The US Marine Corps’ USS Wasp amphibious assault ship and a squadron of F-35B “jump” jets joined the US Navy’s 7th Fleet last Saturday, marking the first time the fifth-generation jet has been deployed on a moving US vessel.


The F-35 is sometimes described as a "flying computer" that may be more important for relaying mission critical information and data — and even potentially helping the ballistic missile defense apparatus — than dropping payloads on targets.
