It is to be noted that LM do not archive these PDFs so it will be best for this forum to archive them here as necessary. Tah.

Anyone have the SARs from before 2009? especially interested in 2003, 2005 and 2007

Edit: Nevermind, got the more barebones versions from here http://www.acq.osd.mil/ara/am/sar/

Edit: Based on SAR made this http://i.imgur.com/gTCvwX4.png and this is also one i made a while back http://imgur.com/PgFiDY9 showing economy of scales, that the pushback in LRIP shifted the support cost increase to delayed years and URF, UNRF and UNRF + Support differences or if that's too much information just the FY2015 SAR http://imgur.com/Ewzq5jk

Edit: Including URF prices from 2001+ http://i.imgur.com/Xyrx9Lz.png

Cheers Spudman!

Lotsa fun things to note in the first doc at the link. I'll start with the CTOL 1K# weapon vice the 2K# weapon now specified.

Anyone have the document for this

DOTE 2014 Live Fire Test and Evaluation
F-35B Full-Scale Structural System Vulnerability Assessment

AAA and missile fragment-induced damage stressed
the structural limitations of the forward fuselage fuel
tanks (F-1 and F-2). Cascading effects from the F-1 tank
damage included a large fuel release into the cockpit and
damage to the pilot seat mounting structure. To mitigate
the vulnerability to the pilot, the Program Office has
recently altered the F-35B fuel burn strategy so that the
F-1 tank behind the pilot empties sooner. Threat-induced
damage in these fuel tank tests also caused large fuel
discharge into the engine inlet, which would have likely
caused engine failures due to fuel ingestion. The engine
was not installed for these tests.
