Lockheed Martin sent us this impressive shot by Matt Short of the F-35 Lightning II showing all the weaponry it can carry. Of course, it can't carry everything you see at the same time, just a few of them. But it's designed to carry—and fire—any of them.
An F-35A, at Edwards AFB, Calif., is pictured with its F-35 Systems Development and Demonstration Weapons Suite the aircraft is designed to carry. The F-35 can carry more than 35-hundred pounds of ordinance in Low Observable (stealth) mode and over 18-thousand pounds uncontested. (Lockheed Martin Photo by Matt Short)
Among others you can see the AIM-120 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM), the GBU-39 Small Diameter Bomb to the AIM-132 Advanced Short Range Air-to-Air Missile (ASRAAM), the Paveway IV missiles, and the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM).
