A fifth generation fighter aircraft, Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II offers the U.S military advanced stealth along with network-enabled operations, fighter speed and agility, advanced support and completely amalgamated sensor information. The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is available in three different types. The three Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II types are meant for the three main factions of the U.S military i.e. the army, the navy, and the air force. Each faction is assigned a different Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II type.
The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II type assigned to the U.S Air Force will replace the F-16 and A-10, the F-35 Lightning II type assigned to the U.S Navy will replace the F/A-18 and the Lightning II type assigned to the U.S Marine Corps will replace the AV-8B. Why is the U.S military replacing its old fighter aircrafts with the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II? There are many reasons for this. However, we’re going to look at some of the primary ones.
A single seat and single engine fighter aircraft, the lightning II encompasses advanced sensors built into the aircraft. The lightning II is designed for a variety of missions including electronic attack, reconnaissance, surveillance and intelligence missions. Previously, each of these missions required a different aircraft. However, the inception of Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II has changed all that. Now, missions of all kind can be carried out using a single aircraft: the F-35 Lightning II.
When it comes to U.S military aviation, the F-35’s stealth capabilities are unrivalled. The stealth features of the F-35 are optimized by advanced materials and an integrated airframe design. The superior advantages that the F-35 has over other aircrafts are showcased by its stealth power, electronic attack capabilities, advanced countermeasures, data fusion, and sophisticated sensors.
The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II performs in a unique manner. The factors that contribute to this performance are the F-35’s state of the art manufacturing processes, immersed mission systems sensors, internal weapons and fuel carriage and external shape.
An international team of leading aerospace companies develop, produce, and support the Martin F-35 Lightning II. This makes it easy to understand why the F-35 Lightning II is head and shoulders above other fighter aircrafts. In short, compared to the other fighter aircrafts, the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II provides the U.S military greater access and survivability in times of conventional warfare. Therefore, it’s a preferred choice!
