The US Marine Corps’ 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW) has received the first F-35C Lightning II fighter jet for Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA) 314 at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.

It also has large internal fuel storage and the ability to refuel in-flight, extending its range and allowing for enhanced flight time.
