If you haven’t been following the saga of the F-35 you have missed out on the high drama of a fighter some call “over-priced” and “unnecessary”. Seems like pretty much every CT project.
This top-of-the-line technological terror spent years in development and has gone way over-budget. The CT pols involved in backing the project have been accused of taking money from the companies involved in the fighter’s development. All in all, it is just your typical bureaucratic nonsense. Business as usual.
In the end the F-35 is pretty badass but is it necessary and worth the price tag?
