    So why do we need a gun pod when it is supposed to have an internal gun. Another stop gap.

    Testing the gun pod is part of showing that the F-35 can do close air support which I think is a stupid idea. The A-10 is best!

    So how does the stealth deal work with a gun pod hanging down, seems like it defeats the purpose?

    So....that emptied the entire gun. What, it carries 2 seconds of ammo? Little discussed fact as to the actual number of rounds carried. Is that a State Secret? Compare it to the F-4, the F-14, the F-15, the F-16, the F-22, the A-10, the F-105, the F-111 (2,000 !! rds)
