Bad News for Lockheed's F-35 Stealth Fighter: This Warplane Has "Serious Deficiencies"

Bloomberg is now saying that Pentagon director of combat testing Michael Gilmore recently warned Congress of "serious deficiencies" in the F-35 stealth fighter -- deficiencies over and above those related to the gun. Already over budget and overdue for deployment, Gilmore says the F-35 still has only limited ability to:

drop bombs
share data with other aircraft
track hostile incoming missiles
identify enemy radar
and, in general, perform "effective combat operations against advanced enemy air defenses"

His understated assessment: This plane has "deficiencies remaining that will affect operational units."
