“The F-35A will now fire a new, non-explosive fragmenting round of untested accuracy and lethality while the F-35B and F-35C will use the older Navy-developed Semi-Armor Piercing High Explosive Incendiary-Tracer rounds. The program office “determined that the specification requirements for gun accuracy could not be met with the new ammunition planned to be used.”
So the new bullets might not be able to hit anything and/or might not destroy enemy aircraft of ground targets if they do. Yeah this thing will replace the A-10 no problem.
