These "fighter" jets don't fight anything. They are Weapons of Mass Destruction - nothing more. They will be flown by hot-shot "Tom Cruises." Canada's military morons must be stopped! The argument that "we" need cheaper ones or better ones is just bullshit.

I find it hard to believe that the F35 will carry a 40,000 Lb warload. If it carries more than 15,000 lbs it wil not be stealthy because halv of that wil be hanging under the wings.

The Wikipedia site says that he F35 can carry 2- 2,000 lb bombs plus missiles internally and up to 15,000 lbs of hardware under the wings for a total of 18,000 lbs of munitions. That is about the same as the J39. When the F35 carries more than the 2-2,000 lbs of bombs, they will be hanging from the wings and the airplane will no longer be stealthy. I think the Gripen is a better deal- if you confine yourself to considering single engine aircraft. I think that we should consider the Rafale, the Super Hornet and the Typhoon because they are twin engined aircraft. Twin engines, range, high speed, and short field performance are assets in the far north.
