The JSF Joint Strike Fighter program was set up to develop a new fifth-generation all-weather multi-role fighter capable of providing a valid substitute for the current US and NATO ground attack planes. The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II single-seater was born from the project. Equipped with an extraordinary technology it is characterized by the adoption of an aerodynamic lay-out, with stealth characteristics, with a trapezoidal wing. Designed to perform missions of air superiority, close air support and ground attack, its cell can be divided into different 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 afterburner and adjustable downward exhaust nozzle. The extreme operational flexibility, the offensive load that it is able to transport, the on-board technology and the strong innovation of the project, will make the F-35 Lightning II a sure protagonist of the air force of the 21st century.
