The fact that pilots like it carries great weight in the planes favor.

...deliver a constant 28 degrees of turn a second. When the Air Force removes the restrictions, this jet will be eye watering.

from a grunt...what does removing the restrictions actually mean ?

I keep reading about this being a good replacement for the A10 among other things. Part of the beauty of the A10 was it’s ability to take hits and make it back home.

Is the F35 going to be able to take major damage and still limp back home?

Are they allowed to say what they really think, without fear of retribution?

All positive and nothing negative makes the article suspect. Although reading between the lines, the F35 probably isn’t as good as the A10 in high threat situations.

“graduate of the Air Force Weapons Instructor Course of “Top Gun” fame”

I’m glad they clarified that. I always thought that Top Gun was Navy, with the uniforms and aircraft carriers and all.

every U.S. fighter pilot interviewed would pick the F-35A over his former jet in a majority of air-to-air (dogfight) engagement scenarios they could face.

How many dogfight engagements have A-10's been in?

Lies! All lies! This aircraft is a gold plated pig and will never amount to anything. Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?
