  •  Re: the F-35, Canada is probably better off (0+ / 0-)

    ...without. The F-35 will probably end up being a hanger queen, like the even-more-outrageously-expensive F-22. The major culprit is  all the fancy surface materials and coatings required to achieve a low radar cross section (i.e., "stealth).

    The F-22 has been operational for some time now, and has yet to fly a single combat mission AFAIK. Too expensive and too fragile. The F-35 will be a little better on both counts, but not a lot.

    The Australian Air Force is buying F/A-18E/F; Canada would be wise to do likewise (if they want to buy American).
