F-35s become so unpredictable at top speeds that pilots fear they would be unusable in dogfights, new documents reveal

F-35 fighter jets used by the US Navy and Marine forces are so unpredictable at top speeds that pilots fear they would be unusable in dogfights, new documents reveal.

Pilots have reported erratic handling when approaching max performance including unpredictable changes in pitch and rolling motions — both of which are considered a 'category 1 deficiency', the most serious type of deficiency.
