China will build a better mouse trap.
Shut the f35s wifi off, thanks Huawei.

These f35 Flying Duds are failing across the board.
$40,000.00U.S. per hour operating costs, constant failures and untreated problems, secret hidden screw ups, this baby is a dud dud dud.
Keep away.

The Americans may have the same problem as this new generation of aircraft is so expensive, they are drastically reducing the numbers of fighters they fly. BTW, they are NOT flying single engine interceptors out of Alaska and it is still "up in the air" whether the F-35 will even be used for interception at all.

It's a great plane for a Marine assault ship.

Been there, done that.

Nuclear warheads, detonated overhead in Canada to save American cities ...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CIM-10_Bomarc

Did that for a decade and some. Nothing new, there.

All the bidders should have a plane for everyone to compare, The US should allow us to have a few Raptors in our arsenal.

Considering that the Raptor is, sadly, dangerous, underperforming, hideously costly, buggy to the point of insanity, and both a hangar queen and a money pit, I'm surprised Donny Dodger hasn't sold you a couple dozen.

I hear he's got some F-52s he'd be willing to sell you. How 'bout it?

The Marines seem to like them. The US Navy is going "Hmmmm" and the USAF is wishing that they had built more F-22s.

Yeah, based on the fact they don't fly them, never did, and were never planned to.

The U.S. Navy is, as always, going "Duhhhh." And given that you can't fly a Raptor off a carrier, that's actually sort of understandable.

The AF always did have a thing for cool paperweights.

The Russians are not so stupid. They produce aircraft that are not quite as sexy but are tough, reliable and maintainable in rough circumstances and they are quite capable of emptying out the skies over a NATO that is armed with some dozens of those flimsy thoroughbreds.




While I agree that a pilot flying out over the Beaufort Sea



would DEFINITELY WANT TWIN ENGINES.........................


and I have mentioned this choice before................................


I HAVE ALSO POINTED OUT that a fighter aircraft IS A TOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


DESIGNED FOR A SPECIFIC TASK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


One size DOES NOT FIT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



You CAN drive screws with a chisel....................................


or pare away wood with a screw driver.................................


but it is NOT an efficient use of tools!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The f 35 is an "air superiority" machine................................


designed to fly relatively safely into SERIOUS AIR DEFENSES................................


such as those existing in Syria....................................


masses of Russian and Iranian missiles....................................


masses of Russian radars.......................................


all working together to make Syrian air space lethal for conventional air craft!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Which IS WHY the Israelis USED F35`s in their recent Syrian raids.............................................


and defenders on the ground never even got a good look at the F35`s that attacked them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


For more routine bombing missions.......................................


such as the NATO bombing campaign in Kosovo...........................................


that RCAF COULD NOT PARTICIPATE IN due to its ANTIQUE equipment.........................................


or the Coalition bombing campaign against Isis that Canada REFUSED to participate in.............................


because Our idiot Boy Justin is a SOVIET ASSHAT- also know as a "USEFUL IDIOT"............................................ ..


in campaigns like this.........................................


or for chasing down Soviet long range bombers prowling the CDN ARCTIC............................................


then a craft like the F18 super hornet is FINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



The SAD REALITY is that Our idiot BOY is dedicated to the SAME INSANE DREAM as his vile father Pierre!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


the Trudeau clan have this magical idea that Canada can be made safer and happier......................................


IF WE SIMPLY SURRENDER to any enemy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The Trudeau clan wants DISARM CANADA............................................ .


SCORN NATO and the Yankees........................................... .........


and JOIN a third world alliance against the west!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !


This is a big part of the reason why LIE-berals want to bring as many illegals as possible into Canada!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals are building up a political and ethnic class that supports LIE-beral policy..........................................


and DESPISES THE WEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !


LIE-beral values ARE A CANCER POISONING OUR COUNTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!

The Norway F-52 statement made me chuckle, I didn't realise the Raptor was having such problems, too bad the fastest interceptor out there

UH HUH..........................................


And hey NUT ZONE DOUG...........................................


if the F 35`s are such colossal DUDS.........................................


then WHY ARE SO MANY ANTI YANKEES frantically trying to get the F 35 CANCELLED????????????????????


Could it be for the SAME REASON they argued so HARD AGAINST the Star Wars missile defense system????????????????????



Dont you just HATE IT when Yankees turn out to be SMARTER than their enemies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And here is a FUN QUESTION.......................................... .........


Both Nut Zone Doug and MHz have warned us about Russian and Chinese hypersonic missiles.......................................... ...


but just what is to prevent Yankees from making some hyper missiles of their own?????????????????????????


How come we have not heard about any such Yankee effort???????????????????????????????


Or do they already have something BETTER in the wings?????????????????????????????????


Should we ask if "The Skunk Works" closed down after producing the F 117?????????????????????????



HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They tried to implement too many cutting-edge ideas in one platform.

"Hyper Sonic" ... "really big noise".

Missiles can only fly "hypersonic" very high up in the atmosphere, as they get red hot flying fast in the dense atmosphere down here near sea level. So much for stealth, having to fly an arc up to 30,000 feet. You would see it immediately and by the time it re-enters and slows down, so that it can fly at sea level, everybody in Christendom knows exactly where it is and where it's going. It will still be supersonic but it will have long since unzipped it's fly and it will be travelling too fast to track any course changes made by the target vessel.

What a waste of time and money.

Obviously good propaganda value, though!

There's a whole list of reasons why most anti-ship missiles are sub-sonic. They can change course mid-flight, for one.

Still, ever notice how tough some guys get when their service-eligible days are behind them?

They grow a backbone, and the yellow on their bellies fades until you can just barely see it.

They're the true heroes.

Yep, because that's what tough-guy heroes do.

Their role model is Marion Morrison, aka John Wayne, who couldn't be bothered to put on a uniform in the middle of World War II, unless it was to pretend to be a man for the cameras.

What about the all weather bi-wing drone. When it stops signaling the enemy is around, like the one the US sent into Iranian space.

There were others ... Ronald Reagan was another.

Eisenhower, on the other hand, was careful about not putting his young men in harm's way for no good reason.
