The JSF Joint Strike Fighter program was set to develop a new fifth-generation all-weather multi-role fighter capable of being a valid replacement for the current ground attack aircraft of the United States and NATO countries. The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II single-seat aircraft was born from the project. Equipped with extraordinary technology, it is characterized by the adoption of an aerodynamic layout, with stealth characteristics, with a trapezoidal wing. Designed to carry out air superiority missions, close air support, and ground attacks, its airframe is available in various configurations. The F-35B thanks to its STOVL capabilities was designed for vertical landing and take-off and to operate from aircraft carriers such as the Queen Elizabeth of the Royal Navy or the Cavour of the Italian Navy. Also used by the Marine Corps, it is characterized by the adoption of the Pratt & Whitney engine with an afterburner and downward swiveling exhaust nozzle. The extreme operational flexibility, the offensive load that it is capable of transporting, the on-board technology, and the strong innovation of the project, will make the F-35 Lightning II a sure protagonist of the 21st-century air force.
