OK, the whole concept with the F35, if they can ever get it
all working, is that is is NOT an airplane (singular).
It is a SYSTEM of planes. So, each pilot can see what ALL
the other aircraft in the region see. If one guy spots a
new SAM site, he can mark it, and they ALL now know it is
there. Some F35s can go "dark" and shut off their RADAR
transmitter, and use other aircraft's transmitters to
illuminate their target. All sorts of advanced stuff like
that will make it a formidable system, but it all depends on
a huge amount of software and communications systems to all
