Lockheed-Martin F-35 radar-evading stealth Joint Strike Fighter bomber JSF
The F-35 Lockheed-Martin radar-evading stealth Joint Strike Fighter JSF is going to be the military aircraft of the future. It is designed to replace a number of current aircraft including AV-8B Harriers, F-16 Falcon, A-10 Thunderbolt II F/A-18 Hornets, British Sea Harriers and GR.7 Tornado fighters. The US Air Force's F-35A version will be a conventional takeoff and landing airplane costing about $37 million. The British Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and US The Marine Corps F-35B version ($46 million) will be a STOVL short takeoff and vertical landing aircraft. The F-35C Joint Strike Fighter ($48 million) is the US Navy’s carrier-based strike fighter version. The first operational F-35 JSF is due to be delivered in 2008It has a central lift-fan STOVL design powered by the aircraft engine via a clutched driveshaft. Northrop Grumman Corp in California are building the center section of the F35 JSF. BAE systems are building the rear section of the JSF in England and Lockheed Martin Corp are building the rest in Fort Worth. America and Britain are the main partners in this planes development but Holland, Italy, Turkey, Canada, Denmark , Australia, Belgium and Norway are also contributing development money and have agreed to buy the plane. It is expected that it’s service life will last until 2040
The Future Aircraft Carrier (CVF) design will be greatly
determined by the selection of aircraft to fly from the vessel. That process is
now well underway; in 1996, the UK began the formal procurement process to
examine options for a Future Joint Combat Aircraft (FJCA). This project is
required to provide the fleet with a fighter/ attack aircraft to succeed the Sea
Harrier which is currently in service flying from the INVINCIBLE class carriers.
