The F-35B is part of the aircraft series of stealth fighter planes developed by Lockheed Martin in response to the Joint Strike Fighter program. The F-25B Lightning II, together with the F-35A and the F-35C, are expected to continue to dominate US squadrons by being one of the main aircraft to be used in ground attack and reconnaissance missions. From the three main variants, the B-model is the short take-off and vertical-landing model or STOVL. The F-35B is equipped with the Rolls-Royce Lift System which is similar to the system used by the recognized Yak-141 and the VJ 101D/E. It is said that two engines are prospected to be used for the plane, which are: the Pratt & Whitney F135 and the General Electric F136. Either way, the aircraft is expected to achieve a good speed figure as the F135 recorded a maximum thrust of more 220kN during tests while the F-136 is claimed to produce 190kN. But of course, it is preferred to have the F135 as its thrust makes it one of the most powerful engine to be every installed on a fighter plane.
