Breaking News.......The F-35 Still sucks.
It sucks this year. It sucked last year. It sucked the year before last year. It sucked the year before that year.
The F-35........Guaranteed to ALWAYS suck.
“If you go back over the entire history of the F-35 there is no question that over that history it’s taken longer and it has cost more money than originally anticipated but that is part and parcel of a development program,” she said.
(IT HAS TAKEN LONGER.......AND COST MORE.......AND IT STILL SUCKS..........IT IS NOT PART AND PARCEL OF A DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM. NO PROGRAM IN HISTORY HAS COST MORE THAN THE F-35. THE F-35 STANDS ALONE ON THE SUMMIT OF WASTED TAX PAYER MONEY.)
While James said she wouldn’t be “at all surprised to see it deployed somewhere in the world over the next year or so

These include capabilities to process warnings of enemy ground and airborne radar signals that spot the fighter, to track moving targets on the ground, to share imagery between aircraft and to make use of the new Small Diameter Bomb.
(SO PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING THAT IS NEEDED TO DO THE PLANE CAN'T DO.)
In addition, all three models of the F-35 are “are at risk of not having a functioning and accurate gun” in time for the combat testing because “significant deficiencies discovered during initial testing”
