In fact the F35 suffers from serious problems at least at the moment. Then again, I would not call the the next generation fighter, it really indicates that is much better than it is. Its a good plane, but only so for the convenience of the pilot, but can it escape the anti air weapons that are hanging around today, I would say no. I am someone that knows that......oh by the ways the price is not $150m per plane, it is more likely to be around $70m, mostly inflated due to delays.
