Default Australia's first two advanced fighter jets delivered

Going to be interesting to see just how much the f-35 maintenance cost will end up....

Got to be quite a bit more than the F/A-18.

Joint strike fighters jet into Australia

Damn, I bet with that coating defect it will only be 1/500th of the RCS of a Rafale instead of 1/1000th.

Given effectiveness and utilization the Mi-35 would have been better, even in peace time transporting fire filters and equipment, water etc and formidable when needed.
