    Turkey won't be getting any F-35s now, or 10 years later. This is a GOOD THING, and here's why:



    It's just a 10 minute video interview with the designer of the super-successful F-16 and A-10 fighters. Please watch it and understand why the F-35 is fundamentally flawed and doomed to fail against any enemy with a modern Air Force.

    This is an old interview but very valid.
    Project AZM should focus on air to air combat with a 2nd strike capability for long range SOW capability

    How the F-35 is TOTAL BULLSHIT and was only designed to do one thing: Siphon money into the pockets of the US military industrial complex.

    Doubt you've been keeping up with the latest news. F35 literally destroyed F16s in combat simulations during red flag

    Vox nicely explains how the F-35 is an elaborate SCAM created for $$$.

    Such "simulations" are fully controlled by the US military industrial complex. F-16s were built by the same company (Lockheed) who's now trying to aggressively market the F-35. How do you think it'd look if its old planes beat its new planes? It's all rigged and bullshit. You'd get a more honest assessment reading Lockheed's product brochures.

    How would lockheed control the red flag results? They had seasoned well respected pilots flying f16s against noob pilots flying f35 and they got destroyed. The company does not control the red flag exercise. The f16 pilots made every effort to gun down the F35(why wouldn't they, no seasoned pilot wants to look like a total dork), but were totally outgunned. If it helps you sleep you can keep believing these old videos, but reality is that a squadron of F35s can destroy like a 100 4th gen jets without as much as getting a scratch. Turkey made a huge mistake going for the S400.

    No wonder even Elon Musk has said F-35s are losers vis-a-vis advanced and intelligent drones!! He smokes pot for a reason...

    Excellent point. He's a very smart man, and owns companies like Tesla and SpaceX.

    Yeah,we are so lucky,the F-35 is so bad that the Israelis were the first non-partner to get them.
    They must be out of their minds,how could they have made such a mistake,im sure it was a political move.
    Thank god we dodged the bullit by buying the S-400 from Russia our BFF.

    These fake so-called "experts" and their worthless incorrect analysis are bullsh*t. The F-35 is the most advanced and powerful fighter, besides F-22. The F-35 with a mediocre pilot will on any day defeat multiple Rafales, Eurofighters, Su-35s, Su-57s and what other Chinese crap you pit against it.

    Turkey played a game of chicken on the F-35-S400 dispute and the Americans didn't blink. Turkey lost big time, unfortunately.

    Israel is a fake state. There was a tank called merkava, they claimed to be invincible before Hezbollah destroyed them.

    Pierre Sprey said in the 70s that BVR is a fantasy and equipping fighters with advanced radars is a scam as they should be used as agile fighters in close gun fights :rofl::tdown:

    So yeah...let's listen to this guy...

    I just don't understand the obsession some have with the conspiracy theories over F-35 and it's failure.

    The company that made the F-16, quite possibly the best fighter jet of its time, progressed to F-35 and yet people think that the F-35, with decades of technology, is bound to fail!! These threads are ridiculous.
