In one of his "War Is Boring" pieces now at Medium.com David Axe has written his analysis of the F-35.  Perhaps his most important contribution is to explain to those who want to "fix" (or "stabilize") the F-35 through the test process and build some limited number of them and thereby "save money" is a bankrupt idea.  Because of the nature of its design origins, explained cogently by Axe, the F-35 cannot be fixed, and it will never be a successful component of effective American air combat forces.
 
This article by David Axe, "F’d: How the U.S. and Its Allies Got Stuck with the World’s Worst New Warplane," August 19, 2013 at Medium.com.

The goal of the Straus Military Reform Project is to secure far more effective military forces and much more ethical and professional military and civilian leadership at significantly lower budget levels.

We would like to thank Philip A. Straus Jr. and family for their generous support.

Ministers & their military advisor's are feeling very 'loose' over reports of the V/STOL Lightning's lamentable air combat abilities & that its its speed, manoeuvrability & range have been irrevocably compromised by heavy design. So they should after spending untold millions of pounds building two carriers unable to accommodate anything else.. site

Education also inspires our enemies to get an education because they will see our rising graph and they will feel that this is something that every person should have because it makes the man a proper man or women for the brighter future of the nation. rush essay writing service
