Could One of America's Allies Take Down the F-35 Program?
What does America need to save its troubled F-35 stealth fighter?Turkey, thats what.Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan recently warned that the multinational F-35 program, of which Turkey is a member, would fail if Turkey were excluded. Turkey is facing sanctions, including being dropped from the F-35 program if it goes ahead with purchasing Russias S-400 anti-aircraft missile system, which has raised Washingtons fears that F-35 secrets might be leaked to Russia. The U.S. has stopped shipping equipment to Turkey for that nations planned purchase of 100 F-35s, while the first two aircraft officially delivered to Turkey are still in the United States.For its part, Ankara is adamant that it has a right to purchase both American stealth fighters and Russian anti-aircraft missiles, despite the fact that the S-400 is one of the most likely Russian weapons to be used against the F-35. We were surely not going to remain silent against our right to self-defense being disregarded and attempts to hit us where it hurts, Erdogan said at a Turkish defense trade show. This is the kind of process that is behind the S-400 agreement we reached with Russia.Nowadays, we are being subject to a similar injustice - or rather an imposition - on the F-35s ...
