    Keep in mind that the issues raised are ALL SOFTWARE related and have NOTHING to do with the aircraft itself. The Gun problem stated was in 2018 and according to the latest reports all shooting and accuracy deficiencies have been corrected. The annual assessment by Robert Behler, the Defense Department’s director of operational test and evaluation, doesn’t disclose any major new failings in the plane’s flying capabilities. Maintenance issues are being resolved with the introduction of a new program.
