Interesting how back in 2011 the top DOD tester--in an FOUO report--states survivability is a concern for the F-35 yet we have a DOD public consumption publication that paints a different picture. For your convenience it is at the end of this post.
It says some good things about the shoot-up of AA-1. Of interest though, AA-1 was not a production representative F-35.
Is there hidden test language? Look at the manner in which fire risks are mentioned.
I do wonder about a recent photo showing an F-35A (a real production representative one) with "weapons" refueling from a KC-10 tanker. Hint: they were not "weapons" but test shapes.
In any event, look at the IPP exhaust and where it is located in this photo. Look under the star. An IR homing missile would like that.
Take out the IPP and well, that ends the flight.
The IPP exhaust on the old AA-1 is located in a different place.
