    I know that form follows function and that physics forces all stealth aircraft to have similar features but WOW. The front view looks exactly like the F-35C with taller vertical tails. The side view...

    I also don't think that the Marines truly need a light, stealth CAS/attack aircraft when you consider the Marines and their mission alone. However, the need, or at least the benefit of having a...

    This is still just speculation but maybe things were more menacing than "the drone simply stopped responding and then ran out of gas". If this is true, this is a problem for the US. If Iran has...
