Ultra Technological F-35 in Action • Vertical Takeoff & Refueling

maryjennifer6659
The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is a family of single-seat, single-engine, all-weather stealth multirole fighters undergoing final development and testing by the United States. The fifth generation combat aircraft is designed to perform ground attack and air defense missions. The F-35 has three main models: the F-35A conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) variant, the F-35B short take-off and vertical-landing (STOVL) variant, and the F-35C carrier-based Catapult Assisted Take-Off But Arrested Recovery (CATOBAR) variant.\r

● F-35A, conventional take off and landing (CTOL) variant.\r
● F-35B, short-take off and vertical-landing (STOVL) variant.\r
● F-35C, carrier-based CATOBAR (CV) variant.\r

The F-35 does not need to be physically pointing at its target for weapons to be successful. Sensors can track and target a nearby aircraft from any orientation, provide the information to the pilot through their helmet (and therefore visible no matter which way the pilot is looking), and provide the seeker-head of a missile with sufficient information. Recent missile types provide a much greater ability to pursue a target regardless of the launch orientation, called High Off-Boresight capability. Sensors use combined radio frequency and infra red (SAIRST) to continually track nearby aircraft while the pilots helmet-mounted display system (HMDS) displays and selects targets; the helmet system replaces the display-suite-mounted head-up display used in earlier fighters. Each helmet costs $400,000.\r
