  2. 2. Baseline •  The USMC Is Buying the F-35B To Operate in Its Diverse Operations, But Will Be a Core Part of the ARG-MEU or the Expeditionary Strike Group and Operate Off of Ships •  The Brits Are Buying the B To Operate Off of Their New Aircraft Carriers, But Can Operate Off of a Diversity of Airfields Ashore as Well •  The Italians Are Buying the B To Operate Off of Their Aircraft Carriers But Can Operate Off of a Diversity of Airfields Ashore as Well and will be part of the Italian Air Force as well as Navy. •  It is anticipated that Singapore will buy F-35Bs as well. Making this assumption, there will be a baseline of 4 F-35B national fleets from which to build a coalition approach. •  And Innovations Learned by One Member of the B Group Can Be Shared With All –  E.g., as the USMC Looks To Move Expeditionary Strike Packages Off of Ships They Can Operate Off a Wide Variety of Bases Created on the Fly 2
  3. 3. What 4 Members of the F-35B “Club” Provides •  Enhanced Capacity To Cross-Learn •  Shaping Common Con-Ops •  Provides Significant Moving Global Coverage Because Rooted in the Operation of Ships, and Able To Move About Because Not tied to Fixed Airfields •  A Global Mobile Force •  And With the Marines Leading the Way on Deployable Weapons and Refueling Packages the Ability To Operate on a Global Basis With Flexible Tools Is Significantly Enhanced 3
