Dodgy software will bork America's F-35 fighters until at least 2019

Basically the Spit was designed as an interceptor: light, relatively fragile, but could do damage appropriately. Hurrys were designed as more versatile vehicles: they could intercept (at slower rate), but they were far more effective as ground attack or bomber attack due to their higher durability

The relative production rate didn't hurt either..
