I guess we'll know how far the 2017 date is going to move to the right, by next year, when they finally get to CDR.


2017 is solid with a large amount of margin. You said "going to slip" as a statement of fact, when it's not, at all.

Your right of course... As they say down south, their words are not strong- ei totally truthful... Fair amount of fudge factor going on... Giving the best possible face on the outcome... So they got x dollars less this year, and say it was not needed to stay on schedule and would have been would have waste... Where is the truth?? We can only watch and hope for the best..

No, you're both wrong ;)

They don't slip launch dates at CDRs. PMRs slip schedules - just like they did with CxP - but there's no sign of a slip.

Cleaned the thread up a bit as this isn't about F-16s etc. Probably a good point to lock it as I'm not sure how we've managed to have a large thread based on someone's opinion when they have no relevance to the subject.
