12. oh, they work, all right. Just not as planned.

Too easy to shoot down, too expensive to maintain, too likely to smother the pilot and cause asphyxia, too fragile for war zones, too fast for close encounter battles, too heavy to meet the original specs for flight length (they had to change the specs in order to be able to order the beast).

In war game simulations, a rogue USAF commander decided to use his own tactics, rather than the "predicted and approved approach from Russian and Chinese forces" and totally screwed up the US side. Luckily, our enemies will follow the plans we lay out for them, and not come up with something creative. Enemies do that, don't they?
