USMC cutting the number of F-35s...

The Lockheed Martin F-35B/C would suffer its first programme of record reduction in its history.

“The Marine Corps will reduce the Primary Aircraft Authorized per squadron of F-35B and C aircraft from 16 to 10,” says the USMC.
The Marine Corps had planned to buy a total of 420 F-35s (353 F-35Bs and 67 F35Cs) by 2031. The service did not respond to request for details on how much its programme of record would be cut, but Cancian says the reduction numbers can be inferred.

“This would imply buying about 120 to 130 aircraft fewer,” he says.
