F-35B Tests Aboard the USS Wasp


10/06/2011 This video shows some of the tests aboard the USS Wasp by the F-35B.  The F35-B will have an incorporated EW capability in the cockpit. This will be first time that the Amphibious Fleet will have an EW capability.  Indeed, the deployment of the B aboard the ARG will allow the Carrier Battle Group to use its F-18s closer to the action and to protect these assets.  An interesting role reversal in naval aviation history.
