The F-35, the 5th generation stealthy fighter is already known as a game changer. The leap forward makes the plane so much more versatile thats why its already known as game changer.
Not only for the Lightning II but also for allied planes like the F-15, F-16 or other fighters or fighter bombers. The advanced cockpit and its sensors can spot enemies far before the enemy sees them. This information can be shared with other planes and can help them to find targets and attack without being close like they normally have te be.
The F-35 will be the new backbone of many Western Airforces and replace for example the F-16 and F-18.
