Its to the F-22 what the F-16 was to the F-15. Except of course, it doesn't cost too much less!

This will be the USAF's workhorse light tactical fighter and will be offered for export where the F-22 will not.

You need both, the Hi-Lo mix has worked for decades, no point in messing with it now. The F-35 is more versatile and will offer great strike capability as well serve three branches and a boatload of countries.

Im not sure what fighters cockpit this is but i sure that its not the f-35 because the f-35 does not have a HUD. All of the F-35's Information that would go on the HUD goes into a special helment that the Pilot wheres

The F-35 is not more versitile infact the f-22 would fly circles around the f-35. The f-22 is the most advanced Plane around. and why would you want us to send Our Fighter jets to other countries?

While I do not have enough knowledge of the F35 itself to argue that point. I know Jon S Beesley personally, and worked very closely with him for over a year and a half, and still do work with him occasionally, I must say that Jon is not the kind of man to lie about what he thinks. He is very honest and open about everything, excluding the classified stuff he still will not talk about.
He is very diplomatic, and will often avoid negatives, he rarely takes the credit he deserves for much of what he does, while instead trying to prop up those around him.

He is a great man, and anything he says I take at face value.

Wasn't sure where to drop this, and I don't think it needs its own thread. This'll do since it was bumped recently.
