This briefing focuses upon the strategic impact of fleet wide U.S. and allied acquisition and operation of F-35s. This "flying combat system" deployed and operated as a fleet has strategic consequences. The allies are always forward deployed; US forces can plug into the F-35 And Aegis fleets in the Pacific and provide surge and augmentation capability or the US can lead an effort to which allies can contribute. The entire power projection dynamic is altered; your power projection capability is ALWAYS forward deployed.
