New US Jet. Obviously, we don't want to say ANYTHING about it.
But it is interesting.

Gee hate to say it but...
I think the Air Force and it’s suppliers are trying to push production of an airplane that isn’t advisable in a day of drones that aren’t restricted by human g-force limits.
Honestly. I hate that human pilots are a disqualifying factor.
But they undeniably are.

Does it look like a Tic-Tac?

Reading between the lines, this sounds like the F-35 has insurmountable problems if the Air Force is already building its replacement.
Built by the Luck-up Corporation?

Reminds me of the joke about planes of the future, with a dog and a pilot.
The dog is there to bite the pilot if he touches anything.
The pilot is there to feed the dog.

Good bet the Chicoms are right on it.

The usual sloppy reporting:
"That line of production has brought criticism to the Pentagon, most recently in the Lockheed Martin-made F-35, which lawmakers have long"
Lockheed-Martin has now brought the per-plane cost below that of a new F15E, and significantly reduced maintenance costs. Most of which is due to Trump's pushback.

Remember they were running sorties with the F117 before anyone knew it existed.
Betcha the cost per copy on this new one is a joke.

Then why are they saying ANYTHING about it?
Undoubtedly is “old news” in China...
The thousands & thousands of chicom scientists/spies and engineers/spies working in DOD-supported industries will probably have, inadvertently, leaked all data to the Chinese military since the project's secret inception...
