Abstract:

The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Aircraft F-35 Program will develop and field an affordable, highly common family of next-generation strike aircraft for the United States U.S. Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and allies. The three variants are the F-35A F-35B and the F-35C. The F-35A will be a stealthy multi-role aircraft, primarily air-to-ground, for the Air Force to replace the F-16 and A-10 and complement the F-22. The F-35B variant will be a multi-role strike fighter aircraft to replace the AV-8B and FA-18ACD for the Marine Corps. The F-35C will provide the U.S. Navy a multi-role, stealthy strike fighter aircraft to complement the FA-18EF. The planned DoD F-35 Fleet will replace the joint services legacy fleets. The transition from multiple typemodelseries to a common platform will result in a smaller total force over time and operational and overall cost efficiencies.
