Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) is a development and acquisition program intended to replace a wide range of existing fighter, strike, and ground attack aircraft for the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, The Netherlands and their allies.

Unit Cost:

F-35A: US$153.1 million (flyaway cost, 2013)
F-35B: US$196.5 M (flyaway cost, 2012)
F-35C: US$199.4 M (flyaway cost, 2013)

In providing that solution, the Joint Strike Fighter program has since day one had four program pillars:


All variants of the F-35 will be procured within their target cost range. Operation and support costs will be dramatically reduced.


Air-to-ground precision strikes in all weather air-to-air combat engagements – every F-35 variant will be highly effective in both arenas.


Stealthy, high-performance, supersonic strike fighters – The F-35 successfully integrates the technologies that will make every mission more survivable.


Reliability and maintainability: The F-35 will be setting new standards for both, enabling lower support costs and easier upgrades than legacy aircraft.

 F-35 Inauguration

After a competition between the Boeing X-32 and the Lockheed Martin X-35, a final design was chosen based on the X-35. This is the F-35 Lightning II, which will replace various tactical aircraft, including the US F-16, A-10, F/A-18, AV-8B and British Harrier GR7 & GR9s, and the Canadian CF-18. The projected average annual cost of this program is $12.5 billion with an estimated program life-cycle cost of $1.1 trillion.
Usaha Indonesia dalam Mengembangkan Pesawat Tempur
Indonesia terus berusaha meningkatkan persenjataan militernya, termasuk juga membangung pesawat tempur sendiri. Saat ini Indonesia masih mengandalkan pembelian pesawat tempur dari Rusia yakni Sukhoi 30. 

Vice President Corporate Communication PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PT DI) Sonni Ibrahim mengatakan, sejak 2010 lalu Indonesia sudah mulai merancang pesawat tempur sendiri.

"Indonesia saat ini sudah memulai proses perancangan pesawat tempur. Proyek ini sudah dimulai sejak 2010 lalu," kata Sonni ketika ditemui detikFinance diacara Airshow The 12th Langkawi Internasional Maritime and Exhibition, Malaysia, Kamis (28/3/2013).

Proyek ini merupakan proyek negara dan PT DI sebagai BUMN produsen pesawat ikut berpartisipasi di dalamnya. 

Maju Terus IPTEKS Dirgantara Indonesia

Insha Allah.
