Through a couple anti-ground AA things on it, make it a bit faster and more agile then a MiG and you'll be right.

Besides, they're more used for airstrikes now anyway.

Only because we have not engaged a country with a formidable Air Force in 20 years. I do not recommended having a fleet of F-35s or X-47s to face off against China or Russia or India or Iran.

In the end, it's the pilots who will have to make due with this airplane and its shortcomings. If we have a major conflict where we are in a serious air war, I fear a lot of F-35s will be shot down and when captured US pilots appear on the 11 O'Clock news, there will finally be a public furor over why the government bought such mediocre airplanes.
