if it is some huge political statement or "bucking the military industrial complex that gouges taxpayers"...yep, no bias at all. Guess it should be reminded these problems are being identified and addressed outside of combat mostly in testing or minimal service usage, unlike many of the "great" warplanes that tended to require costly retrofitting/re-engineering at the deficit of lives during war and explained as "lessons learned"...btw pray tell, who has a fifth gen. multirole fighter in numbers with 0 problems, 0 budget issues, and lacking petty political squabbling and speculation based on testing information being publicly released? Yea, crickets...Will take an F-35 overhead any day in the CAS role. But what do I know really?

I am just a grunt.

I saw the F-35 at an airshow recently... It looked pretty capable and was actually a lot smaller than I expected. I also got the impression that it has a whole BOATLOAD more power than most people think.

M1Combat, you also didn't likely even see it in the "3F" configuration with the max G and other power/maneuverability restrictions still in place. Some deployed F35s over in the Pacific/Japan recently got the 3F, there have been some F15 pilots posting about fighting it in a2a practice fights on the net if you search around the defense journals/websites.
