The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter has been hailed as the ‘most expensive weapon in history’, costing $400bn.

‘Despite being among the most technologically advanced low-observable warplanes on the planet, the Lockheed Martin F-35 has one significant shortcoming,’ it wrote.

‘The Joint Strike Fighter cannot strike moving ground targets using the targeting system and weapons loadout delivered in its final combat Lightning II configuration, Block 3F.’

The jet has gone through dozens of updates to its software, with the Block 3F being the most recent.
