More info:

The Lockheed F-35 Lightning II is a family of single-seat, single-engine, all-weather stealth multirole combat aircraft designed and manufactured by Lockheed Martin. The F-35 is intended to perform both air superiority and strike missions, as well as provide electronic warfare and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities. The F-35 is the result of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program, which aimed to develop a common aircraft platform for the United States Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps, as well as several allied nations.
The F-35 has three main variants: the conventional takeoff and landing F-35A (CTOL), the short takeoff and vertical landing F-35B (STOVL), and the carrier-based F-35C (CV/CATOBAR). The F-35 is one of the most advanced and expensive military aircraft in history, with a projected total program cost of over $1.7 trillion. The F-35 has faced numerous technical challenges, delays, and cost overruns during its development and testing phases. However, the F-35 has also achieved several milestones and demonstrated its capabilities in various operational scenarios. The F-35 is expected to replace or complement several legacy fighter jets in service with the US and its allies, such as the F-16 Fighting Falcon, the F/A-18 Hornet, the AV-8B Harrier II, and the A-10 Thunderbolt II.
