As for the upcoming f-35, I hear it's tearing into piece during routing testing: www.abovetopsecret.com...
Yes it's a small problem that an extra few billions can handle.
You can always count on Zaphod to give you the goods on aircraft.
But Zaphod made a point on a different thread.
That we are in to far now. And we must get the F-35 up to par. There are to many new threats out there. That F-35 was designed to handle.
It's not just the aircraft itself we need. But more for its computer programs...Avionics that are needed.
They have been improving the F-35 slowly but it is coming along for a hefty price.
It is paramount that F-35 be fully functional..and fast.
Zaphod also pointed out that The A-10 will not go away just yet. And congress did uphold those actions 2 weeks ago.
I'm crossing my fingers and hoping the A-10 is spared for a while longer.
