USN is not responsible for anything wrong with F-35 because USN was forced to participate in the program.

The most important thing that everyone needs to understand whenever commenting on F-35 is that JSF was never about delivering what any of the services wanted. JSF was Lockheed's strategy to corner the fighter market. Every problem in the program stems directly from there.

Now take your fantasies to proper threads. This one is for F-35.
One more point, at current prices, tbh, F-35 is the most attractive option.

Block 3F cooling capacity, 32 KW and they can go as high as 47 KW for apparently the latest block. The importance is that one can actually start figuring the power specification for the TRM's and therefore Radar range.

I believe the Block 4 requirement has a 60 kW cooling capacity. Collins Aerospace recently demonstrated an 80 kW cooling unit called

One analysis I’ve read states that it is more due to ground crew negligence than quality of aircraft. When the plane is in a parked state you are supposed to insert a pin into the joint of the fronts landing gear for load bearing purposes when the plane is shut off. Apparently that wasn’t done.

Yeah, as in article tho it requires changes in structures. Otherwise it would be 47 KW. 80KW would be great tho.

Nonetheless not all of those will go to Radar.
