Not really. The (often absurd) criticism of the jet over the years has targeted some pretty basic things. I think you'll find this is what ADMk2's tongue in cheek comment was alluding to. As has been said before, a cursory glance over this very thread should give some context.

Again, the 787 does not build any speed, it just goes from ground to vertical takeoff instantly.



And I know the F-35 has come a long way and fixed a lot of issues, trust me I have 100% understanding that at this point the JSF program is too big to fail, and any issues it encounters will be fixed from an unlimited supply of funds.

Yep it was just a dig at the absurd commentary on the F-35 by people who have been clearly shown that they do not know, what they do not know, yet proffer an opinion to the contrary nonetheless.

The F-35 according to every single person who has ever flown it and every service that is going to buy it, has more than acceptable aerodynamic performance and maneuvering qualities for a fighter jet (despite this not being one of it’s ‘real’ strengths as a combat aircraft, it’s combat system, EW and LO capability are far more impressive...) and yet the ridiculous myth persists, that the plant that built the F-16 and F-22 for some reason suddenly no longer understands how to build a fighter jet...

This link is about payload utility and other stuff as it applies to the F-35.

This article is a rather sobering discussion on the status of the F-35, from a sustainment point of view. To be fair, budget constraints are a significant factor. The rising fears about cyber security hopefully result in more money being made available to address this.

This time we see a Vertical then a Shipborne Rolling Vertical Landing in the Warton simulator with UK F-35B test pilot input about the F-35B afterwards.

Germany may be the latest country interested in the F-35

Germany declares preference for F-35 to replace Tornado | Jane's 360

Germany's initial plan was to replace its Tornado's with an unmanned system (Future Combat Air System) and that is still probably their long term goal ... but the realisation that it may take a long time to develop this system means that they may be looking at a nearer term replacement. Something in the 2025 - 35 timeframe.

If it is looking for an aircraft type that is currently available there wouldn't seem to be too many options apart from the F-35.

Could be a big order if the German's choose to replace their entire Tornado fleet.

The Germans will also be able to leverage the experience and efforts to integrate the F-35 with legacy Typhoon fleets in the UK and Italy. The F-35 should be a shoo-in given it's increasing affordability and technological superiority.

Was Just watching "Defence and Aerospace" and a video on US/UAE business council discussing how it would be advantageous to the USA it would be, if the United Arab Emirates was given permission to purchase the JSF..

Defence Aerospace has an interesting report on the vulnerability of undersea telecommunications cables and the impact on the F35 that has not been discussed here before.

Undersea Cables: Indispensable, Insecure

The last paragraph of the article details the issue.

Remember the KISS principle.

Not sure how big a deal this is relative to the F-35. I would like to think there is enough SATCOM capacity to handle ALIS files if all ocean cables were cut which I think is unlikely. I have found Defense-Aerospace to be very negatively biased towards the F-35 and often use POGO as there source for anti F-35 info.

Old Giovanni’s (editor of defence-aerospace) meal ticket is Dassault and European defence industry more broadly. The F-35 is the biggest threat to European fighters there is and so in order to keep his $$$ inbound he targets it with the most ridiculous of claims there are...
