Indeed. Admittedly I am still skeptical that the US will be able to turn NGAD into a working capability by early next decade as planned, but if they succeed then having to choose between that and a Block V F35A strikes me as a good problem to have.OT
If NGAD proves to be a significant advance then waiting might be an option. In Canada’s case I just hope junior doesn’t use this as an excuse to derail our fighter replacement. With an election looming possibly this fall I can’t see a fighter selection now that would become a hot-bottom issue. Afterwards, who knows.
