No airborn stealth without visible protection ?!?
“If we don’t keep F-22 Raptor viable, the F-35 fleet will be irrelevant” Air Combat Command says
To be precise all of 1,763 (“not one less”) F-35s
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: TO be honest, I have been always doubtful. :) Oh yeah, why ?
Because you have to see your powerful enemy to be scared to death. Hehehehehe.
The F-35C takes 43 seconds longer than an F-16 to accelerate from Mach 0.8 to Mach 1.2.
The F-35B and F-35C use almost all of their internal fuel before being able to achieve their maximum speed of Mach 1.6.
