According the Navy, the F-35C Lightning II "carrier variant” JSF successfully made the flight deck of USS Nimitz's (CVN 68) on Nov. 3rd, 2014. The plane’s backers say its stealth technology will enhance the Navy's attack capabilities. Detractors say it is already outmoded by newer remotely piloted vehicles.
