I guess I'll best understand it all AT THE END when everything is 'done & dusted' (or not). I'll listen for howls in the night.

Good for you. Weasels won't live long enough to see the F-35 done and dusted. I'm settling now for claps at 7.

These GAO docs/PDFs/MP3 first posted in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=60&t=56971&p=439770&hilit=negotiated#p439770
Actions Needed to Address Manufacturing and Modernization Risks
12 May 2020 GAO-20-339

"FAST FACTS
The F-35 program produced more aircraft and negotiated lower prices in 2019. However, the program is not meeting standards aimed at ensuring consistent, high-quality products, and fielded aircraft do not meet reliability goals.

Also, the cost to modernize aircraft systems went up about $1.5 billion (14%) since the program’s May 2019 annual report to Congress. Due to development delays, this reporting requirement will expire before the effort is complete. We suggest Congress consider extending it.

We made 5 recommendations, including some to help the Defense Department make its modernization cost estimate more comprehensive and credible."
