1) anzitutto ti calmi, non stuzzicare in toni provocatori gli altri utenti e come premio per la condotta ti prendi una tacca. 

 

2) un sistema allo stadio prototipico è praticamente nella sua fase embrionale, è impostato ma subisce nella maggior parte dei casi modifiche più o meno estensive. Un sistema che sta terminando la fase di sviluppo è impostato totalmente, non subirà estensive modifiche e nel caso specifico manca solo dell’integrazione con tutti i sistemi d’arma la totale apertura del software in tutti i suoi aspetti.

Forse Blob e HiroToMe intendevano non " prototipi " ma " preserie " ....

A proposito di sviluppo & evoluzione , a quando il primo F 35 italico con il cannone ?

Colpo di fulmine ...

Two airmen from the 34th Fighter Squadron at Hill AFB, Utah, were involved in "a nearby indirect lightning strike" on Nov. 7 while working on an F-35 at Eglin AFB, Fla., 53rd Wing public affairs chief Maj. Ashley Conner told Air Force Magazine Thursday. 
The airmen were clearing the flight line when the incident occurred, she said, explaining that this process is normally undertaken after lightning is spotted "or lightning warnings are issued."
"One airman was closing an F-35 canopy and the other airman was winding up a grounding wire," Conner explained.

The source said the plan did not envisage a reduction in orders, merely a slowdown of intake, which would leave the decision of the total F-35 purchase to a future government. 

Non trattandosi di tagli effettivi ... la cosa mi sembra meno brutta di quanto si potesse temere.

Bisognerà vedere come la prenderà la base 'talebana' del M5S che, anche in questo caso, viene menata per il naso dalla propria dirigenza ... che promette, promette ma, di fronte alla realtà dei fatti, si trova costretta a rimangiarsi anche i c:censura:...

Salvo poi scaricare opportunamente la patata bollente a un non meglio specificato 'futuro governo' ...

Atterraggi “creativi” della UK Navy. In pratica gli F-35 atterrano anche con pieno carico usando una combinazione fra il classico atterraggio assistito da cavi (che mancano sulla Queen Elizabeth e il vertical landing. Cioè un atterraggio in slow motion. Video nell’articolo.

17+18 = 35 ...

Quote

The UK is set to double its number of world-beating F-35 stealth jets after ordering 17 more aircraft, Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson has announced.
The 17 new F-35B aircraft will be delivered between 2020 and 2022 and will complement the 16 British aircraft currently based at RAF Marham and in the US, as well as two additional aircraft which are already on order.
Overall, the UK has committed to procure 138 aircraft over the life of the programme.

Purtroppo è vero ... e la situazione non è per noi di certo esaltante.

Quindi, almeno per ora, dovremo accontentarci di quel che passa il convento ... nella speranza che non duri troppo a lungo e che si riesca a capire che, se si continua così, non si andrà a finire da nessuna parte.

"And will make the F-35A even more lethal" ...

Quote

The 388th Fighter Wing’s 34th Fighter Squadron recently returned from a weapons evaluation exercise at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, where they employed the GBU-49 for the first time in F-35A combat training. 
The GBU-49 is a laser and GPS guided bomb that can be used in a variety of conditions against many types of moving or stationary targets.
“It’s a really flexible weapon. It was reliable, accurate, and effective,” said Lt. Col. Matthew Johnston. 
“Like any new weapon, what we learned, and what we will learn as we continue to train with the GBU-49, will directly impact our tactics and will make the F-35A even more lethal.”

The U.S. Defense Department has delivered a report to Congress detailing implications of Turkey receiving 100 F-35 fighter jets, five people familiar with the report said, removing a key hurdle to concluding the deal.
Turkey’s planned purchase of the Russian-made S-400 missile defense system has raised concerns in the West, since it could be used to give Moscow deep insight into the vulnerabilities of the most advanced U.S. warplane at a time of tension between the two powers, experts have said.
Ellen Lord, the Pentagon’s chief arms buyer, told Reuters in an interview that Turkey’s plans to buy the S-400 system were “extremely problematical” and numerous U.S. officials had discussed the issue with Ankara, but there were no signs that Turkey had changed its mind about buying the Russian system.

Altri 100 F-35 per il Giappone ?

Quote

Tokyo is reportedly considering the acquisition of an additional 100 Lockheed Martin F-35 fighters, adding to the 42 F-35As already planned.
According to an unsourced report in Japan’s Nikkei newspaper, Tokyo would spread the acquisition between the conventional takeoff and landing F-35A variant and the short take off vertical landing F-35B.
When asked about the potential 100 aircraft acquisition, Lockheed Martin said: “Japan is a critical customer and their current program of record is for 42 F-35A aircraft. While we have not been officially notified of an increased order, as always, we will support our US and Japanese government customers to ensure they can meet their current and future defense need.
