But F-35 still remains an overhyped expensive toy full of bugs.
And, by the way, the Russian S-400 / S-500 make its supposedly
advanced stealth features largely purposeless.

F-35 Plagued with Problems, Poles Dump It

To recap: The aircraft has major issues with reliability and that makes
the service life of the airplane considerably below first reports. For
example, the U.S. Marines bought the F-35B variant. It was advertised
to have an 8,000-hour service life. Realistically it now appears that
it will be closer to 2,100 or lower.

Maintenance? The goal of hitting 80 percent of field metrics standards
is not being met. Known cyber issues with the plane remain unresolved.
There are myriad other problems both large and small with the F-35.

The problems are so prevalent and pronounced that the Polish Ministry
of Defense late last month opted out of the F-35 program entirely. ..
The latest twist to this saga could happen early next week, as rumors
fly in D.C. and the Pentagon that other NATO Eastern European members
such as the Czech Republic, Romania, and perhaps even the Germans will
follow suit and drop out of the F-35 program. .. Right now the F-35 is
riddled with enough defects to make it the wrong choice to quarterback
our air fleet. If the United States Air Force does use it as such then
our air crews across the globe could pay a very high price for that
very risky decision.
