Shit, the guy you're replying to probably doesn't even play anymore, let alone come to the forums.

He probably won't come to forum anymore, but when the next person see this thread in the future ( through Google search or whatever), he will know that Absha is not working for Dassault but only an internet fanboy who learned some acronyms. That important

Not a fan of F35 for a few reasons.
1) Israel can modify it the UK can’t and we where key to it’s development especially on the B model.
2) I am concerned that non US equipment may take ages to get installed or won’t get installed such as the Mauser BK27
3) it’s killed more than a few aircraft projects like replica.
Do I thinks it’s going to be a bad plane no I don’t.

By Google? Over all the other F-35 discussions on actual aviation websites?

The only people that would have discovered this thread would have been by searches on this forum, which is rather limited.

If you don't know this, your knowledge of aircraft is not to the point where there is any point in debating aircraft with you.

I think this belongs here:
The German Air Force has a shortlist of existing platforms to replace its Panavia Tornados from 2025 to 2030, but the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) is the service’s “preferred choice", a senior service official said on 8 November.

Speaking under the Chatham House Rule, the official said that the F-35 already fulfils most of the requirements that the Luftwaffe requires to replace its Tornados in the 2025 to 2030 timeframe, and that it offers a number of other benefits besides.

“The Tornado replacement needs to be fifth-generation aircraft that can be detected as late as possible, if at all. It must be able to identify targets from a long way off and to target them as soon as possible.

“The German Ministry of Defence [MoD] is looking at several aircraft today, including the F-35 – it is commercially available already, has been ordered by many nations and is being introduced into service today, and has most of the capabilities required.”
