The F-35 may be today's equivalent of a battleship. A weapon with no mission. It's a fine fighter bomber, but where will it ever be used? There is no credible threat to our air superiority. Not even China. What would be the targets for a new bomber?

Seems like a boondoggle when viewed from that side. It has one good feature. It keeps the design and manufacturing capability for this type of aircraft alive. Our military industrial complex is a ravenous beast and requires feeding.
