F-35s around the world began to rapidly degrade F135 engines

F-35s around the world began to rapidly degrade engines. Currently, the engines of 46 fighters (15 percent) of the fifth generation F-35 Lightning II of the US Armed Forces were not working, The Drive notes.

The reason for this was the rapid wear of the heat-protective coating (degradation of calcium-magnesium aluminosilicate) of the rotor blades of the F135 power plant.
