Re: They can do some amazing things

Isn't this what happens witih most military systems though? Especially the complex ones.

The only question is, does enough money get invested in fixing them once they're taken into service. Which given the huge numbers of these being bought, is pretty likely.

The original Lightning was great for example. But was shit for serviceability, because you pretty much needed to take an engine out to get to anything else inside the airframe. Meaning that 15 minute maintenance jobs took 10 hours.
