Team Trump does it again. Lowest Price tag in History of the F-35
quote:

The Pentagon and Lockheed Martin have reached a “handshake agreement” that will bring the price of a basic model F-35 joint strike fighter below $80 million a plane, the lowest price tag in the long history of the most expensive weapons program ever.

“This is a historic milestone for the F-35 Enterprise, and marks the largest procurement in the history of the Department,” said Ellen Lord, the Pentagon’s under secretary for acquisition and sustainment.

“I am proud to state that this agreement has achieved an estimated 8.8 percent savings from Lot 11 to Lot 12 F-35As,”


Damn Trump!!!

Remember when F-14s cost in the neighborhood of $20 mil and were about impossible to crash*? Good times.

Yeah right. He campaigned on the military being overcharged by contractors for equipment and how he was going to negotiate better deals, but this has nothing to do with him?

Do you liberals appreciate how stupid you look when you post crap like that outside your bubble?

Obviously not

It has everything to do with Trump. Had you not been so full of hate and paid attention to more than CNN, you would know what happened and all that he has done.


He actually campaigned on that. He actually MET with Lockhead as President elect and HERE is what happened at that meeting:

LINK

quote:

Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson emerged from a meeting with President-elect Donald Trump Friday pledging to bring down the cost of the F-35 Lightning II and promising to hire more than 1,800 additional workers in Fort Worth.



And the article outlines the push:

quote:

Her comments were the latest in a dogfight initiated by Trump, who has questioned the F-35’s costs and capabilities. Last month he went on Twitter to say that the stealth fighter program was “out of control” and threatening to seek a new bid for a comparable F-18 Hornet built by Boeing as an alternative. “We had the opportunity to talk to him about the F-35 program and I certainly share his views that we need to get the best capability to our men and women in uniform and we have to get it at the lowest possible price,” Hewson told the press standing in the lobby of the Trump Tower in Manhattan.



So again... If you would actually remove the hate blinding your eyes you would see a little more clearly

Like I told him. Spend more time actually looking at actions vs what CNN is telling him!

It’s almost like we have someone with some business sense in the White House.

Trump isn’t owned by anyone! That’s why he can do wut the frick he wants for our blessed country. He gives the middle finger to K Street, the Washington Cuck establishment, and the media. Cat funded his own campaign.

Y’all realize I’m a conservative that voted for Trump, right? But no, anyone that disagrees with y’all must be a liberal blinded by hate that’s brainwashed by CNN. Y’all sound so fricking dumb when you say that.

F-35 costs were going down by a ton whether Trump was in office or not. Now did his administration likely make things smoother? Sure I’ll give you that. But his Super Hornet shite was laughed at by anyone with a brain. 35 is the future fighter every branch of our armed forces and is being produced in MASSIVE numbers. Economies of scale.

People disagreed with what at face value was a stupid post on your part. If there was way more to the story that would substantiated your post, you should have expanded on your thoughts

As written. You sounded like a liberal douche.

Hopefully that is not the case in reality

It’s not a stupid post if it’s true.

It’s not like the per unit cost of the 35 was ever gonna go up. Anyone who’s remotely familiar with JSF and the 35 knows that. Trump or no Trump the cost has been going down due to how many airframes are being manufactured.

I only sounded like a liberal douche because that’s immediately what y’all think of when someone disagrees with y’all. Sad af.

While I upvoted, I’d argue about folks laughing at additional F-18’s. Regardless of the PNUC of F-35’s, in LRIP or not, their operating cost per hour is still outrageous. Barring a clash with a first rate power, the F-35’s capabilities aren’t unique and while role consolidation has many warfighting and cost saving implications for the future, the JSF is just one of the myriad of airframes the Air Force needs to upgrade. It’s one outstanding benefit is that it’s here now.
