Congressional funding cuts to the Joint Strike Fighter program will force an undetermined delay in the Navy’s carrier variant of the aircraft, the F-35C, according to the JSF program office.
The initial operational capability delay is due to the impact of the reduction by Congress in the fiscal year 2009 defense spending act, according to Cheryl Limrick, spokeswoman for the JSF program.
