Reuters: "U.S. General Confident F-35 Logistics System Will Work Overseas"

"The computerized logistics system that controls the Lockheed Martin Corp F-35 fighter jet still needs work, but it will be able to support three F-35s on their first overseas trip for two UK air shows this summer, a top Pentagon official said.

U.S. Marine Corps Lieutenant General Robert Schmidle, deputy director of the Pentagon's Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation office, said he was "very confident" the F-35 logistics system would work when the new U.S. warplane makes its international debut in July."

I always get suspicious when senior officers say they are confident something will work, makes me more confident that it won't!

Same here, particularly when it seems to depend on an almost permanent data-link. I suspect that the afloat support stock will still be provisioned by traditional means.
