The Navy F35 was designed to not need a carrier and to be vertical takeoff, thus it is a total failure
Did you get out of bed on the wrong side today, Relying on junk journalism is not a good idea when forming an opinion. The Navies F35C was never designed to be a vertical or even short takeoff aircraft but rather a conventional carrier launched aircraft. The F35 B was always meant to be a SHORT TAKEOFF and vertical landing aircraft and that is what it is. I would suggest a more logical. fact based from reliable sources approach, to any argument, rather than an emotive response based on junk journalism.

You are an ignorant troll. The rhetorical question on the US Navy’s F-35C below, has destroyed your standing to other members of DT.

Q: If the F-35C is such a failure, why did the world’s largest user of the STOVL F-35B also buy the F-35C?​

There are two services using the C model — the US Navy and US Marines (as the largest user of the F-35B).
22 months after the 1st US Navy squadron declared its IOC for the F-35C, the 1st US Marine Corp squadron declared its IOC.

I know it is understand, but if bother to read the 3 threads on the F-35, you might learn something.
You may want to read up on P5CTS.
