BF-117 (169796) delivery from NAS Fort Worth on June 10, 2021.

Unfortunately NAS Fort Worths TWR radio is having difficulty so could not understand the clearance. I assume this went to Yuma as I followed it from FW CTR to CTR headed west.

1.
Simply type "19-5454" to "USAF 1948-present" database of Scramble.nl (main server of this message board) and see the status:
19-5454 - AF282 - On Ordered - USAF

If you have any concrete data which CORRECT the Scramble.nl's database please show us and we can reorient ourselves.

2.
All LOTS are LRIP phases. You can use both Lot and LRIP terms.
Lot-15 will be FRP and you can say Lot-15 or FRP-15 if you want.
Yours

Cheers

I advise you not to copy and paste information that you do not know about its correctness

About the differences between LRIP / Lot ... I had already explained them some time ago

Swiss - Air2030: Federal Council decides to procure 36 F-35A fighter aircraft
Bern, 30.06.2021 -

The Federal Council is set to propose that Parliament approve the procurement of 36 F-35A fighter aircraft from US manufacturer Lockheed Martin and five Patriot fire units from US manufacturer Raytheon. An evaluation has revealed that these two systems offer the highest overall benefit at the lowest overall cost. The Federal Council is confident that these two systems are the most suitable for protecting the Swiss population from air threats in the future. The Federal Council took the decision at its meeting on 30 June.
