    Japan will not rely only on F35, as you insinuate.
    They are developping a true Air fighter by themseves. A proof that F35 is not a multi role fighter, at least not good in air dominance.

    I think it's like quantum mechanics: for this one there are uncertain relations between position and speed, for the F-35 it's between the price and the delivery date. :rofl:

    The difference shouldn't be $100M per jet. That's like a whole new jet.

    However, he was not aware of "the detailed status or risks of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter" and would have to review the program before he can make a recommendation to Navy Secretary Spencer on whether to purchase the full run of F-35s, mix and match with other aircraft like enhanced F-18s, or move some production toward a new airframe altogether.

    The multi-billion pound scheme to buy F-35 Lightning II jump jets is the UK’s second largest weapons programme, but the MOD has refused to tell Parliament how much they will cost.

    A Commons defence select committee report has said the MOD’s response is “wholly unacceptable” and demanded six monthly updates on the programme to buy the Lockheed Martin jets.

    Julian Lewis MP, chairman of the committee said: “There has been an unacceptable lack of transparency from the MoD and Lockheed Martin which risks undermining public confidence in the programme.
