The 40 year old F-15 is now officially Plan B.
The F-15 was supposed to be replaced by the F-22.
The F-22 was cancelled to spend all the money on the F-35.
The F-35 devoured all the money (and time) BUT still totally sucks.
That brings us back to the 40 year old F-15.
20 years of wasted time and wasted money and we are right back where we started..
The Communist Chinese have moved forward. The Russians have moved forward. The United States is just chasing its tail around and around and around.
Hopefully this 12 Billion dollar band aide will keep the US competitive.
