In another effort of irresponsible copy-paste reporting we have this from The Canberra Times wooing over what is not much more than an F-35 game simulator.
The effort of this simulator has no other purpose than to generate interest in the cause to the gullible.
The test-pilot (of whom he and his peer group now have a post-flight checklist that includes quotes from a press-release) is not in a representative F-35 environment.
The F-35 depends on a sensor display helmet which at this time is faulty and worse, a major key performance perimeter (KPP) of the program.
The game-fraud simulator also doesn't have the known thermal issues with the aircraft, faulty equipment like the integrated power-pack (IPP) or a mountain of operational software issues to get over.
It always wins.
Funny too is this over the Super Hornet. Well, well. If it is so great, why do we even need the Just So Failed?
Enjoy the irresponsible hype.
You paid for it.
