If you look at the first post the original subject was as to what would be the consequences of the UK cancelling it’s F-35 order due to defence cuts - not the entire program being cancelled.

I would suggest that while the original tranche of 48 seem secure, the question of whether the entire planned purchase of around 140 will occur is still moot - particularly since the present defence minister seems to be leaning towards additional Typhoon, presumably for the same defence review/cost reasons.

The title would therefore still seem apt - if parochial......
