JSF and the Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Turkey

  • Bert Chapman
Chapter

Abstract

This chapter summarizes work findings stressing the JSF’s economic cost, the complexity of US defense acquisition policy, and the global extent of the JSF’s industrial base. This chapter contends that China and Russia are modernizing their jet fighter fleets and seeking to keep the United States and its allies from having access to the skies in geographically contingent regions. This chapter emphasizes the increasing age of the US jet fighter fleet, documents positive performance attributes of the JSF by an international variety of pilots, stresses that there are combat missions which can be performed only by piloted military aircraft instead of UAVs, urges the United States to revitalize its Defense Science and Technology industrial base against emerging international technological expertise, and advocates that the United States and its allies continue deploying the JSF to address emerging international military aerospace threats.
