“…after the F-35 first flew , it remains in development, though 180 have been built. None of those aircraft can operate in combat…”
“…пилоты F-22 ежемесячно проводят в воздухе 10–12 часов, а для того, чтобы принимать решения в бою за доли секунды, необходимо 20 часов, говорится в American Thinker.”
“…F-22 with its $70,000-per-hour operating cost. Raptor pilots get 10 to 12 hours per month in the cockpit when 20 hours are needed to be able to make split-second decisions in combat.”
“5. The F-35 uses its fuel for cooling its electronics. The aircraft won't start if its fuel is too warm, making deployment in warmer regions problematic. At the Yuma and Luke U.S. Air Force bases in Arizona, fuel trucks for the F-35 are painted white, parked in covered bays, and chilled with water mist systems because the jet won't even start if the fuel is already too warm to cool the electronics.
6. The F-35 has a logistics system (ALIS) that requires an internet connection to a centralized maintenance system in the US. ALIS is kept permanently informed of each aircraft’s technical status and maintenance requirements. ALIS can, and has, prevented aircraft taking off because of an incomplete data file. If the internet link is down, the aircraft can’t fly even if there is nothing wrong with it. This is one of the more bizarre problems. It could lead to a situation in which enemy aircraft are inbound and the F-35s are refueled and ready to go but can't take off to meet the threat.”
