Default Turkish Planes and Missiles

We've warned Turkey officially now that if they take delivery of S400 systems, we will not send them any of the F35 they ordered.

They've contracted for 100 of them so far.

The UK and NATO have also expressed concern that trying to integrate the S400 into their systems would be impossible.

I tried to find an appropriate thread, but I don't see one.

They know the F-35 is a POS and the S400 is just what the doctor ordered to get out of that rotten deal.

I see the ($100,000,000.00 each) F-35 program as one of the largest mistakes ever made in the aerospace industry as a whole.

The F35 doesn't make sense for any country other than the US.

At least here it was a very successful jobs program first and a crappy weapons system second.

At some point heads will roll and the Tower will fill because of revelations over the unwise U.K. investment in the F35 programmes.

Very late in the projects, even after construction had started, they still debated whether the Elizabeth class ships should be redesigned to handle the Typhoon instead of the F35.

Typhoon is not an aircraft made for a carrier either

I used to think the F35 was a piece of ****. Then I realized it was propaganda.

It’s not fair to write it off completely as a piece of ****, but it is a problem child and it’s being forced down the throat of quite a few communities within the military.

Im still incredibly indifferent to the AF planning to guy the A10 program to facilitate it.

We got a briefing last year about how it can 100% fill the gaps in the CAS role that would be left if the A10 was retired and could fully replace the B1 as well. Yeah, let me know when it can fly in to a country at 1000 knots 50 feet off the ground carrying 70k of munitions.

No, not really. They could've got it to work, but at greater expense than could be allowed.

I'm not exactly on the anti-F35 bandwagon; however, it's probably true that the majority of countries buying it could've and maybe should've used something else.
