Canada has asked Boeing (BA), Lockheed Martin (LMT) and three other companies to provide information about their fighter jets as the country looks to replace its aging fleet of Boeing CF-18 Hornets. The government had said in 2010 that it would buy Lockheed's F-35 planes, but spiraling costs have prompted it to revisit the process. The other contenders are EADS, Saab and Dassault.

    I don't blame the Canadians. The F-35 program is a bloody mess.

    During the most recent conflicts, what other country had a better fighting vehicle than the Bradley. I think you need to show some
    R E S P E C T to our fighting vehicles. I am ashamed after twenty years of military service and being in the 82d Air Borne Division to hear My country had a screwed up fighting vehicle. USA still lead the Free World. Try fighting with out us as the logisticians say from Fort Bragg NC.

    Is not the Lockheed F-35 but the Lockheed, Northrop and BAE F-35 !

     

    Canada could buy the Sukhoi Su-47 Berkut

     

    or more Northrop F/A-18 or drone

     

    (the Boeing F-35 is park at the museum at Patuxent River in MD)
