Is JSF same as F-35?
The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF), also called the Lightning II, is a strike fighter airplane being procured in different versions for the Air Force, Marine Corps, and Navy. The F-35 program is DOD’s largest weapon procurement program in terms of total estimated acquisition cost.
What are the three variants of the F-35?
The F-35 family includes three variants — all single-seat jets. The F-35A conventional takeoff and landing variant, the F-35B short takeoff/vertical landing variant, and the F-35C carrier variant. All three variants have similar performance characteristics and the exact same advanced avionics.
What is the difference between F-35A and F-35B?
The primary difference between the two jets is that the B is less nimble in general. There is a multitude of reasons for this, many of which stem from the necessity for the B to have VSTOL capability. The B variant is considerably “fatter” and bulkier than the F-35A as a result of the integration of the lift fan.
How much does the F-35 JSF cost?
At $78 million the fifth-generation F-35A’s unit cost compares favorably to the latest non-stealth 4.5-generation Western fighter. The Rafale, Typhoon, Gripen-E and F-15EX are more expensive at $85 to $100 million apiece.
