F35 Sets New Record

102 produced with not one mission ready! How exciting, we must dump the A-10 ASAP so we can buy more of these. Also just found out that the F-22 uses 90's era computers with a blazing operating speed of 25 MHz.

and your surprised with this? This coming from a country who elected a moron twice, and is just barely starting to see the repercussions? This also coming from a country who chose to take 30 caliber battle rifles away from their combat troops and give them weaselly little plastic 22s?

"Also just found out that the F-22 uses 90's era computers with a blazing operating speed of 25 MHz."

True or not, I wouldn't be too quick to jump on that. If a 14oz hammer gets the job done, there is no need to buy a 16oz hammer. That 25MHz chip runs a lot cooler, uses a lot less power and probably (without knowing which chip it is) has dedicated hardware built in for controlling external hardware that wouldn't be available in faster chips intended for other purposes.

As a C-130 crew chief i love the fact that the newest stealth fighters arent fully operational while i'm fixing acft that range from the 1960s-2000s.

Pork barrel politics
Keeps lots of people employed and drives the overall economy while increasing national debt and raising taxes.

When the government is in a hole, it buys bigger shovels....

Dont forget that the chip doesn't have to run windows. Lol
Seriously though, I agree with the above statement 100%.

Aircraft are built around the technology available when they are designed. Putting the latest processor in would be like getting a brain transplant.

All i know is the joke in the maintenance world is if you see a F22 flying then it's broke. and if you see a f35 flying then it's not really a f35. just like a C-5. boy oh boy do those things break all the time.

There was a man who spoke....more like exploded...over the multi role....anything.

The Ghetto Colonel John Boyd flipped his lid many a time over this very thing. He would be apoplectic over the F-35.

The A-10 was born of the process by which he, Pierre Sprey, and Tom Christie employed.

Three old sayings come to mind
The more "one size fits all" the less chance of fitting anyone.
"The more complicated you make the plumbing the easier it is to stop up"
"Just because it's new , doesn't mean it's better"

A-10's, B-52's C-130, simple, can actually fly, get the jobs done unlike some of the newer, faster, better(?) aircraft...

That 25 Mhz processor is likely EMP hardened, and is running an OS similar to OS-9000/80x86 [a VERY efficient RTOS] and thus will be more than just adequate.

How could anyone in their right mind add a STOL/VTOL requirement to a multipurpose stealth fighter design. Talk about a bridge too far.

Some bold statements, and an entertaining interview. Saw this a while ago and got a kick out of it. The idea that such an aircraft could replace the A-10 is laughable. No other way to say it.



He's a colorful character apparently, and certainly not a fool, though it appears not everyone agrees with his views. http://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/pie...and-1592445665
