Australian Air Force receives three full combat F-35As

Australia has received a new batch of three F-35A strike fighter aircraft from the Lockheed Martin.

These latest aircraft are fitted with the program’s final software system, which unlocks the aircraft’s full war-fighting potential including weapons, mission systems and flight performance. Five more aircraft are scheduled for delivery by the end of 2018.” Defence Minister Senator Marise Payne said.

Australia plans to acquire 72 F-35A conventional take-off and landing aircraft to replace the RAAF’s current fleet of 71 ageing F/A-18A/B Classic Hornets.
