A Game-Changer
The F-35 Lightning II is a fifth-generation fighter developed with the versatility to perform a number of roles. It combines extremely low observability with exemplary network connectivity and numerous sensors providing a wealth of situational information to its pilot. Three types of F-35 exist at the time of writing. Among them is the F-35A, which is deployed by various countries' air arms including the U.S. Air Force and the Japan Air Self Defense Force. This aircraft - dubbed a "game changer" by maker Lockheed Martin - now joins the extensive Tamiya 1/72 scale War Bird Collection!
