    One of their B-2s slammed itself into the dirt because some pitot tube got moisture in them. Yes, US planes are that fragile - very capable machines but fragile. Which is doubly amusing because the current trends of supply chain and personnel issues plus increasing technical complexities of aircraft won't lend well to the continued operation of their aircrafts either.

    The quality of the military personnel is steadily declining.
    That is the biggest issue here.
    Try to find some inside military studies for that matter, it gives a mind-blowing picture.
    Remember reading about the USN personnel once.
    Some of the staff were revealed as non-English speaking, and some illiteracy cases were revealed as well.
    It is a sad picture of dying hegemony, all along and with multiple aspects...
