F-35 Lightning II or Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) is an aircraft project involving several nations, and which is still under development. Many country have joined the project and contributed both capital and technology.
The F-35A is the "normal" version: CTOL (Conventional Take-Off and Landing). It has an internal 25 mm gatlingkanon using boom and receptacle -lufttankning as a starting point. This version will be used by the US Air Force, the Canadian, Norwegian and many other air forces, including the Air Force, in the event that Denmark chose the Joint Strike Fighter.
