Big talk from a pilot-gone-con-man.
As mentioned in the article, there are no credible results of operational test. Also, there is no complete, functional F-35 with go to war systems.
I am curious what the pilot-gone-con-man thinks the F-35 is capable of bombing? CAS? No ROVER. High end threats? Like the "4th-gens" he mentions, not survivable.
The F-35 is too expensive to own and operate for non-high-end threats and too weak to take on emerging threats.
