What I mean is that the plane isn't even in service yet.
Lots of people say it's shit but I have no idea how much they know about military hardware and the plane and how it has been with other planes and what not.
I know there's at least some video on YouTube from at least someone who supposedly should know their shit which say it's bad too but I don't know whatever that's correct or not.
Here in Sweden people made a lot of fun of the JAS-39 since it crashed in Stockholm during and exhibition and there was shirts saying it was the worlds most expensive rooter (rotary cultivator), maybe it have still been expensive but today it seem like enough other countries consider it a good plane at at least more countries are interested in it now when back then (which may seem illogical since then may have been closer to 20 years back.)
I guess chances are the F-35 is a better plane 2020 and maybe in 2040 people will be as comfortable with it as the current planes now.
