The F-35 promised payload vs the reality...

Thanks to BlackTail for the pic!

Even worse than what you see above is the reality that we're facing as 2019 comes to a close.

Many of the weapons that were promised for clearance by now still aren't.  Won't be till mid 2020's at best.

In short?

Our most advanced fighter is currently payload limited which means that it's target limited.

It might have the new car smell but its less capable against a range of targets than a long retired A-7D!
