F-35 Weaponry

Evolving threats make air superiority more important than ever. And only the F-35 can provide the United States and allied forces around the world with the strength needed to defeat threats while maintaining unmatched situational awareness.

In stealth mode, the F-35 can infiltrate enemy territory that other fighters can’t, carrying 5,000 pounds of internal ordnance. Once air dominance is established, the F-35 converts to beast mode, carrying up to 18,000 pounds of combined internal and external weapons, to return to the battle to finish the fight. The F-35’s weapons load capabilities include:

Air-to-Air

  • AIM-9X Sidewinder
  • AIM-120 AMRAAM
  • GAU-22/A Gun (CTOL Internal / STOVL and CV Missionized Gun Pod)

Air-to-Surface

  • AIM-120 AMRAAM
  • GBU-31 JDAM
  • AIM-9X Sidewinder
