Pentagon officials slammed Lockheed Martin Corp’s performance on the $396 billion F-35 fighter jet program and said they would not bail out the program again if problems with the plane’s cutting-edge pilot helmet and software were not resolved.

Deputy F-35 program manager Air Force Major General Christopher Bogdan said on Monday the government’s relationship with Lockheed was the “worst I’ve ever seen” in many years of working on complex acquisition programs.
