        Nope, he's basically correct. Engineers and designers are contracted from poo land and elsewhere to design stuff like this at all levels of aviation. It's the same reasons why the 787 is a failure.

    Its like retards who see this and think its a huge deal have never dealt with airplanes in their lives, let alone military contracting.
    Or were they just supposed to ignore the problem and not doing anything about it, like some sort of corrupt shithole where reporting the problem gets you shot in the head? Instead we get it fixed post haste and the planes return to service within a week.

    Why would F-35's need ejection seats in the first place when they're intended to be used in over the horizon warfare and never be hit?

    Every double seater Rafale was grounded a while ago for ejection seat issues highlighted by some random IT worker who fucked up during a joy ride.

    This shit happens. F-16's, SU-27's, F-15's, F-35's, J-11's.

    The ejection seat defect was traced back to a cause at the factory which has already been fixed. Out of 2700 cartridges tested, only THREE defects were identified. Nevertheless, even one pilot death is too much so the services’ planes underwent groundings to go through all the seats and make sure all defects are fixed. Of course Russia wouldn’t give a shit if it was a 10% failure rate. Chinese would just lie-scam their way through it while the right people are bribed.

    Yes? And? All Eurofighter Typhoons were grounded by the same issue but were back in the air just a day or two later once the seats were checked
