 Lockheed-Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Analysis 2002
Given that the maritime users of the Joint Strike Fighter do not have an F-22 equivalent to gain the high ground in an air battle, it is not inconceivable that we might see downstream disagreements in the Joint Strike Fighter program as these players try to fill this crucial gap in their basic capabilities.
If the Joint Strike Fighter were to be too snappy a performer in the air superiority game, the F-22 would have been promptly axed thereby shifting USD 20B or more of production costs back by at least a decade much to the delight of vote buyers in the US Congress.
The Joint Strike Fighter is a most curious blend of the F-22 technology base, state-of-the-art avionics and Cold War era strategic thinking - in its own way as much a Cold War anachronism as the Eurocanards.

 F-35 Joint Strike Fighter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) is a military fighter aircraft designed by the United States and the United Kingdom.
It will be a multi-role strike fighter (a plane with a strong emphasis on close air support and tactical bombing as well as being capable of air-to-air combat), and will use stealth technology.
It is intended to replace the current generation of strike fighters, particularly the vertical take off and landing (VTOL) Harrier jump jets : the AV-8 Harrier II (US), Harrier GR7/9 (UK), and the Sea Harrier (UK), along with the conventional A-10 Thunderbolt II, F/A-18 Hornet and the F-16 Fighting Falcon.

The enemy fighters had accelerated up to mach 1.8, about the maximum of the old fighters, and the Sea Striker pilots knew that it was simply a matter of time until something happened.
The fighter could not be effectively be rearmored but due to the elimination of most of the fuel tankage, the fighter could be reinforced internally so it could withstand greater damage.
The Coalition fighters had expended all of their long range missiles previously and were left with only their internal pulse lasers to deal with their opponents.

 The Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF)
The USAF was also considering a next-generation strike aircraft and a replacement for the F-16, with the designation of "Multi-Role Fighter (MRF)".
At first, the JAST office was generally regarded as just another inept defense boondoggle, but under the direction of Air Force Major General George Muellner it quickly attained a critical mass for actually building a next-generation strike fighter.
Boeing, which had not developed an operational fighter since the P-26 Peashooter of the 1930s, chose an unusual (unkindly described by some as "butt-ugly") design with smooth stealthy contours, a delta wing, a vee tail, and a scoop jet intake under the nose.

 F-16.net :: View topic - F-22 Raptor vs F-35 Joint Strike Fighter
According to the data mentioned above, when both of the fighters (F-35C and Rafale) carry the roughly equal amount of fuel and weapon-load, it seems that their combat radii should also be roughly equal to, or even Rafale M maybe a little longer..............
And don't forget it, when the Rafale carries the roughly equal amount of fuel (8,901 kg) and weapon-load (2,130 kg) to F-35C, most of them have to be carried outsides and induce spectacular amount of additional drag.
With the striking configuration of AIM-120*2 + 2000 Ib bomb*2 in the internal weapon bays (Total weapon load: about 2,130 kg), this amount of internal fuel will bring the striking radius of 1,480 km-class to the F-35C.

 Leveraging F-35 STOVL capabilities for maximum effects
What's interesting is that TODAY with the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) which can land and take-off from a hover using life-fans and a vectored rear exhaust nozzle could do fleet air defense just like the Hurricat did from any ship with a landing pad and not have to be discarded in the water.
The two-seat version of the JSF should have the rear crewman facing AFT to be a better look-out for enemy fighters and assess strike damage, JU-87 Stuka and SDB Dauntless dive bomber-style.
What's interesting is that after the Hurricane fighter was done warding off a Condor, it couldn't land safely in the water as a landplane without floats, skis or boat hull shape and had to violently ditch, putting the pilot's life in severe jeopardy in the frigid North Atlantic, but these were courageous can-do men.
