The F-35 is a multi role stealth fighter designed to supplement fighters like the F-16 and Harrier. The A model is the standard land based version, the B is the VTOL version that is to replaced the Harrier and the C is the naval version for catapult equipped aircraft carriers. The first squadron of the B model was a USMC unit, operational in 2015 and the USAF's first squadron of A's was operational in 2016. The F-35 will also be used by the UK, Australia, Canada, Italy, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands and Turkey and possibly others. They are all single seat and single engine (except for the B, which also has a lifting engine) and are capable of Mach 1.6. They carry an internal 25mm cannon and have a weapons bay which can carry a wide variety of air to air and air to ground guided weapons. They can also carry further ordnance under the wings on pylons like regular fighter aircraft.
