It would be interesting to see both the A-10 and the F-35 in the same role/theatre.  Probably a pretty good combo.

My guess is that the A10 will be replaced by the Super Tucano for low-threat areas, and the F35 for high-AA-threat areas.

I found it interesting that the author of the article noted the same issues that several of our members here have noted.

A bit of a chuckle... The article asks, regarding the F-35: “To what extent could it keep flying in the event that major components, such as engines or fuselage were destroyed in war?”

It could keep flying all the way to the ground.

(and no, hovering over a war zone, waiting for a target, is not an option).
