This is not Russian “propaganda”. This is an official US government document. And an amazing read. See for yourself:
I would like to use this opportunity to wholeheartedly congratulate Israel for being the first country outside the USA to deploy this superb aircraft!
Israeli Minister of Defense Avigdor Liberman speaks June 22 during the Lockheed Martin rollout the first F-35 for Israel in a ceremony at Lockheed’s west Fort Worth plant

Is there a document to read? Not appearing.
Poster, I don’t know what you are referring to. If you are having any sort of difficulty reading an article or link, you need to give specific directions if I am to help you. mod PS
A, & anybody else not seeing the document PDF
This may be a dumb reply to your post, however, I clicked on the ‘screenshot’ of the pdf, and got redirected to it for reading and downloading.
“I would like to use this opportunity to wholeheartedly congratulate Israel for being the first country outside the USA to deploy this superb aircraft!”
Actually, the Italian (not the Israeli) Air Force has been the first service to take delivery of the first operational F-35s outside the United States. (https://theaviationist.com/2016/12/15/italy-has-become-the-first-country-to-operate-the-f-35-outside-of-the-u-s/)
Israeli pilots didn’t even fly the planes from the US, that was done by Lockheed pilots.
Damning report, probably the worst aspect is the way the dod sacrifices necessary modifications and testing in order to make the aircraft appear service ready earlier than it actually will be. Always it’s the image that counts with these israeloamerican capitalists.
“This is not Russian “propaganda”.
Yeah, but this is. ;D
F-35 has 276 deficiencies and counting, unfit for combat operations – Pentagon report
Obviously, as with the american election, RT influenced this negative report out of the pentagon. ;D
Must not underestimate the cunning of the israeli. They may be trying to reverse-engineer cutting-edge technologies from the f35 into their own arms industry. Havent they also done technology espionage on the arms industry in the US?
and they will make the US pay for the planes with military aid….
Maybe Israelis will secretly pass on F-35A directly to China, like they did with MIM-104 Patriot PVO, immediately after “Desert Storm” in 1991. Next Chineses exchanged Patriot with Russians by S-300 system, which was aproximately 20 years ahead. Today chinese HQ-19 PVO systems are 5% copy of Patriot and 90% copy of S-300/400 systems, 5% is original chinese, roughly.
Chinese J-31 stealth fighter has aerodynamical design similar to F-35, but without F-35 flaws (2 engines, without VTOL). Plans was stolen from Lockheed contractors computers couple years ago.
F-35 was invited by Putin, of course, to destroy West air forces inside.
Israel is the only F-35 partner who has permission to open the avionics system and modify it.
And who committed that act of treason? Even the CIA has Israel first on the list of nations who are the greatest espionage threat to the USA. Strangely enough, the NSA still sends all raw data to Israel for ‘processing and analysis’ on the strength of a one-page ‘memorandum of understanding’ in which the Israelis promise not to misuse the information they glean.
And they worry about Putin and Russia! It is either incompetence or treason. I see no third option.
Check out this ANNA News report on Russian military police in Aleppo:
What’s even more amazing is the price of USD 100 M for this flying wreck.
the F22 costs $350 million yet can’t fly during a rainy day due to inadequate composite materials in the hull.
even if they fix all those 276 deficiencies, no american stealth aircraft is a match against
dancing Serb babushkas
cue Serb accordion folk music…
This is ridiculous.
I’m not sad at all that a US is planing to rely on a garbage plane and has already bought about 350 of these even BEFORE the initial testing has been completed, but looking from their point of view – these are the people who should be tried for treason instead of Assange and Snowden.
I’ve read the first 12 pages, and it’s beyond a joke. They don’t even have a SIMULATOR ready! More faults are popping up than are being resolved. This flying junk has been designed as a single-engine, and then loaded up with so much weight that is basically less manouverable than the earlier generation planes. The current software is already pushing the onboard computers beyond their capacity, and they are already planning upgrades for both, again BEFORE the initial testing is completed? Imagine flying this thing in combat, and seeing the spinning hourglass and a message “Please wait”.
The gun can’t aim, end pylons can’t hold AA missiles while on deck, making software work correctly with US bombs makes it not work with UK bombs and vice versa…
This is ridiculous. $1.5 Trillion dollars and counting… They could solve America’s homeless’ problem with $186 billions, but I guess that wouldn’t be profitable…
“This flying junk has been designed as a single-engine, and then loaded up with so much weight that is basically less manouverable than the earlier generation planes.”
Maybe someone has been working from within to sabotage the entire program. Putin?
The f35 is the greatest defense program ever conceived. The program is so well designed it’s politically unkillable. The usaf is ending wellproven and needed programs like the a10 to fund it negatively impacting its operational capabilities for at least a generation .
It has never been deployed successfully and is already enriching the company that invented it.
If only it turns out Russia is behind it, it would surpass the Trojan horse
When will the Anglo-Zionists of the US Military Industrial branch-plant blame Putin or his agents for foisting the program on them?
If that will limit U$ military interventions around the globe, let’s hope they will be busy with the deficiencies till the next century… ;)
The mission of this airplane is to bankrupt the American taxpayer, Pierre Sprey hits it on the head and tells it straight on this jalopy. The US Navy got rid of it’s old F-14 to make room for the naval variant of this aircraft because it was too expensive? Meanwhile the PAK-FA is spinning around like a top and performing gravity-defying stunts at no where near the cost of this “marvel”. It’s the ultimate scam.
To borrow from the admirable. Gus Grissom, may this manifestation of technical exceptionalism be henceforward be referred to as the Lockheed Lemon.
This document is from 2017. So it’s not saying so much about today.
From my perspective, as a resident of NE Arnhem Land in northern Australia, I see calamity being bestowed on us by an America convinced of its own military superiority whilst it whips up war fever in the Asia-Pacific, Middle East, African, and Russian regions.
I do appreciate that this statement makes little sense, until one becomes aware that the Pentagon is currently building an ICBM launching pad only 40 Ks from where I write… unbeknownst to the Australian people. Pathologically sycophantic Australian politicians have fed we Aussies the yarn that the rocket base is a civilian aerospace project which will earn Australia millions in revenue and create many jobs. Media celebrity scientists laud this as Australia hauling ourselves into the 21st Century.
Meanwhile, I glance at military logistics and weaponry and note that the US has only 2 long range missiles: the Minuteman III and the Trident D-5. With the same or better range, Russia and China have 12 ICBMs/LCBMs.
Clearly, if the US is to precipitate global war against China and Russia, as per 2015 Rand Report recommendation, it is already defeated. Which means that pre-emptive or reprisal nuclear missile strikes will rain down on our Northern Territory; with a minimum of seven destruction zones… if my calculations are correct: Pine Gap, Middle Point, Shoal Bay, Tindal Air Base, Darwin Airport, Darwin Submarine Base, and the Gulkula pad to knock out the one or more of the above US ICBMs.
And even if Trump wins the elections, and a crazed WWIII is not launched, the Pentagon plans to install the largest Pacific naval base in Melville Bay, replacing the RioTinto Alumina Plant. Two Aboriginal communities will be bulldozed to make way for personnel accommodation and all of this is happening without any awareness whatsoever of the Australian people. Rupert Murdoch maintains a very effective media backout.
We urgently require the US to leave our shores. Who needs a defense alliance with the biggest risk for WWIII to wipe out our population?
RE: The F-35
I remember reading some 2 to 3 years ago that members of the military referred to this aircraft as
The Flying Piece of Shit!
Including servicing costs $1.7 trillion. Thats GDP of a medium sized country. What a mess. Greatest military hardware failure in history? Russian Federation spends 12¢ for every dollar the US spends on its military. Bang for your buck is coming from Eurasia not AngloLGBTQ+Land
