    Propaganda.....none of first three runs can be used in combat,,,only version 4 has complete computer package.....
    Hundreds of F-35s may now never be made combat-ready due to budget constraints | SOFREP

    Yet, the F-35 continues to be purchased. You just can't win no matter what, can you.

    The original model had a Recce RC-135 in the mix. It only had to switch on for a few minutes and then exit. Never coming outside international waters. The Recces played havoc with the Soviets in the early 70s. You might see them but you also might miss something else like a camera ship or a bomber or two.

    You mean the first 103 which were all test birds. They are still being used as either test birds or parts. Certainly not "Hundreds". Just stop making shit up.

    Years, as in a couple of years. War is a long plan when spending billions of dollars. Otherwise, anyone could do it.

    Like I tried to explain but you can't wrap your head around, there is no "this or that" issue but in your own little pea brain. F-15 complements F-35, they have different capabilities. Ordering one doesn't indicate canceling the other.

    Oh yeah, we all notice that you continue to go crickets chirping on addressing the "F-35 to slow" logic fail. That's embarrassing for you ain't it? :D

    Claiming this doesn't help your case in implying since USA hasn't used them they are no good. You're basically arguing against yourself.

    So... you never answered Mr. "I've got the most links"... what about the F-22? How long did they take to use that?

    Every time he puts his toe in this thread he gets made a fool of by contradicting himself and proving himself unable to respond to anything counter to his narrative. It's pretty damn funny.

    Pop quiz... what is the max speed and altitude of an SU-30/35 in combat configuration, specifically while carrying those big Russian "more missiles" that you're talking about?

    You have no idea do you? We know this because you think Russian jets fly in Manonthestreet's magic fantasy land where the combat configured top speed and max altitude is exactly the same as a clean bird with hardly any fuel that would achieve that max speed. F-15 pilot says he can't get past mach 1.8 (versus F-15 stated max mach 2.5) so how do you translate that into SU-30/35 performance?

    To take your foolishness farther, did you know that the overwhelming majority of combat kills in the modern era have been at transonic speed and medium (30kish) altitude? Once you know that (look it up if you don't believe me) why do you think superior max altitude and speed are a panacea in regards to measuring combat effectiveness?

    Manonthestreet = *crickets* chirp chirp....
