Reference News Network reported on January 10 that the US military website reported on January 4 that the U.S. Navy is about to usher in a milestone - the F-35C fighter plane will be able to fight next month.
She said that although the official date had not yet been announced, the work was still on schedule.
According to the plan, the 147th Attack Fighter Squadron will be the first F-35C Squadron put into use by the U.S. Navy. Once the initial combat capability is ready, the 147 attack fighter fleet will be deployed on the Carl Vinson for the first time in 221.
The report quoted the F-35 Joint Project Office and the aircraft manufacturer Lockheed Martin Corp. as saying on December 6, 2018 that all three F-35 models of the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps will be field tested to determine the operational effectiveness and adaptability of weapon systems.
