    Kind of surprised they don't just import legit armored vehicles. I mean they import large shipments of Fentanyl from China. Couldn't be all that hard to get some APCs that happened to 'fall of a truck' in some Asian country.....

      Getting an APC is likely not the biggest obstacle. The biggest problem is keeping it operational, without a steady stream of replacement parts from official sources. The cartels could steal an F-35, only to see it inoperational after a couple of hours flight due to some system falling into disrepair.

        Lots of laid-off F-35 pilots seek employment with the cartels but no mechanics?

          Given the number of different special qualifications needed to work on a single aircraft, entire crews would need to be recruited by the cartels. And, the special parts needed by the aircraft would still be difficult to acquire. Even the real military does not stockpile massive quantities of spare parts and prefers, in many cases, to use just-in-time supply chains when ordering parts.

          If you look back at all those F-22 planes destroyed in the storm a few years ago, you will see that about 20% of the birds were down so badly that they couldn't even be quickly and easily flown away from the base to safety; all this with a fully staffed and equipped base with secure supply chains.

            Actually, you'd be surprised how common many parts for older military vehicles are. It largely depends on what you buy though, but most of the more common US, Commonwealth, and Soviet vehicles are not too difficult to find parts for.
