If You Squeeze It You Get Lemon Juice: The F35 Fiasco Continues - Trillion Dollar F-35s Can Barely Get Off The Ground!

I have put out many reports at this blog over the last while about the massive failings of the Lougheed Martin F35 "Lightning II" fighter aircraft program for I see it as one of the most colossal wastes of money in all of history.... I have called this thing a "lemon" from the very beginning, and I have not found any thing at all that has changed that perspective....

Well, it seems that more reports are now coming out at a frantic pace these days that talk about the failings of this TRILLION dollar boondoggle, and for this report, I found a real good one to share with my own readers... For according to the following report from the Patriot Rising website, at www.patriotrising.com, apparently the F35 is so bad that it can barely get off  the ground!   Here is the link to that report for everyone to take a look at for themselves, and I have more thoughts and comments to follow:

NTS Notes: Nothing about this horrific aircraft shocks me any more.... So far the list of what we know is bad about this aircraft includes:

(a) Its VTOL engine is a horrific gas guzzling monstrosity that adds so much weight to the aircraft that it can barely maneuver, flies atrociously too slow, and cannot stay in any "combat" situation for very long due to fuel constraints....

(b) Because of its stubby wings, it cannot maneuver in any dogfight and is a sitting duck... Simulated combat exercises conducted a few years back showed that the F35 would be basically blown out of the sky in ANY combat against modern Russian or Chinese fighter aircraft.

(c) It carries a pitiful amount of armaments (at most 4 missiles in its fuselage) and until recently was designed to not even have a gun for it to fight in any dogfight!  Having no gun and trying to depend only on missiles proved to be a major problem with the F4 Phantoms in the Vietnam War, but was quickly corrected by giving the Phantom a gun.... Why the US military has failed to heed the lessons of history here is anyone's guess!

(d) It was discovered early on that it could not fly properly at night and was quickly discovered to be damaged in any rainstorm!

(e) Its "Stealth" is a fraud... Many people do not understand that Russian radar can see the damn thing clearly, and "Stealth" itself was exposed as a massive fraud in the Kosovo/Bosnian war of 1999 when "stealth" F117A aircraft were clearly seen by Yugoslav Russian built radar systems and were blown out of the sky.... Stealth is and always has been a money making sham and a massive lie.....

(f) Its onboard computer system is proving to be a dud and a massive waste of money and time... Too many gizmos and computer driven components on this POS means that any failure is catastrophic to the poor pilots that are flying this lemon...

(g) The cost of this monstrosity has ballooned to near $200 MILLION a copy, and the total cost of the entire program for the US airforce alone is well over $1 TRILLION.....

Honestly, this list could indeed go on and on... The facts are that the US government has fully committed to this program with no other alternatives in sight....  Basically once these aircraft start flying the skies, the US airforce will be a sitting duck against ANY adversary that will be flying Russian or Chinese built aircraft that are vastly superior to this POS.....

I said before that any pilot that honestly decides to fly this thing into combat may as well be signing his own death warrant... I hope these pilots have good life insurance for they will need it!

More to come

I really liked this article and other articles you've authored.

Would you be OK if I shared one of your articles with the WriterBeat.com community? I can provide more information about Writer Beat or answer any question, but better than anything I can say in words, please take a look at the site.

If yes, just give me an "OK" and I'll handle the rest (there is no fee).
