        The fact that the US Air Force received 353, and not 500 F-35.

          Muvka, I don’t know about you, but here (in the USSR) the mathematics was different from yours.
          Title:
          "Lockheed Martin delivered the 500th F-35 fighter"

          Task: Find X = 500 fighters.

          Given:
          a) F35A - built 354 pcs.
          b) F35B - built 108 pcs.
          c) F35C - built 38 pcs.

          Decision:
          X = a + b + c = 354 + 108 + 38 = 500.

          Amazing math.

      The most important thing on this plane is commercial success ...

      Not a penguin but a broiler. And as for the sale, it’s like a holiday .. Let me remind you that in addition to the US itself, another dozen and a half developed countries donated not only a lot of money for this, but also their brains and production sites. Huge advertising company. Huge investments .. Pushing for the purchase of all who even wanted to go out. Production capacity. It is difficult to talk about its value as a combat unit - it is not run-in and just very expensive both in itself and the hour of operation.
      So 500 pieces is the norm for all years of production. Let me remind you that the Russian Federation can not sell its equipment on such a scale as the United States around the world. And the USA is the leader of the Western world. Here is the answer - so you don’t need to sing F-35 odes.

              The answer has already been written a bit below. I’ll just add that, by and large, the Western countries have no alternative but it. Moreover, in the next 10-15 years. So no one will throw a stone at him ... and they won’t give it ..

              One SU-57 will carry a dozen penguins with micronuclear ammunition from a distance of 250 kilometers. Pi sys traditionally try to catch up with Russia in the aircraft industry, but as always unsuccessfully. Especially funny are their attempts to contrast the worthless AFAR with the best ROFAR. By the time the SU-57 is launched into the series, all these penguins are godlessly out of date, and this is in our favor!


              are you kidding me ??? What kind of hatred? Now in Norway and Belgium (with their population) there are more 5th generation aircraft than in Russia.

              "By the time the SU-57 is launched into the series, all these penguins are godlessly out of date, and this is in our favor!" - by that time, while ours will be put into series and bring the number of Su-57 to at least several dozen, the F-35 will undergo more than one modernization.

                As some like to compare promising ours with current and serial “their” machines. With ROFAR the same story (there is generally a distant prospect).

      Slowly, but surely everything goes to this. I hope that the MIG35 with all the bells and whistles created for it will go into operation, and not according to the optional economy option. It was promised launch in a series of ROFAR, hoping that it was the 35th first to receive it with the first production cars. But for now, silence.

              This is of course ... not cheap, but for the full use of this type of military equipment, a network infrastructure of reconnaissance, control, and automated combat support systems is required! Those. a full-fledged military network structure, which itself will draw on such grandmas ... some as they understand, hiccup still or treat a nervous tick! It’s not for nothing that this pepelats is driven into a distant hangar and God forbid scratching anything there.

          Those who have already invested can and are "standing" ... the money is already spent.
          Whoever got the plane is simply off topic, because there is still much that needs to be created behind it, without which its declared benefits do not work. This, by the way, is normal, high-class equipment does not help much for those who cannot afford the entire accompanying complex of nishtyaks and other technical support.

          There is no queue. Those who invested in the project get their planes. Those who have not invested are not in a hurry to acquire them. The problem in the market is that there is no alternative yet. Yes, here the Americans are farthest with the "5th generation."

                In many countries, this is so ... The purchase is not cheap, and the opposition always accuses the ruling party of corruption with such a multi-billion dollar purchase.
                There in Israel bought diesel submarines in Germany. Everyone agrees that the submarines are excellent and that they are urgently needed. But the cases are already open: the lawyer X was overpaid, the expert gamer received too much for the consultations, etc.

                      There are always alternatives. And, it is still a moot point whether the F-35 is representative of the 5th generation.

                        You can assume that the F-35 is a "thing in itself," beyond generations. But the thing is unique in capabilities. The other day, Israeli Elbit won a tender for a completely new protocol for full video communication in real time for the next F-35 Block. There are no other aircraft technologically prepared for such upgrades. No matter how they pull Rafal and Gripen with all their strength, they do not reach the F-35 by avionics.

                        They will not argue, the F-35 is a flying I-Phone and a lot of things are laid in it, which (so far) are not on other planes. Well, the price tag for it is appropriate, and the development costs there are just going wild. Where is Rafal, Gripen or Typhoon taken there.

    There is a good book about the Lockheed Martin division, which is engaged in new developments. It's called "Skunk Works. Personal Memoirs of My Work at Lockheed." U-2, SR-71, F-117, F-22, F-35 - all this is their doing. The engineering and organizational approach is very interesting in the design, testing and launching into serial production. It is surprising what forces and in what terms each stage is implemented, how resources are used, how control is carried out. You think: Yo! How is that possible?

        No. The first penguins due to design flaws will not be able to become combat.

        The situation with starfighters is a little far-fetched. In fact, a mediocre aircraft was appointed a widow because of illiterate task setting. But the United States retained only a third of the starfighters, the rest quickly shining off to the Allies.

    Even looking at the comments of local couch military men, I immediately want to recall those screams where even 5-7 years ago they wrote that he would never normally go into the series. That no one will buy it. Etc. At what to read claims to the glider is ridiculous. Like the Yak-141 - so brilliant aircraft. And as the F35 - so generally a kakaha glider, they do not know how to design ...
    In fact, people don’t even understand that the approach to creating airplanes has changed. In the modern world, there is no need for separation into light fighters, bombers, fighter-bombers, etc. The development of technology has finally come to that dream of the United States, where all battles are won by missiles and smart weapons. They dreamed about it back in the 60s. But only now is it a reality. The possibility of any BVB on cannons with turns is about the same as a series of special forces fighting on knives. Only after I lost the machine gun, gun, spatula ... Then you can take up the knives. That is why so beautiful and good in terms of gaining dominance in the air F22 went under the knife. They handed over how much they did and that's it. All this is simply not necessary.
    Objectively. Now the aircraft is primarily a platform for weapons. Fly where you need to, work out the point. Fly away. And the F35 was created precisely as such a unified weapon carrier platform.
    No need to rivet the already obsolete Su34 to bomb someone there. Any modern fighter bomber can perfectly cope with this. Even our Su30-35 will do this without straining, subject to the availability of acc. hanging equipment.

    For the same reason, the real fate of the Su57 is also in question. How many will be in the end. And what they will be. The glider was initially not very sharpened by attacks on ground targets. And he was such an answer to F22. But in fact this is now a priority. And the new "light" aircraft that would replace Mig29 / Su22 / Su24, etc., as a workhorse, etc. as it is. So do not dream.
