    True, but Razak didn't have the power Erdogan has today...

    Back to the F-35: the spare parts control software is still giving headaches. Big ones.

    Sounds like it's less of an issue with the software than suppliers that are unable to keep up with the demand. New build F-35s probably get priority, especially if all the little guys are contracting with Lockheed rather than DOD. With the ever expanding production lines in Fort Worth, there may not be much excess capacity to produce spares.

    That's an issue across all military aircraft.
