agility. There are three variants; F-35A, B and C. The F-35A CTOL (Conventional Take Off and
Landing) and has four internal weapons stations in two weapons bays plus three optional
external weapons stations. The F-35B STOVL (Short Take Off Vertical Landing) variant while the

USN and the F/A-18 and AV-8B Harrier for the USMC.

NAS Patuxent River and began evaluations by VX-23, the USN fighter test center. During August
2013 the aircraft went for Developmental Test Phase II onboard USS Wasp. In September 2014

The USMC plans to replace their F/A-18, AV-8B and EA-6B with the new Lockheed Martin F-35B 
Lightning II. On March 18, 2010 at Air Station Patuxent River, Maryland’s Integrated Test Force 
(ITF) from Air Test and Evaluation Squadron (VX) 23 the first F-35B prototype BF-01 lifted off with 
the runway using less than 1000 feet and only 80 knots of speed. After 13 minutes of flight BF-01 
used its 41,000 pounds of thrust to hover 150 feet above the ground and then slowly descend to 
a successful first vertical landing.
