The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is an American family of single-seat, single-engine, all-weather stealth multirole combat aircraft that is intended to perform both air superiority and strike missions. It is also able to provide electronic warfare and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities. Lockheed Martin is the prime F-35 contractor, with principal partners Northrop Grumman and BAE Systems. The aircraft has three main variants: the conventional takeoff and landing F-35A (CTOL), the short take-off and vertical-landing F-35B (STOVL), and the carrier-based F-35C (CV/CATOBAR). Primary Role: Stealth Multirole Fighter.
In September 2018 VMFA-211 was deployed aboard the U.S. Navy Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS Essex. On the 28th of the month an F-35B carried out a strike against Afghan Taliban. This marked the first time a U.S. F-35 was used in combat when it delivered a precision-guided bomb. The aircraft wore the name Lt. Col. Chris ˘Otis÷ Raible on the side under the cockpit to honor the former commander of VMFA-211 killed in Afghanistan in 2012. Later in 2018 mission markings were applied to F-35B 169415Ăs front landing gear door.
