F-35B Lightning IIs which have a capability to do vertical landing and take-off landed for the fist time on a mphibious assault ship USS Wasp in pacific ocean on Sunday and Monday ,Stars and Stripes reported.
The exact location and the exact number of fighters involved was not disclosed, but a U.S. Navy press release said the “historic deployment” marked a new era of “up-gunned” naval capability.
“Pairing F-35B Lightning IIs with the Wasp represents one of the most significant leaps in warfighting capability for the Navy-Marine Corps team in our lifetime,” Rear Adm. Brad Cooper, Task Force 76 commander, said in a statement. “This fifth generation stealth jet is extremely versatile and will greatly enhance and expand our operational capabilities.”
“This is a historic deployment,” Col. Tye Wallace, 31st MEU commander, said in the statement. “The F-35B is the most capable aircraft ever to support a Marine rifleman on the ground.”
