If your a nation swapping Tornado's, Harriers or F/A-18S for F-35s then your getting a enhanced capability, but if its a swap for F-16s and A-10s then its certainly a enhancement of some capability for the price of degradation of some other capabilities.

So for the US Navy, US Marines, and the Royal Air Force its a no brainer, thus hard to see a need for corporate corruption there. Perhaps some Deep Throat in the USAF acquisitions office could confirm your suspicions, or more likely direct you to your local Congressman
