This thread seems to have been 404ed


That is a lot of money. Seems like there have been a lot of orders for fighter jets all over the place lately.

The US fleet at the moment is mainly consisted of very aging fighters and strike aircraft.They were in a position where they had to update to a newer generation of aircraft..

That's a # pile of hot lunches for schoolkids.......
Do we really need to spend on arms like a drunken sailor?
I think the services should concentrate on force multiplying technology....
I know it can be argued the F35 IS a great multiplyer....
In reality the more expensive the fewer well have....Im thinking once # happens well be losing a lot with every downed aircraft....
Cheaper sacrificial IA piloted companions would be an ideal solution....
The F35 can standoff then, and send in the drones....
