I was expecting something about tooth decay.

He's joking isn't he? Please say he is..... Also lol at him thinking that Russia has a significant number of SU-35s. I also love the way the F-35 starts four feet from the MiGs, and facing away from them. Please please say he's joking !

First of Apri passed this year and the next is months away. This video is a clickbait or the guy is simply a moron or just sarcastic by this way.

Well, he has actually demonstrated the F-35's worst enemy:

Armchair analysts persuading everyone that it's a piece of shit pork-barrel project and instead we should just procure more F-16s/restart F-22 production/buy Flanker variants/just produce a million Warthogs because the US is definitely never going to have to fight a conventional war again. :lol:

The bit that always wound me up about that sort of talk, aside from it all being bollocks, is that it never took into consideration any of the US allies who've pretty much pinned all of their hopes on the F-35. Still, it's too late now, it's in service, we win.
What if Wargame stuck to timeframe?

Well f22 production would be nice but is too expensive.

And the stick to legacy aircraft makes sense when people say there isn't going to be a major war. I consider that as an excuse for more cuts personally though
