Lockheed’s costly and behind schedule F-35 to be BILLIONS MORE says Pentagon
The F-35 we are told is worth the immense cost and the long wait. It’s the nextgen platform of nextgen weapons platforms.
Let’s hope so given how much taxpayers are in for.
“At current estimates, the projected F-35 sustainment outlays based upon given planned fleet growth will strain future service operations and support budgets,” the report said. Lockheed also “must embrace much-needed supply chain management affordability initiatives, optimize priorities across the supply chain for spare and new production parts” and share the data rights to certain F-35 software with the Pentagon.
