F-35B AND C LIGHTNING II TRANSITION PLAN

The US Marine Corps procurement of both the F-35B and F-35C variants will provide needed replacements to our aging AV-8B and F/A-18 4th generation aircraft and our EA-6B electronic warfare workhorse. This aircraft will enable the Marine Corps to meet steady-state and contingency requirements.
