Definitely, when it doesn't want to… According to the Bloomberg.com site, the tests concerning the precision of the 25mm gun on board the F35A, the version intended for the US Air Force and the majority of the countries acquiring the Lockheed-Martin device, would have given "unacceptable" results, in particular when air-to-ground fire. And as if that were not enough, the barrel support would show cracks, also called jacks in aeronautics, following the use of the barrel. Note that the F35B vertical take-off and F35C versions on board an aircraft carrier do not have this defect.
