More than a decade in the making, F-35 Lightning program is transforming air defense for the United States and its strategic partners.

These fifth-generation fighters are delivering the versatility and advanced technology to ensure air superiority for decades to come. Offering three variants — the F-35A (conventional takeoff and landing), F-35B (short takeoff and vertical landing), and F-35C (catapult-assisted takeoff arrested recovery) — the single-seat, single-engine aircraft are in demand across the globe.

Thanks to its stealth, advanced sensors and its data fusion with network-enabled operations, the F-35 can establish air dominance through air-to-air, air-to-surface, electronic warfare and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. Boasting production and maintenance across North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia, the F-35 program will deliver more than 3,000 aircraft to change the face of modern air defense.
