The Bunker Group
Given the cost to upgrade earlier additions of the F-35, and if the UK were to decide to go with an all "B" fleet, used F-35As may be appealing to some nations. I think political opposition on buying used F-35As for Canada from the UK would be immense given the Upholder purchase. Combine that with the eventual public awakening of what a complete waste of money the purchase of well used classic Hornets is, I'd say it's either new F-35As or new something else. Must admit the flexibility of the "B" is very appealing, especially now that price has descended from the the stratosphere.
