PACIFIC OCEAN (Nov. 4, 2014) F-35C Lightning II carrier variant Joint Strike Fighters launch from the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN 68) off the coast of San Diego. The launches and recoveries are part of initial at-sea Developmental Testing I (DT-I) for the F-35C, which commenced Nov. 3 and is expected to last two weeks. The F-35C is the carrier variant (CV) of the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter designed for the U.S. Navy as a first-day-of-war, survivable strike fighter complement to the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.

    I would like to see it score in actual combat and hear what the pilots have to say about the performance.

    I have re-evaluated the need for the F-35. The Navy SHOULD get the F-35 C to give stealth capability, as a fighter, to that branch of the armed forces.
