Report Argues That The F-35 Is Totally Inferior To Foreign Fighters

That’s good to hear. We’ve known things were going badly, but just flat out inferior? Great.

But the evidence against the F-35 continues to pile up. This latest report by researchers Bill French and Daniel Edgren finds that the aircraft is lacking in terms of maneuverability, payload range and stealth, meaning that the “the F-35 is more likely to find itself outmaneuvered, outgunned, out of range, and visible to enemy sensors in contingencies against near-pear militaries.”

The F-35, according to French, fails to match the Russian aircraft MiG-29 Fulcrum and Su-27 Flanker. First, the F-35 is inferior on wing loading. Second, it features lower maximum speeds. In a simulation conducted by the RAND Corporation, more than two F-35s were downed for every Chinese-made Su-35 taken out.
