The F-35C Lightning II (F-35 Lightning II in handheld games) is a stealth multirole aircraft.

It made its debut in Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War.

History

Strangereal

Compared to its carrier stablemates like the F-14 and F/A-18, the F-35C has seen limited operations throughout the various conflicts of Strangereal. However, the aircraft possesses stealth technology like the F-22A Raptor and also offers high agility which favorably compares to newer fighters. It is unknown when the F-35C was introduced or if it predates the F-22, but the earliest examples were sighted during the 1995 Belkan War.

F-35Cs were utilized by the Belkan Air Force against the Allied Forces on multiple occasions throughout the Belkan War.

A sole F-35C saw action, operated by the Usean Rebel Forces, during the 1998 Usean Continental War. The pilot was the ace "Superfly".[1]

F-35Cs operating from the Scinfaxi and Hrimfaxi were used to combat Osean forces in the 2010 Circum-Pacific War. All were destroyed by the OADF's Wardog Squadron. These YAF airframes sported a dark blue splinter camo.[2]

By 2020, additional aircraft were operated by Leasath, sporadically combating Aurelian forces.

Joint Assault universe

An F-35C was used by the Valahia during the Golden Axe Plan. The pilot was the ace "Vulcan".[3]
