WE WANT A RETURN FOR OUR INVESTMENT AND WE WANT IT NOW!
"US Marine Corps Eager to Accelerate Growth of F-35 Fleet"
"A top aviation official wants the US government to buy 37 F-35Bs annually, an uptick from 20 aircraft per year."
"The service [Marine aviation] has endured 'a very anemic ramp' while incorporating F-35Bs into its aviation force, Lt. Gen. John Davis, deputy commander for aviation at the US Marine Corps, said Wednesday . . . Consequently, 'we’ve been holding onto the older airplanes longer,'”
OLDER MACHINES AS IN THE HARRIER JUMP-JET!!
"The air chief expressed optimism about achieving his aims, telling the reporter that, 'If asked by the American people,' Davis could put more F-35Bs into fighting condition 'very, very quickly.'”
"Very, very quickly" get them into the air and test the combat effectiveness of the warplane in real-world conditions. Whatever bugs as exist work them out as you go along.
