Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II won the Joint Strike Fighter Program (JSF) to supply the US Air Force, Marines & Navy with a future fighter for their services. After a series of test flights and improvements, the X-35 entered military service in the name of the F-35. Unlike the F-22 air superiority fighter exclusively used by the USAF, the F-35 has a conventional take-off and landing (CTOL) variant, the F-35A, a variant for large aircraft carriers, the F-35C and a short take-off and vertical landing (STOVL) variant for small aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships, the F-35B.
The F-35 not only serves in the USAF, the US Navy, and the Marines but also becomes the standard fourth-generation fighter of many US allies. Thanks to the large order quantity, its unit cost has dropped dramatically. Developed about 10 years after the F-22 project, the F-35 has used advanced electronic equipment, which makes it play a more important role in digital warfare.
